[A beautiful Sunday morning in Sheboygan by Lake Michigan with “The Biddies”!]
[Beth ponders the lake, which is comparable to her Pacific Ocean in San Diego.]
[This was nice, and totally unexpected.]
[Beth and Chris were guides to “the wreck,” which they had visited on their previous evening walkabout.]
[And now to the waterfront, if you hadn’t guessed.]
[It was really too bad we didn’t have a beautiful day . . . NOT!]
There’s just something about bathrooms . . .
[After our morning stroll (yes Katie, being of high school age, preferred sleep to the walk), we went back for a visit to the Kohler Arts Center. We couldn’t check into camp, about 20 minutes away, until 1:00 pm.]
[And if you ever get the chance to visit the Kohler bathroom showroom, you will find it comparable to the Louvre.]
[The Center was still lightly populated at this hour of the morning, so the person at the information desk suggested we check out the restrooms first – all five of them, regardless of gender.]
[The girls had a rollicking good time in the boys’ room.]
[Katie, looking for a different perspective, took shots from atop the vanity.]
[This was the theme of the current exhibits.]
[An homage to Glen Campbell?]
[The artist, Loy Bowlin (the “Original Rhinestone Cowboy”), had a real thing for baubles, bangles, and beads.]
Ooops, ‘nother bathroom break . . .
[Beth was the perfect model here because she was color coordinated with it.]
[And this was the “family” restroom.]
[The Super gets up close and personal here with individual tiles . . . ]
[And back to the exhibits . . . ]
[Quite amazing – they really looked like old books, but were ceramics.]
[Same here . . . ]
[Interspersed throughout his art displays were . . . Mrs. Von Bruenchenhein.]
[This was 3D . . . oy!]
The Exhibit Overview . . .
[The Super’s contributions . . . ]
At last, the main ladies’ room . . .
[Reetz caught me in here!]
[Time to go . . . ]
[Some final exterior shots . . . ]
[Tiki Bar, Victorian Village, Elkhart Lake. Be there. Aloha.]
[This has become a regular stop before camp arrival – it’s on the opposite end of the lake. The Tiki Bar is a nice place to sit and enjoy a Bloody Mary . . . and the views.]
[Could I please have more “garbage” with my Bloody Mary?]
[The bewitching hour as we drive into camp . . . ]
[Katie will be a high school sophomore this year and successfully piloted the Simon clan from Sheboygan to camp on her learner’s permit. Uffda, they all grow up so fast!]
[Beth and Chris hopped out immediately to practice their tournament corn hole skills.]
