Miller Park -- Go Brewers!

Today I got to go cheer on the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park in Milwaukee, WI. I got in for free because I don't take up a whole seat of my own, you know. I had a beer called Leinenkugel's Honey Weiss -- hunny in beer, what a great idea!

I had a good time watching the game from our Terrace seats -- the Brewers beat the Padres 12-9 and there were tons of home runs -- I think 6 of them? The Chorizo won the Sausage Race. Someday I still hope to meet the Racing Sausages -- a bear has to dream big.

Door County, Wisconsin

Well, my blogosphere friends, no one guessed from my last post, but I am in Wisconsin for the week. I just got back from a few days relaxing up in Door County, enjoying fudge and cheese curds and cherry wine. Mmmmmm :)

Of course, I had to try a Door County fish boil while I was up there. Us bears love fish, you know! However, I'm not very good at catching my own fish -- my arms are just too little, you see -- compared to my grizzly bear cousins. The idea of having a nice fisherman cook up a pot of fish and onions and potatoes just for me was a very nice one. When they threw the kerosene on the fire for the boil-over, the fireball and heat were ridiculous! See how surprised I look? It was a good thing they fed me after that.

The next day, I decided that I should make sure to exercise a little while I was sight-seeing, so we went to Peninsula State Park and did some hiking around. One of the highlights of the park is Eagle Tower, which is 75' tall and lets you see beautiful views of Eagle Harbor. I made sure to take lots of pictures to prove that I did exercise, as my figure is not proving anything these days.

Here is the view of the tower from the bottom, and me halfway up:

It is a long climb for a little bear!

Here I am at the top -- the view was beautiful!And then to add to the fun factor, I decided I was tired of walking. Every now and then I am adventurous -- so I took the fast way down off of the Tower and jumped down to a friend! Wahoo!!!!
More adventures to come soon!

Guess Where I Am?

This is a mystery post... let's see who can guess where I am traveling this week? After a plane trip and spending most of the day smooshed into small space, I unwound with friends and a beer. Not just any beer, mind you, but a special beer that a Bear can only get in this wonderful state I am traveling in. I know I'm originally a California Bear, but this state is growing on me.
More pictures to come from the week who knows where I am?!
