Journal entry – 30 June 2015, Tues

Journal entries are just that – the digital copy of my hand-written entries in my journal. If you aren’t interested in the daily details of our adventure, feel free to skip on to the next “regular” post.

After breakfast we head down the road to visit Holy Hill, passing through Hubertus, WI. Not only are there 14 sets of sculptures depicting Christ’s crucification but the cathedral itself is gorgeous. We walk the 187 steps up to the top of the tower. Already up on top of a hill, the view from the tower is beautiful! We could see for quite a distance, even though it was a cloudy day.

Once we finish our visit I call a church near Joni’s to see if we could borrow parking for a week during our visit. The person we need to speak to is on the other line so I leave a message and we mosey along toward Joni’s. She has come up with a couple of options for us – either the nearby Piggly Wiggly or, if I think we can fit, in their front parking lot at the cottage.

After looking I definitely believe we can fit, so we bring the RV in and park it in front of the cottage, with the trailer parked separately over in a corner. We love their cottage on the lake – it’s got plenty of room for two, a beautiful view of the lake, 10′ from their window.

Jim and Joni toured our RV, we tour their house, and generally chat and catch up.

We had a delicious beef tenderloin for supper and after dishes go for a bike ride with Jim – showing us some sights from around Okauchee  Lake.

After showers Jim heads to bed and we sit up talking with Joni. She showed Ashley some stitches on the knitting needles. I finished crocheting the last of my ball of string – will have to dig some more out. Sleeping on the air mattress up in “Jackie’s loft”.
