Friday, July 22 – Exploring Cheese Country

With the weather looking poorly this morning, and also for Saturday evening (’50% strong thunderstorms, large hail), we’ve decided  to leave the airplane hangared at West Bend and take it in early Sunday morning, where the weather is predicted to be great for the rest of the week.

We get a chance to see the countryside, and set out under stormy skies to find some real Wisconsin cheese.   We find it at Cedar Valley Dairy, in Washington County. The string cheese was  excellent, as well as the cheddar cheese curds (yes, they squeaked!).

We want to see more of Lake Michigan, so we head to Port Washington, a great fishing village.  Lunch at Wooster’s Bar was seafood enchiladas, and after a walk on the loooong seabreak.

Dinner was in downtown West Bend, at Grasshoppers, where we had salmon, cold carrot soup and silky pecan pie.   We’ve been checking weather all day, and it remains consistent; another storm system coming in Saturday night.
