Getting to help out the Innkeepers of the Valley Springs Farm Bed and Breakfast in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, was one of the highlights of Red's stay! It loved bottle feeding the calves and assisting with milking the cows. It also loved walking the gardens and helping to pick the ripened fruits and veggies that they will serve for breakfast the next morning. Every bit about it was so unique; it's not every day you get to actually stay on a working farm!
Hidden Serenity Bed and Breakfast is located near the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest in Wisconsin and Red was anxious to discover what that really means. A trip to pristine Mauthe Lake was a great introduction for the Red Chair! Dipping all four feet in the water and sitting at the end of the pier while kids were fishing and others were kayaking on the lake, Red could see why people love the peaceful waters and surrounding woods. But it was the trip up Parnell Tower in the heart of the forest that really helped Red understand what this area is all about. From high above the trees Red could see the way that the glacier had made its mark on the land. Hills called Kames, Moraines, Eskers and the stunning Kettles dot the landscape and Red was in awe. The National Scenic Ice Age Trail winds its way through the forest and Red has to admit, it is a great workout!
Befriending the Jo-Don Farm Camels
The Red Chair always loves a trip to a local zoo. While visiting the Christmas House Bed and Breakfast in Racine, Wisconsin, Innkeeper Pamela spent the Day showing Red the best spots to visit around town. Red's highlight of the day, befriending the camels of Jo-Don Farms. Red posed for a couple quick pics with the photogenic camels (we love the one with the hair!) and gave them some treats as thanks. Red loved the day at the local zoo!
