Not a High Sea's Adventure

The Waupaca Chief...paddle wheel . This was how we toured the 8 lakes in the chain of lakes, Waupaca, Wi.
NOT A HIGH SEA'S ADVENTURE !
 
A vintage paddle boat waiting at the dock was very inviting. The captain was greeting the guests at the gangplank..this was going to be, A JOURNEY ON THE CHAIN OF LAKES, around Waupaca, Wisconsin
 
I wasn't excited about the prospect of taking a 2 hour boat ride, but certainly would have been sorry to haved missed this trip.
Before leaving for Waupaca, the weather was threatening, with a prediction of rain in the forecast. Of course that added to my concern about the event. I love the water, but motion is not my friend.
 
There are a few more photo's to see, they are in the form of a slide show..be patient and watch both sets of photo's go by.  As you'll notice the sun was shining the water calm and the temperature comfortable..
 
It was to my relief the water was calm, a slight breeze and warm sunshine, took away all of my fears and turned it into a day to rememember!

The chain of lakes has 21 lakes..both small and large. Some have islands..and a few of the islands have homes or buildings of some sort.
 
 
 

More to see in Waupaca...

Before lunch we visited one of the Pastor's from our church who moved on to Waupaca to be the lead Pastor at the First Assembly of God Church there. We enjoyed seeing his new church and also toured The Spencer Lake Christian Camp grounds.

King Veterans Home and Rehabilitation Center

The King home and rehabilitation service for our veterans is overlooking the largest lake..We took a tour of the area and learned this is a State funded facility. I was impressed by the adjoining cemetary..with the countless rows of small white head stones marking our fallen hero's dating back to the civil war. Also honored and buried there is the famous military dog, Brownie..

So much more.....

Our last stop was at Kelly's farm and Ice Cream shop for a treat.. 

 

This was a great day and a full day.  This was just a few of the many photo's.  I hope this gave you a glimpse of the kind of day trips we do with the Honor Society at Victory International Fellowship Church..

 

Our next day trip is in July and we'll be going to Lake Geneva ...again with many interesting stops throughout the day...

 

In fall, our group will experience a VIP all inclusive status at the beautiful  STONE MOUNTAIN National Park & Historic Inn in Georgia.

Other highlights of the fall trip guided tours are:  The Castle that Love Built; Creation Museum; Churchill Downs; Gaylord Opryland Resort, Cherokee Museum; Mule pulled canal boat ride; Billy Graham Library & Museum...

This is a 7 night and 8 day trip....

 

Your invited to join us...you can call the church for a full brochure and information about our trips.  1-262-783-2900.. "we'd love to meet you.."
