Then it was on to the smaller but lovely Green Lake. Friends we met while cruising live nearby and it was a pleasure to see them again. As natives of Wisconsin, they were able to give us lots of good advice. We saw them again when we moved on to Stevens Point.

On June 13 we arrived in Eagle River where we had booked a townhouse on Voyageur Lake for one month. The lake is one of 28 composing the world's largest chain of lakes. We were told Wisconsin has more lakes that Minnesota; there are 1,300 in this general area alone. With so much water, you can imagine how popular fishing and boating are here. We were fortunate that neighbors invited us for a boat ride and gave us a tour of
many of the connected lakes.

Wisconsin has long been famous as a major beer producer. Though some of the best known companies are defunct or moved out of state, craft beers have become hugely popular and there are countless microbreweries. New Glarus Brewing Company is considered one of the best in the country.
