Wisconsin Road Trip

I drove to Appleton, WI last weekend and stayed with my friend Wendy. She moved a year ago to be closer to family and I wanted to spend some time with her.
She is in a lovely townhouse with a great club house, pool and wonderful, caring neighbors nearby.

We toured downtown Appleton, the river front and Lawrence University.
We broke the tours into two days and didn't do a lot of walking since Wendy recently fell and broke her heel (Can you say OUCH?) and then a few days later fell again and broke her left wrist (another big OUCH). She gets around quite well on a scooter outside and inside too.

The weekend was spent at her house, eating, making cards, watching movies, and being entertained by friends that stopped by.
It was my kind of girl friend weekend - lots of time to chat, catch up on news, and relax.

Thanks, Wendy. I had a great time.

Note to granddaughters - M and L: this bear has glasses just like me!

Campus tour:

The flowers were beautiful all over campus.

Wendy's house (my car is in the driveway):

A baseball game on Sunday evening - Wendy's son Paul is in a league.

Monday afternoon and time to get on the road again. Happy travels, until next time.

Looks like you had a fabulous time! Her new place sounds awesome. Is Brokaw Hall at the university named after Tom Brokaw? Just curious. :)
