September 9, 2018 – Mequon, Wisconsin

We left Maryland and took a quick trip back to Wisconsin to pick up my old roll-top desk that daughter Jennifer didn’t want any more. Jennifer took us on a new walk while the boys were in school. It is on the campus of Concordia University overlooking Lake Michigan.

That’s it: a zigzag sidewalk running down the tall bank.

Jennifer led the way.

There is also a staircase for those who want to take the short route. We did a bit of sidewalk and then some stairs.

This is looking back up from the bottom.

A man was weed-whacking on the massive hill.  Andy and I joked that Spence would love that.

The beach was full of pebbles and driftwood.

There were also some large boulders placed along the bottom of the hill to control erosion.  Jennifer showed us where grandson Owen likes to mine jewels.

Andy clung to the handrail going back up the stairs.  He made it all the way without too much trouble.  His new right knee is doing well and now we are planning for the new left knee.

    Gee, I guess if this was back in September, I am not so surprised to see the flowers blooming! It’s been a mild fall, but here in the frozen north it’s been a while since blooms have been frosted. I had to go back to the top to see the date, though…
