The Fun doesn't Stop

Zoo Entrance
In addition to fairs and festivals we entertained ourselves at the Shalom Wildlife Zoo in West Bend, Wisconsin.


This privately owned sanctuary, on over 100  lovely acres, care for hundreds of animals.

Since we were due for more showers we opted for the golf cart to make our way around. If the animals didn't care about the rain who were we to complain.

Fireside Theater-Fort Atkinson
The fun didn't stop there, I was treated to an evening at the Fireside Theater in Fort Atkinson, WI. Having been a native of Wisconsin this iconic theater venue has been around for almost 40 years. Instead of theater in the round it has theater in the square. Scenes disappear in the center by a platform that's lowered down below the stage dramatically reappearing.

Finally it was my turn to attend. We had a lovely meal followed by a performance of Million Dollar Quartet.


  1. Imagine right there in West Bend, Shalom no less. I guess animals should get some peace and quiet too.

  2. I've never been to the Fireside Dinner theater. It's one of those things that you figure you can do "any time" since it's so close to home. Sigh...and then home moves and the opportunity is gone.
