Aug 12, 2013 - third time's the charm

Lawsonia is named after Victor Lawson, a wealthy publishing tycoon from Chicago. In the late 1800's his wife fell in love with Green Lake, the deepest lake in Wisconsin and after a boat ride on it, she sheltered in a cove during a thunderstorm. She chose this spot to build a summer place complete with golf course. At the time the land belonged to dairy farmers, but once they sold their farms, the Lawsons let the place go natural.

Hi Everyone: Since our last update from Milford Lake State Park, we have traveled back home to WI with our new home on wheels and had it parked at Ken's sister's house for a week while we loaded it up. Our trip back went well considering it was the first time we pulled the RV. On our way home we spent one night at a casino/rv park in Iowa and a night at a friend's house in Rock Falls, IL. We are now at our new home base, Whispering Oaks RV park in Green Lake, WI, where we will be staying for the Summer. We are nestled among the oak trees....
