This Sunday morning was spent sleeping in. Ryan and I woke up at 9:30, drank coffee, talked a bit, then did a super intense ab workout. By the time we were showered and ready to go to breakfast the cafeteria was already serving lunch!
Today we decided to go on a boat tour! It would down the Milwaukee River and out onto Lake Michigan! Our tour began at 2pm! While waiting we played Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time while eating puppy chow. I did not do a good job of keeping Link alive. Sorry dude!
Boat tour time B)
Our boat was called the Vista King!
We passed this cute red boat on our way out from the docks:
Every bridge that we passed under had to lift up in order for our boat to fit! I don't remember what this particular type is called, but it looks like like an elevator lift. Check at all the ducks!!
Excellent views of the Milwaukee River Walk!
A randomly placed pink telephone booth!!! :)
The Milwaukee Ale House, which has the best nachos in the entire universe!! (I think all nachos are the best in the entire universe, but trust me, the ones here are superb!)
Another type of bridge we passed under. Our tour guide said this type is very rare nowadays.
On the way out to the lake! It got colder the further out we went. Ryan was a gentleman and let me borrow his jacket but we both still froze. Lesson learned. Boat tour? Bring layers!
The "Bridge to Nowhere" being remodeled...
Passing by the Discovery Museum...
The boat tour was super great! I learned a lot about the history of the river and its inhabitants and also saw a bunch of restaurants along the walkway I want to visit someday!
After the tour we walked the downtown. Here's an interesting fact: in addition to lovely flower stands for decor, there are also pieces of fruit spray painted all over the sidewalks. I'm not sure if these are graffiti or not, but they sure are everywhere! I'll document them the next time I'm out.
For dinner we stopped at a super fancy Subway Cafe.
After walking for awhile we stopped at the Art Museum to take photos of the fountains. They were dyed pink in honor of breast cancer awareness.
Back at the dorm we parted ways. Once back I cleaned up my room (we have dorm inspection this week) and got all my assignment due dates for the week written out. I spent the rest of the evening studying for my upcoming anatomy and physiology practical exam.
It was a wonderful, colorful day!
