There is quite a lot to see here but with not having a car makes most places too far away for us. However, we did cycle 10 miles round trip to see "The Domes". These are glass domes enclosing a desert, tropical and show landscape. Unfortunately, the tropical landscape was closed for refurbishing. The show landscape had a nice display of "Mums" along with memorabilia from the 50s, records, and a '55 or '56 Chevvy.
When we returned to the boat we saw many kites being flown along the waterfront. Some of them were huge. Being a "Peter Pan" (I never seem to grow up although I do have a shadow) or a Toys R US Kid, I bought myself a kite to fly behind the boat. I have always wanted to be a high flyer!!!
We were planning on seeing the the Caterpillar Machine and Mining Museum whilst in Milwaukee but Gary decided he wanted to get going on towards Chicago. He is hoping to meet up with his cousin, Skip and take her and her husband for a ride on the boat.
We left Milwaukee early in the morning and were met again with rough waters. So, again I went downstairs and lay on my bed. After a rough 6 hour journey we arrived at Kenosha and stayed the night in a safe, protected marina. Again, salmon were jumping. I tried to get a photo by sitting patiently for at least 15 mins but all I could capture was the splash. Sorry, Dad.
Actually, we stayed two nights because of the winds so were able to tour Kenosha on our bicycles the next day. The city had one of the best war memorials to servicemen that I had ever seen. Each branch of the forces were honored in a very picturesque way.
Next stop - Chicago.
