A new view and color of the trees outside from the main chapel


IMG_6262
Pastor David played guitar and Daniel played piano for the morning worship


IMG_6265
Very nice fixtures and furnishings in the main chapel


IMG_6275
Jessica plays Cranium (you can tell she's trying to hint at Star Trek here - right?)


IMG_6282
More fire...I wonder how people of ages past survived with all the smoke they must have inhaled...of course bad food, lack of heat, famine, disease and lack of plumbing were probably also an issue


IMG_6292
Heather and Wes in the foreground, Lisa and Joe further back and waaaay back Andrew and Angela


IMG_6303
The suites were a bit small and obviously built for a spiritual community with these sinks, there must have been almost 20 of them here. When you have morning prayer and wake up at the same time I guess you need sink capacity.

IMG_6307
We didn't really have strict quiet areas, but most of the place was quiet even with all of us there due to the size


IMG_6309
Breakfast on Sunday I think, Lisa, Heather and Dave sit on the left...Jessie, Jordan, and Andy sit on the right


IMG_6310
I wish we needed the air conditioner on...


IMG_6312
An the best thing about the retreat center was the ecclectic collection of mugs...


IMG_6316
And the Streisand music...


IMG_6317
And the extensive library...


IMG_6322
Andrew, Angela, Jessie, and Dave chat before our last meeting together


IMG_6323

Jordan and Laurie are engaged and see what good communication techniques they have learned from the weekend!


IMG_6343
More gargoyles...now IN the main chapel...kinda creepy


IMG_6345*
Nice altar


IMG_6347
Just when you thought you'd found all the frightening gargoyles there were more hiding in the rafters!


IMG_6360
The main fireplace was a very nice feature


IMG_6367
Main conference room


IMG_6369
Why NOT put a carriage above the room?


IMG_6370
Nice pottery at the center of the main conference room


IMG_6374
Away we all drive, some of us headed towards Sturgeon Bay for lunch


IMG_6383
What a nice barn


IMG_6384
When you're out on a peninsula with high winds I guess these weights help steady the power/telephone lines


IMG_6392
Resale and Antiques...those are so passe, but GOODIES - ever seen those for sale before?


IMG_6394
Marilyn poses beneath the menu at the wonderful Sturgeon Bay restauraunt Perry's Cherry Diner and if you really like it, you can buy it for $259k!


IMG_6395
We're nice to chickens...but only on the weekend (for those city folk from Milwaukee and Chicago?)


IMG_6401
Yum...pancakes with cherries


IMG_6403
More Yum...Cherry Pie


IMG_6407
The Paul R. Tregurtha of Wilmington, Delaware (nice tax haven) which is the Queen of the Lakes as the longest boat on the great lakes at 1,013 06 (308.91m). I guess Paul CAN be a Queen. This ship sits alongside the Herbert C. Jackson, both of the Interlake Steamship Company, info from Boat Nerd


IMG_6416
It gets cold up north...


IMG_6418
Lots of restaurants in gas stations along I-43 and here's a combination you'll see nowhere else - Target, BP, and MacDonald's!


IMG_6423
Every church should have a backup ark just in case


IMG_6425
Back to Milwaukee!


IMG_6428
Galloping horses through the snow


IMG_6430
The Acuity (property and casualty insurer) building in Sheboygan is a very beautiful structure with what looks like Chihuly glass in the 50-foot central atrium.
Nearby, Acuity has raised the largest flagpole in the US and rebuilt it now three times (first when it fell down almost on I-43, second to place it further away and to make it the largest US flagpole, and now to allow access to replace the beacon lightbulb on top.
The flag weighs 300 pounds and each star is 3 feet high, the timing of the hoist motor for the flag will allow it to reach the top just as the Star Spangled Banner ends.
