Sheboygan, Wisconsin My Home Town

No Truer Words ever Spoken.

 On my trip to Wisconsin at the beginning of this month, I was able to look at my hometown with
fresh eyes and a renewed spirit.  After spending five days with my mom and brother, I took off on
my own in  my rental car and headed south to Sheboygan...  Lots of changes there, and all for the
good, but for the most part, many areas looked and felt exactly the same as it did when I was a little girl.

The new hotel on Lake Michigan

I was so lucky that day as the weather and sky were so beautiful.

The Riverfront has shown the most improvement.  This used to be just a huge pile of coal...Now
it looks so beautiful with lots of shops and a grand hotel modelled after the Hotel Del Coronado near San Diego.

New condos now are a part of the River landscape...Before it was just a weed and debris filled eyesore.

The Sheboygan River merges with Lake Michigan and it is in this area that the city shines...

Who says “you can’t go home again”...

The old band shell in Shooting Park

 My hometown
is bright with promise and prosperity while still retaining much
of its original charm and appeal.   

I didn’t feel a sense of sadness but instead was filled with
joy at what my hometown has become.
