From humble beginnings selling cherries on the family picnic table, to their modern facility, Bea’s has been creating delicious jams, jellies, pickles, pies and other tasty treats for over 50 years. We top off our day with a traditional Fish Boil Dinner. It all starts with a blazing bonfire under a kettle of salted water. People circle around to warm themselves and take in the crisp smell. When the temperature is just right and the crackle of the fire is just loud enough, the boil master adds a basket of potatoes and onions to the kettle. A few crackles later, the mild whitefish steaks, fresh from Lake Michigan, are delicately lowered in. At just the right moment, kerosene is tossed into the fire, exciting the blaze and causing the water to boil over, dramatically carrying off the fish oil that has collected on top. The fish are pulled out and covered with a generous drizzling of butter. Ladies and gentlemen, dinner is

served. Holiday Inn - Manitowoc, WI (B, D)

DAY 3 There is sumptuous cuisine and spectacular entertainment at The Fireside Theater where an incredible lunch is followed by a professional theater performance of The Buddy Holly Story. We return home early this evening. (B, L)
