My daughter treated me to a belated lunch today in honor of Mother’s Day. We met at a bistro about halfway between Milwaukee and Madison, then walked around the nearby state park for a while, visited the Farmer’s Market on the square and stopped by the beach of Rock Lake. The late afternoon sun sparkling on the water made me think of so many summer visits to my grandmother’s cottage on Lake Michigan. Young kids were playing about in the sand, and my daughter and I rolled up our pants and waded in the cool water. Ah, to be young, blonde and carefree again!
