Two Rivers to Manitowoc

6/15 – we didn’t get to spend much time in Two Rivers, but we learned two things about it:  it is the coldest town in Wisconsin, as it juts out into Lake Michigan, and it is the home of the ice cream sundae!image

Today was an easy walk south on the Maritime Trail that runs along the shore of Lake Michigan.  We’re keeping the walk short, only about 7 miles, to the EconoLodge in Manitowoc, where we will rest for a few days to give my blisters a chance to heal.

The Maritime Trail is multi-use, with lots of families out biking or walking on a beautiful (and chilly!) Sunday morning.  We were impressed with the many volunteer gardens planted along the trail for all to enjoy.  image

Now we are hunkered down in Manitowoc for some rest and to watch some World Cup. Here are some murals on the old buildings downtown:
