Boating Neenah Menasha - See the over 237 photos - Photo Gallery -
So sometimes you get so busy you miss a whole story. As I was digging through my photos I came across this folder of photos that I did not post. These photos are from a great day back in the last week of July. It was a little windy and we decided to get out the Bar Pontoon boat. Grab a couple of friends and go on an adventure. With it being windy we decided we would just stay on the rivers to avoid submersing the pontoon's nose under some 3 ft waves. We took off from the Manitowac St boat launch and headed toward Neenah. We went up the river in Menasha and got to Lake Winnebago and ran across to the Neenah channel and made our way in and away from the wind and waves. It is at this point we thought we would indulge in the goodies we brought with us. We brought along a plate of Sushi from Woodmans. Which was very good! We trolled down the river to the Neenah Harbor. This is a fun little run and there are some amazing homes on the water to see. We got up to the harbor and parked. Sat around and eat some sushi and enjoyed the beautiful day. We decided to make a stop at Copper Still Burbon bar across the street from the harbor. As we got off the boat a nice little Donzi pulled up and we helped them tie up quickly. Just so happened this couple was heading to the bourbon bar as well. We got up and got a few drinks and headed out to the patio to get some more sun in. The couple we meet at the dock asked to hang with us and of course, we happily had them join us. Which was a good call! They were both a blast and we all enjoyed talking and got in a lot of laughs. We talked about what to do next. The decision was to head over to check out the new Bare Bones Brewery in Menasha and see what they had to offer. It was a great drive back over to Menasha and up the river past the construction for the new bridge. Which is crazy to see and is going to be cool when the is done. We pulled up to the seawall in Menasha and tied up. Then hung out for a while and had a few drinks on the pontoon bar. Then headed up to Barebones Brewery and was pleasantly surprised to see they have a great outdoor seating area. We went in and found out they are also a distillery and were recommended a Maple whiskey old fashion. Which was delicious! We stuck around and got a chance to meet the manager who was a blast. Overall we really enjoyed the new brewery and hope it finds a successful home in Menasha. We stayed till we started losing light and then headed back to the boat launch. It was a great day out on the water. Wish we had more days like this during this year's boating season. It all seemed to go way too fast.
I hope you enjoy the photos! See all the photos - Photo Gallery I have some map info below the photos for you to check out.
