We arrived in Lake Geneva at about 9:30 or so and started our walk along the Shoreline Path a little before 10. This path goes along the entire shore of Lake Geneva through every one's backyards that live on the lake including all the mansions. It was a very nice walk and almost all the time was on a path that was well maintained. Sometimes it was paved, sometimes cobblestone, other times dirt or grass.
We had cool weather up here today. It felt like late Autumn actually. Upper 50's to lower 60's, cloudy and windy but at least the wind was not crossing the lake toward us so it wasn't too windy on our walk.
The homes on the path are amazing and very well maintained. Beautiful landscapes wonderful views of the lake. Lots of "No Trespassing" signs making sure you remembered to stay on the path. It took us about 2 1/2 hours to walk the 7 or 8 miles from lake Geneva to Williams Bay and enjoyed most of it. I brought along the camera to share some of the homes and some of the path.
This home was very nice as well but if you look to the left of the picture, they were setting up for what looked like an outdoor (inside the tent) wedding. They definitely would have needed the tent with today's weather.
I believe this mansion is the Wrigley Mansion, first owned by the Wrigley family from Chicago. The same family that owns the Chicago Cubs and the Gum company.
Another very huge mansion along the lake.
