The distance was only 180 miles, but it truly was a world away from Chicago.
I’m referring to the four-day summer sojourn — all right “vacation” — Susan and I took earlier this week to get away from it all. Our base camp was the Heidel House Resort and Spa in Green Lake, Wisconsin, a wonderful venue with lots of lake frontage, walking paths, trees and quiet.
The outdoor pool was pretty cool, too.
But what was just as enjoyable was visits to other small towns nearby. Our daily jaunts took use to Berlin, Princeton and Ripon — the birthplace of the Republican Party, quite coincidental since the Republican National Committee held its gathering in Cleveland earlier this week.
In fact, we learned a lot about small towns and the people who live and work there, as evidenced by the images below.

Regular followers know that the PRDude frequently heads north to take in the wonders and splendor of Wisconsin. Here are some past posts:
- A July 2015 post and travelogue on Port Washington, a one time commercial fishing town 25 miles north of Milwaukee.
- The Yerkes Observatory near Lake Geneva provided the inspiration for a March 2015 commentary, complete with pictures.
- And, reaching back to December of 2011, I commented on why I love the Dairy State when it gets cold.
