In Lake Geneva we stayed at the Mill Creek Hotel, which was wonderful- and so much cheaper than everywhere else I looked! I was kind of amazed. We had a great time eating out, going to the movies, and playing on the lake. I would have been afraid, ok more afraid, of falling through the ice, but I figured if all these SUVs were safe then disaster was maybe unlikely.
There were plenty of ice fishers out in their little shanties, and also a big sailboat race on the other side of the lake. You can't see the boats very well in this picture, but they were just flying across the lake. Apparently boats go faster on skates/skis than they do in the water...I thought this was cool looking right at the edge- the ice looks like it got just slammed into the shore!Considering stepping out... Here he goes... I call this one, Boy on Lake:Fine, I'll try it too:As it turns out, ice actually IS slippery:Not surprisingly, Bryan stayed upright more than I did:
What a great weekend!
(Sidenote, remember when I used to wear contacts? Yea, those were the days. Due to being decently scared by my opthalmologist-friend Allison about all sorts of horrible things like cornea perforation, transplants and blindness, I agreed to not wear my contacts until my corneal ulcer has completely healed. But seriously, who exactly gets corneal ulcers?! I didn't even know it was possible to get an ulcer on your eyeball. Sigh...)
