so tasty, yummy!!!
The lakes here are really beautiful and the landscapes are so nice, but there is other thing people love here too. Specially because of the hot weather: Ice Cream :P Before going to the farm, Eric decided to stop in this small and adorable town called Alden. There I would be able to see Torch Lake besides tasting a delicious Ice Cream. 

He told me the ice cream here is very creamy, not at all like the Italian I’m used to. Ok, let’s try it. Having an ice cream was a perfect idea since it was really hot. We were getting a bit hungry. It was almost 5pm and we didn’t have lunch, mmm. Better skip lunch and go straight to dinner, but we would start having dessert, haha. So, it was time for Ice Cream!!!! Yummy! We stopped at the “Higgin’s Store”, which among other things, offer their famous ice cream, hehe.

this is a huge ice cream. Notice the nice arm band - haha
By the way I have to say that I saw a lot of liquor stores, wow!!! They were all over the different towns and cities, uffff.

Eric got a huge ice cream. I don’t remember the name of the flavor, but there is no way I will forget its look. It has unusual bright colors – for food at least – green, orange, yellow. Looked a bit radioactive, but tasted very sweet. It was really good. I ordered the smallest one, but it was huge too, OMG!!! The flavor I chose was “Cherry” haha, Well, I was in the Cherry Capital, so it made sense. 

Enjoying our huge ice creams, we took a walk around the sweet town. The streets were so nice and small, with flowers and shields. The Torch Lake was really beautiful and you could see people swimming and sailing there. Downtown of this town reminded me an old town you see at the movies, haha. In one word it was lovely!

Unfortunately we couldn’t stay longer, since we had to go to the farm and I wanted to changed before going out for dinner, hehe. Fashion goes first ;)
