A visit with friends as well as eagles, loons, fish, kayaking and a sunny day. And..a badger.

This Northern was placed on the menu.  

Feeding of the fish.

It's a takeout menu. 

Headed home to enjoy lunch.

Here is something you don't see every day.  A Badger.  We do live in the Badger state.
Photo by friends.
Badger State  Although the badger has been closely associated with Wisconsin since territorial days, it was not declared the official state animal until 1957. Over the years its likeness had been incorporated in the state coat of arms, the seal, the flag and even State Capitol architecture, as well as being immortalized in the song "On, Wisconsin!" ("Grand old bager state!")
