Day Trip & Park Romp

About two weeks ago, maybe more, we decided to visit Mt. Horeb, a little town not too far from us with a quaint atmosphere. We walked up and down the main drag, stopped in a chocolate shop, an antique mall, and a garden center (bought nothing but chocolate). We did make plans to eat a local brewery there sometime soon, and then decided to get a picnic lunch and take it to a park in Madison.

We went to an Italian deli on madison's south west side (almost Fitchburg) that may have smelled like heaven will smell. I'm pretty sure. We got sandwiches (Oh, yum!), chips, bread, and sodas and headed to a lake side park on Madison's far west side (actually in Middleton). The park was secluded, but bustling with lake dwellers, boats, and a few kids covered in sand and water.

There was a nice tree beside the playground, perfect for a little climb.

In all the years we've lived near Madison we never frequented the lake areas. The lakes in Madison are huge, and scenic. I really enjoyed getting a closer look at the boating activity and the shoreline. Yes, Californians, they have sailboats on lakes in the midwest.

Have a nice day everyone!
