Big Star Outing

Richie and I headed up to Don and Maggie's cottage on Big Star Lake.  It's a perfect drive...only about an hour and a half from home.
It's a good sized lake.  It was a bit breezy but a nice day for a pontoon boat ride.
We took a little walk and then the four of us headed up to Baldwin.

Notice the sweatshirts............there is a chill in the air!
 Cute little sandwich shop across from the fish farm.

Then we head to Jones Ice Cream in Baldwin. 
 Homemade ice institution.
 Maggie and Don got a single dip cone!
 Don highly recommended the mini banana split so I couldn't resist!
Cool  vintage ice cream scoops on the wall.  Maggie got the idea to start collecting them from here.
It was a good, relaxing day!


  1. Looks like a fun day! Nothing better than Jones ice cream . . . .
    Fall is certainly in the air!

  2. Hi Barb, You guys look so cozy in your sweatshirts. Don't you love these first cool days? Looked like a great place to spend a late summer afternoon. Love, Penny
