Travel: Bayfield, Wisconsin [Day 2]

We woke up in our Airbnb just south of Bayfield and enjoyed a homemade breakfast of an egg baked with green onions, rhubarb muffins, and bananas.
We made our way north again and turned on highway J where the majority of the fruit farms are located. The first one we came to was Blue Vista Farm and we stopped there for raspberry picking.
Craig looks excited here, but he wasn't as thrilled to be berry picking as I was. 
We both enjoyed picking a small amount and now I want raspberry bushes in our yard!

Blue Vista also had an amazing meditation yert on-site. 

Isn't this space so relaxing?

Next, we headed west on some horrible gravel roads to Apostle Islands National Seashore. Most people go there to kayak, but we decided to hike to view the caves. The first quarter of the hike was on wood-planked paths and then we came to many muddy patches. 
It felt like we were never going to get to see the caves, but once we did, they were very pretty from above. 

No kayaking for us this trip, so we just watched the kayakers coming in.

Once we were back in town, I wanted to check out Big Water Coffee roasters.
I picked up a bag for myself and one for my mom and dad. They roast the beans on site!
Loved the iced coffee I had from there!
The hike left us hungry, so we checked out a few places for lunch and settled on The Fat Radish.
We were a little disappointed because we both wanted to order wraps with quinoa in them and they were out of quinoa, so we settled on sharing a caprese veggie sandwich instead!
Thanks to a small lunch, we still had room for ice cream!
There wasn't much else to check out in Bayfield, so we left downtown and headed over to Houghton Falls. It was recommended on a few sites and by the woman we rented our room from.
The hike was easy and beautiful. We loved the fews at the shoreline!
Our final destination for the evening was to Lac du Flambeau to check into our cute cabin at Dillman's Bay Resort
Here's our room!
The best part was the beautiful view of the lake.
One of the many things we loved about Dillman's was that we could use some of the equipment for free. I love paddleboating, so we did that for a little bit before moving onto kayaking. It was my first time kayaking solo that far, so I was pretty rocky at first. Once I got the hang of it I enjoyed my experience.
After spending time out on the water, we walked around the resort to check it out. We found a ping pong table and played for a bit! 
That was about it for our varied day two of our vacation up north!
