Dale and I went to Bayfield, Wisconsin, for our anniversary earlier this month. We had a lovely time in spite of the weather! It was very cold and even snowed a bit! That said, the place we stayed, pictured above, was very cute! It’s called the Grey Oak Guest House. It was literally the only place to stay because a marathon was happening that weekend and every hotel was booked for miles. We got very lucky to score this place and it ended up being adorable.
This was the view from our room.
Inside, we had nice digs. There was a private bath, a TV, Wi-Fi access and more!
We even had our own fireplace. We also controlled our own heat and a/c. Nice!
Every morning the owner would leave a platter of tasty bread and fruit for us. Wow, this place had amazing bread! Zucchini bread was especially tasty on our second morning. We also enjoyed a cup of fruit each morning. It was very tasty!
We supplied the wine and cheese and crackers for ourselves but in the hallway pantry there were plenty of silver and serving options! Cute place! More to come in later posts…
He had a lot of seeds! Ha! I love this little dude. I forgot to post this in September but had to share. More pics of our anniversary weekend will be coming…someday.
Our dear friend Meghan came to visit a few weeks back and we had a really nice time. We went to the Renegade Craft Fair on one day and to the Art Institute of Chicago the next. This is Meghan in front of the crazy huge Blue Marlin!
Meghan is a graphic designer but had never been to the Art Institute. She helped us have a greater appreciation for it, I think. This is a detail of the famous Nighthawks paintings, part of the permanent collection.
She particularly liked this one (and many others).
Dale took his own “artsy” shot in the new Modern Wing.
We had a really nice visit but we’re now buried in work and school!
