A bit of a leisurely morning, a nice breakfast downstairs. Again no real 'have to do' things on our list, just a drive and see what we come across. Took off after nine and made our way west and soon we were among the mountains and lakes again. When I say lakes, I mean hundreds and hundreds of them, some of them huge.

Toast, Eggs, and Wheat-a-bix – While the first two items are self-explanatory, Wheat-a-bix comes in an oval “cake” of sorts. Add milk and the cake disintegrates and you have your own cereal.
High: Swing dancing and pleasant interactions with the locals
Low: Paying so much for a scoop of ice cream! But it was still delicious...
