Upon our return to dry land, we were ready for lunch and headed to Monk's, a hole in the wall on Broadway recommended by Andy Whittington. It was a great choice with great hamburgers of all types. One knows it must be good if they charge extra for pickles and onions. Sitting across from us were Wayne and Evelyn Parkins. Monk's is worth a return visit.... even if we have to pay for the pickles!

             The Dells has something for everyone. Of the one hundred people in our delegation, it appears every place was visited. Among the sites were the Circus World Museum at Baraboo, the Ho-Chunk casino which is run by Native Americans, the Mt. Olympus water park, the Jet Boats, the Ducks, the Tanger Outlet Mall, Noah's Ark water park, Famous Dave's, the Pizza Pub, Nig's Bar, Buffalo Phil's, Das Boot, the Upper Dells and Lower Dells boat trips, all the shopping on Broadway Street, the afore mentioned antique malls, the local miniature golf courses and thrill rides galore.

Marcia Boswell and Heidi Ellison take in some sight-seeing.

             The Steppe family, Steve, Linda, Brook and Brianne stopped at the House on the Rock before leaving Wisconsin. This unique dwelling is a must see and contains eclectic collections of everything imaginable.

The Steppes at the House on the Rock. Unfortunately, the automated orchestra playing “Poet and Peasant Overture” was under repair.
