During the winter you could roll a bowling ball down Rittenhouse Avenue and likely never hit a thing. That all is about to change this weekend and hopefully so. Tourism is the life blood of Bayfield and thankfully there are very loyal visitors that seem to come no matter what is happening in the world. Sometimes more and sometimes less but they always come. I think it's important to alter the routine and get out of that rut. It really opens the eyes to see the big lake and some great scenery. Some nice dinners are wonderful also and the Bayfield area has some nice places to dine. Tomorrow night I'm guessing the Madeline Ferry will be full of cars heading to summer homes on Madeline Island or Big Bay campground for the weekend.
