Briefly Lost in Wisconsin
Debbie, Marcia 1 and I made plans to head up to Door County to Debbie’s condo to do a little plein air painting. We have all been brushing up our plein air skills in anticipation of the Wauwatosa Plein Air Affair.
We left on a Thursday evening and both Marcia 1 and I took Friday off of work. Marcia 1 drove Debbie’s 4 runner, and we were pretty packed in with all of our easels, overnight bags, and other art accoutrements. We stopped at an Arby’s for a quick dinner and proceeded on our way. There was such a beautiful sunset that evening, that we almost couldn’t believe our eyes while heading up towards Green Bay….until we passed a turn-off for Marinette. Marcia 1 thought we should have taken the turn-off, so we turned around and headed that way. Debbie’s mapquest directions said to take exit 285, so we did, but everything looked so unfamiliar, that we stopped at a gas station. When I asked the girl behind the counter how to get to Hwy 57 to Sturgeon Bay, she looked at me incredulously and said “You have to turn around and go back to Green Bay, go over the bridge, and take the second exit on your right”, which, I might add, is also exit 285. So Marcia1, Debbie and I headed to the ladies room for a pitstop and as soon as we got in there, all burst into laughter. All I could think of was “geez, what a group of distractable ditzes”!
