One of our and everyone’s favorite places to eat in Minocqua is Norwood Pines. Not only is the food so good but the atmosphere is always so wonderful. They decorate their archways for all the seasons so tonight I am sharing a winter picture of Norwood Pines. (I don’t know who the guy is! )

We joined Dick’s cousin & wife Michael & Marianne at Boulder Junction’s Christmas Walk. First dinner at a favorite place The Headwaters. Then visiting all the shops downtown. It was a bit chilly but with the caroling and horse drawn hayrides it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Everywhere you look!!!
Minocqua had a fun time for Halloween, including a pumpkin tree! They asked anyone who wanted to bring their carved pumpkins to Torpy Park where they were displayed for all to enjoy. There were some great designs. Sorry you can’t see detail but it was getting dark by the time it was done and I needed to be farther away to get the whole tree.
Today was Winter Park Day in Minocqua. Winter Park is the beautiful cross country ski center just 5 miles from us. A very generous man by the name of Ken Aldridge just purchased 5 square miles of land that he is putting in a conservancy to preserve the winter park ski trails. So today they honored him and provided music and food, hayrides and games for everyone to enjoy the wonderful facility Minocqua has. It was a beautiful day and many people came out to enjoy the park! Thank you Ken!
One of the families staying here at the resort visited The Northwoods Wildlife Center last week. They were told that they had 5 small bears and they were running out of food for them. So when they came back their daughter Kyrea asked me if she could catch some small fish and take into the Wildlife center for the bears. So the next day all the kids were busy catching fish until they almost filled a bucket and took them in. Here is a picture of the kids, Sierra, Teagan, Dad Brad, Kyrea and Mazzie at the Wildlife Center with 150 fish, Kyrea and a volunteer at the Center and one of the bears swimming. The bears are in a back area and you can only see them by camera in the Center. Great job Kids!!!!!
Here is a peak look at the new Minocqua Park that is on the grounds of the old Circle M Corral. It is turning out just beautiful with 3 little league ball diamonds, 2 soccer/football fields, 2 sand volleyball and a beautiful pavillion and festival grounds. We hope to have events going on there every weekend!!!
