Aventura de Wisconsin 2021. Parte 3.

This morning we got up early so we could catch the 9:00 ferry. I stopped at the coffee place next door, Brew, right before a line of people arrived. I also had to get breakfast as there was none at the hotel, and it was okay. Esta mañana nos despertamos pronto para coger el ferry a las 9 de la mañana. Antes, fui a la cafetería a lado, Brew, justo antes de una cola larga de personas llegó. También tenía que comprar desayuno como el hotel no lo ofrece, y no estaba mal.

The road to the ferry port is very curvy. La carraterra hasta el puerto del ferry es muy sinuosa.

We took the truck on the ferry to Washington Island, which was an adventure. I was anxious, but standing near the truck and watching the water go by soothed my nervous soul. We drove straight to Jackson Harbour to catch the 10:00 ferry, and there were a ton of people. That ferry only takes 10 minutes and is a much smaller boat (no motorized vehicles are allowed on Rock Island. Condujimos el camión al ferry, y fue una aventura. Estaba nervioso, pero salí del camión y vi el agua pasar por mis ojos me tranquilizó. Fuimos directamente a Jackson Harbor para coger otro ferry a las 10.00, y había muchas personas. Este ferry solo tardó unos 10 minutos y es mucho más pequeño (no se permite vehículos en Rock Island (Isla Roca).

We took off to the lighthouse, and the crowds thankfully thinned. It was a beautiful hike with hills and forest and always near the lake. We skipped the lighthouse tour as tiny place, no one else had masks and I’m not dealing with Covid Delta despite my vaccinated status, so we continued on the hike to see the beautiful island. Fuimos primero al faro, y ya no había tanta gente. Era una ruta preciosa con colinas y bosque, y siempre estaba cerca del Lago Michigan. No hicimos el tour del faro porque era un sitio pequeño, nadie (salvo nosotros) tenía mascarillas, y no quiero arreisgar Covid Delta aunque estoy vacunado. Continúamos por la senda para ver la isla bonita.

It was exactly what I needed. Era justo lo que necesitaba.

We took the shortcut so we could catch the 12:15 ferry back to Washington Island. I missed hiking and public transport. Tomamos un atajo para llegar para coger el ferry a las 12.15 a Washington Isla. Echaba de menos hacer senderismo e incluso transporte público.

On Washington Island, we drove to the Mountain Park lookout, which was closed due to structural issues. Better safe than sorry, but I would have liked to have seen it. We saw the Icelandic Church Stavkirke, which we ended up having to come back to as the Cherry Train had just stopped there and it was crowded. We nearly had the place to ourselves for the second visit. En Washington Isla, fuimos al mirador Mountain Park, pero estaba cerrado por problemas estructurales. Mejor seguro que arrepentirlo, pero estaría bien para verlo. Vimos la iglesia islandesa Stavkirke. El tren de cereza acabó de parar allí, entonces tuvimos que volver y estábamos solos para la segunda visita.

We tried driving to the coffee shop, but it was closed Mondays as a lot of places on the island turned out to be. We ended up driving out to the log cabin museum (closed but at least outside) and the farm museum (we just wanted pictures) and the Schoolhouse Beach, which was so crowded we drove right out. We ended up stopping at a sweets place for coffee and then tried a restaurant to get cherry pie. It was closed. I went to the gift shop across the street. Closed. Intentamos ir a una cafetería, pero estaba cerrado los lunes, como muchos sitios en la isla. Al final fuimos al museo de cabaña de madera y el museo de granjas (ambos estaban cerrados, pero solo queríamos hacer fotos) y la Playa Schoolhouse. Había demasiada gente allí y no paramos. Fuimos a una panadería de dulces para café. Un restaurante con tarta de cereza estaba cerrado. La tienda de regalos enfrente también estaba cerrado.

I don’t mind places closing on Monday’s, but usually there is more warning about it (and it’s usually museums…restaurants and gift shops closing during high tourist season?), so we were unprepared. No me importa que las empresas se cierren los lunes, pero normalmente hay más aviso (y usualmente son los museos. Los restaurantes y las tiendas de regalo no suelen cerrar durante la temporada alta.) Por eso, no estábamos preparados.

We ended up deciding to go back to the mainland to try our luck there and got in line at the ferrys when I saw a pizza place that was open. I surprised El Chico with a slice of pizza, and it was a great lunch. Decidimos volver para buscar algo para comer allí. Hicimos cola para el ferry cuando vi una pizzaría que estaba abierta. Le soprendí a mi chico con un trozo de pizza, y era una buena comida.

We crossed the Porte des Morts on the ferry again and I got to get some post cards at a gift shop in Gills Rock. We went to a cherry market near the hotel before resting. I walked across and read on the beach some (Black House by Stephen King and Peter Straub), and we are now trying to call in an order at Mink River Basin as I write. Cruzamos otra vez el Porte des Morts en el ferry otra vez, y compré algunos postales en una tienda de regalos en Gills Rock. Fuimos a un mercado de cerezas cerca del hotel antes de descansar. Crucé la calle para leer en la playa (Casa negra de Stephen King y Peter Straub), y ahora estamos intentando pedir de Mink River Basin mientras escribo.

A continuación.
