I took a little trip to Escanaba via Fond du Lac, Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Oconto, and Menominee.
My first stop along the journey was at Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac to check out Wisconsin’s largest inland lake, Lake Winnebago. It was definitely windy!
The second stop on my trip was the Harbor Centre Marina in Sheboygan. I did a little climbing on the rocks and dodged a few waves to keep dry.
After visiting all 254 courthouses in Texas, you can say I have an eye for courthouses and a penchant to take selfies at them. I spotted the Manitowoc County Courthouse along the way and had to check it out!
After getting to Oconto, a narrow road got me to the edge of the breakwater. Navigating this drive with other cars was a little nerve-racking, but the views were worth it.
I had hit Michigan and I was hungry. I searched for a pasty shop and found Colonel K’s Pasties. I was stuffed after having a ham and cheese pasty and some jerky noodle soup.
Michigan 35 was a scenic drive. It was amazing seeing the shore of Lake Michigan and there were some cool places to stop along the way. This wayside had a nice beach that if there were a palm tree there, you might think it was in a tropical location.
I made it to Escanaba where it was a balmy 66F (19C) out. Needless, to say, I had the beach to myself. It was relaxing taking in the nature and getting ready to hightail it back to Madison.
