"Getting to know the Bayfield area......."

Our 2nd full day in Bayfield was set aside to wander about town with plans for an afternoon show at "Big Top Chautauqua".

Another photo with Don on the deck of the house in which we stayed. We had the entire 2nd story.

One of the first sights to greet us upon arriving in town on Monday were these "Tourist Cottages" other name except those words on a small hand painted sign on the front lawn could be found. I found them to be EXTREMELY cute......

As you can "somewhat" see from this photo, they are situated up on the hill above the town of Bayfield and have a beautiful view of Lake Superior and The Apostle Islands.

After exploring Bayfield throughout the morning, we drove out to Mount Ashwabay, the local ski slope which plays host to "Big Top Chautauqua" in the summer months.

Notice the chair lift behind the sign?

We attended a Garrison Keillor show.......

After the show, we drove back into town, changed clothes (I put on long pants!!!!), and went out to dinner at The Old Rittenhouse Inn. This was also one of the places we checked into about staying for the week, but made the decision to stay closer to the water.

A view of the Inn.......a beautiful piece of local architecture, eh? :)

Our day trip to Madeline Island tomorrow......
