Beep, beep: Club attracts attention


HUDSON, Wis. -- A line of eight cars that pulled up to the Bass Lake Rehabilitation District's annual picnic near Hudson, Wis. turned more than a few heads on Saturday.

That's because the vehicles didn't use the road that others had arrived on. These cars came to the party via the lake.

Members of the St. Croix Valley Amphicar Club were honored guests at the summer gathering.
