Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island Lighthouse Green Bay Wisconsin Great Lakes

Grassy Island Lighthouse Range Green Bay

Grassy Island lighthouse range used to be north of Green Bay, Wisconsin.  The range was relocated by the Coast Guard Station in Green Bay, next to the Yacht Club grounds.

The grounds are off limits to the public but the public boat launch is right next door.  Excellent view of the lighthouse, Leo Frigo Bridge and sometimes even freighters coming in at sunset can be seen from this location.

This print of the Grassy Island lighthouse range Green Bay was taken at sunset from the water.   The print has a soft pastel glow to the sky and breakwall of the Yacht club along with a few boats can be seen in the background.

The print would make an excellent addition to any lighthouse lover’s collection.

VIDEO Bairds Creek Green Bay Early Spring

Bairds Creek Green Bay in early spring.  Early spring; the snow has melted and the creek is running fast. The rebirth of the year.  All the plant life and animals are waking up from their winter’s nap.

The creek flowing is one of the seasons first promises that spring is truly on its way.  Let my path walking and hiking adventures for the season officially commence.  Bringing the promise that plenty of nature will be caught on camera this year.  The excitement awaits.

Enjoy this short video.  I am not an excellent videographer. Matter of fact, my teen told me I have much to learn and practice.  No plans on breaking out into the video business. Thinking we are all safe.  I enjoy sharing little pieces and parts of what I see.  Even if I stink at it.  I’m sharing.  I shall take the free advice given by my teen and build from it.  Maybe, I shall get better.

White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin

Today’s topic is going to be a little different.  Something I normally wouldn’t write about, nor would I endorse.  And, SOME may even call me a little crazy for exploring; The White Star Psychic Church Brussels Wisconsin. But life is about experiences. Sometimes, walking in someone else’s shoes helps to understand and relate to someone else. We need this in life.  Who knows, you may even gain knowledge, understanding, peace and even comfort in an unlikely place.  Like this church has done for me.

St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin

St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin - Rosemary Kennedy was one of their residents. The St. Coletta Institute for Backward Youth in Jefferson Wisconsin most certainly has left an impact on my heart. They cared for children and adults that couldn't do it for themselves in a world looked upon them differently back in the day.

One thing I absolutely love about traveling is that it provides me with a constant source of education.  Over the weekend, I attended The 4th Annual Spyder Rendezvous in Johnson Creek, Wisconsin with my husband.  Heavy rain prevented me from riding with the group on Friday.  I admit it, I’m a wimp and my dry car provided a comfortable alternative for the day’s travels. I spent some time exploring St Coletta Jefferson Wisconsin.
