Red's New Hobby
The Justin Trails Resort is home to two 18-basket professionally designed championship disc golf courses. After a quick lesson from the Innkeepers, Red set off with discs in hand to practice on their Classic Course, which has been ranked #1 in the state. Red was determined to eventually play their larger, Big Brother Course that features amazing vistas and fantastic challenges that keep the course exciting! On the last day Red decided it was time to see what it was made of and took to the course with the innkeepers. Turns out a bit more practice would be best but hey, Red found a great new hobby! Red will definitely be back again someday, and would love to take on the course again.
Red's Big Debut
The Red Chair loved learning all about the history of the Ringling Brothers in Baraboo Wisconsin and discovered the winter quarters for the Ringling Brothers Circus were housed in many buildings along Water Street in Baraboo. Now this area is owned by the Wisconsin State Historical Society and is where Circus World Museum resides. This is also where, with the encouragement of the innkeepers of the Ringling House Bed and Breakast, the Red Chair made its official Circus debut! Red watched most of the big top show before its act which featured trained horses and dogs, a juggler, a trapeze act, unicycler, clowns, two elephants, live music and a ringmaster (Red's future job). Then came Red's debut with the chair balancing act, the whole big top cast was there to cheer Red on. Could there be a career change in Red's future?!
While visiting The Livingston Inn in Madison, Wisconsin, Innkeeper Peggy took Red on a tour of the beautiful State Capitol building. The Red Chair felt stately while poised on the steps of this building which is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.
Portrait of a Chair
HH Bennett was the photographer who put Wisconsin Dells, WI on the map. Innkeepers of the Bowman's Oak Hill Bed and Breakfast brought Red to met "Victoria", a chair used for portraits in this original studio right on Broadway and heard all about "Leaping the Chasm" and how it was a shutter speed marvel of its day. Being big into photography, Red was just fascinated!
