If you're a Midwesterner, chances are, July is your prime time for adventures in lakes country. As someone who's written about this destination for nearly eight years, I can assure you it's never dull. The photographers and I get lost often. We eat the food from the cuisine shoot, ignore the bites from mosquitos, and happily do our job in the midst of white caps, rain, and near 100 degree days. If we have a rare, well-navigated day, with time to spare, we take a detour on the roads less traveled. This is our time to explore the shops and galleries we shot, have a glass of wine at the vineyard we're writing about, then follow the clues to new hidden gems that are destined to inspire a story. The interesting thing about lakes country is, just when you think you've seen it all, you'll be blown away by something new.
Goodbye flannel and boots with the fur, we'll see you again...I know for sure.
We're thankful for the sun, heat and rain - really anything that's not frozen is a big-time gain. Margaritas are the exception, with summer on the way, but first, let's show you the gorgeous homes and businesses of May.
