The sunlight was high in the sky, harsh and the shadows it cast where long. A few clouds graced us with their presence overhead throughout the day. It was only in the low to mid 20’s, but with the sun, I would have sworn it was 40. It was one of those Sunday’s that you welcome a drive; some time to be out and about – out of the house.
Today’s mission was simple…some cheese from the Eau Galle Cheese Factory. The outing was different in that we actually planned to go here rather than happening by it an hour early or 10 minutes after it closed. It is a somewhat narrow window to hit on a Sunday, 11-4:30. Blueberry Cheddar, Cranberry Cheddar, Buffalo Wing Jack and even Chocolate cheese…all seriously yummy.
While en route to and the return trip from our destination, we happily took in familiar sites. The drive through Porcupine, WI area and surrounding bluffs and valleys always affords spectacular views. The deer where out in numbers this day – no doubt soaking up some sun. They too seem anxious for Spring, or at the very least look it. These are not your common yard-fed critters.
Our last stop of the day before home was in Stockholm, WI at the Stockholm Pie Company. Oh my. Yes, I would love a slice of pecan pie. Small and quaint place with lots of character.
