We had a very easy drive of less than two hours
from Wisconsin Dells to the Wisconsin State Capitol of Madison. . .
but first, we need to do a little motor home maintenance.
may as well stop postponing this little chore. . .
Dave discovered that we were passing right by Camping World
on our way to the RV park in Madison. . .
and since the “house batteries” we needed to replace
we the same price there as other places he had checked,
may as well stop by and let them take care of it. . .
and while they did that
we may as well go tour the State House. . .right. . .
as we approached we could tell. . .
that it was going to be just lovely. . .
and it was. . .
sometimes you gotta take the tour. . .
or you won’t know about the Starfish Fossil located on the Northern Interior Stair Case. . .
or the trumpeter’s balcony located on Level 4. . .
where all the musicians reigned,
while the singers performed from Level 2. . .
now. . .isn’t that interesting?
and although we had been told by a blog reader (the best folks ever)
we may not have found out about taking the elevator to the 4th floor,
and climbing 46 more steps, and 11 spiral staircase steps
to the outside observation deck. . .SCORE!
loved Downtown Madison so much. . .
we went back on Saturday for the Art Fair and the Farmer’s Market. . .
here’s my favorite skyline view. ..
isn’t it just a beautiful little city?
and to top it off. . .our electric only campsite located at
was located next door to Lussier Family Heritage Center,
a sort of nature center, with all sorts of walking, hiking, biking, skiing trails. . .
and best of all. . .
I was able to pick blackberries. . .
enough to make us a wee little blackberry cobbler. . .perfection!
See you next time in CHICAGO. . .EEK!
