We were invited to stay with the Mary and Bob Madalinski my former neighbors. They were great hosts and Mary made sure we were fed well! It was fun talking about old times. Their now grown kids live nearby. Natalie and I were good friends before and we just picked up chatting as if I had never left. Loved it! Made me wish I was still there.
We finally got a chance to ride the motorcycle while in Wisconsin. That is after getting a new battery for it. What is it with batteries this trip? We rode to Westbend and lunched with my best friend from high school, Cindi. Then off to her house to meet her husband Dave. Another visit that seemed as if I never left and made me wish that I hadn't.
From Westbend we rode to Holy Hill Basilica a beautiful national Catholic Shrine. The ride there is curvy and the views are absolutely beautiful both on the way and from Holy Hill itself. I try to get out there every time I'm in the area. A personal pilgrimage you might say. This ride turned out to be the only one on our trip as Lester's back started hurting more than usual in Chicago. So I'm grateful we got to see this. (Unfortunately I left my camera at the Madalinski's so all these pictures are by phone camera.)
On the way back to the Madalinski's Lester saw a sign about a Daniel Boone park. Why does Daniel Boone pop up everywhere?
