The resort was wonderful; our Villa had a full kitchen, a massive king-sized bed in the master suite & two fireplaces in the unit to keep us nice & toasty. The resort is about a 3 hour scenic drive through Wisconsin from Green Bay -- though we were surprised to see how little the leaves had changed the further south we drove.
For our weekend away, we had no other plans except sleeping in, breakfast in bed, and getting outside as much as possible. We stayed off social media, we ate lots of good food, and enjoyed a long relaxing weekend. Although a bit cold, it was pretty perfect. Below are a few (ok, a lot) of snapshots from our trip!
Our first stop was Mirror Lake State Park; we had planned to rent kayaks & fish, but it was really cold, so we decided to walk the hiking trails instead.
The leaves were just starting to change.
The following morning
After breakfast we went to the Deer Farm & got to feed many different varieties of deer right from the palm of our hand! Not gonna lie, it kind of freaked me out at first... being in a pen with all those hungry deer. But then Zac forced me to feed them, and I lived to tell about it.
And... there were adorable pigs at the farm!
That afternoon, we returned to the resort & did some fishing. It was cool outside, but the sun was warm & it was sooo relaxing.
After that, Zac took me on my first Duck ride, which was very neat. It floors me how those vehicles can be on land one second, and in the water the next. Crazy!
We ended our evening with dinner at Ishnala's Supper Club -- a must visit spot, especially if you're in the mood for prime rib & good old fashioneds. However, GET THERE EARLY. Like right when they open, early. The place is a gem and the wait is insane, but it's such a great place.
The following morning was breakfast in bed again, followed by some Outdoor Channel & HGTV binge watching while we waited for the temps to warm up. Then it was off to hike in Devil's Lake State Park.
A lovely anniversary weekend, indeed.
P.S. Happy Halloween! May your day be filled with all treats and no tricks!
