Plan Your Visit:

Were you a Laura Ingalls fan? I loved those books and the tv show. I think I have seen all episodes? Did you have a favorite one? I couldn't get over the Ma and Pa... I did ask the hubs after we left the place, what was their real names, I know they were not Ma and Pa??! LOL! I didn't realize that her parents really got around ...they moved and moved across are great nation. Trying to make a living and keep their family living well and healthy. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!!! Beth ( ;

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal.

I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
