I’m not sure about you, but I know for me I have noticed that life seems off balance. My husband and I spend much of our time apart, due to our winter hobbies and work. We dedicate one weekend day a month together to reconnect. The pictures included in this posting are from our Sunday drive in early March to Oconto County, Wisconsin.
Only a few days before Christmas and I have everything set and ready. All the gifts are wrapped and food has been purchased. Now it is time for some winter bliss. A drive from Green Bay to Kewaunee, Wisconsin and maybe even to Algoma is what I have in store.
Copper Culture State Park
This weekend my husband and I took a Saturday fall drive through Oconto and Marinette Counties, visiting new sites and revisiting a few old ones that I had been to. Copper Culture State Park was one of our stops.
Belgian Brick by Brick
As part of my heritage, I have found great pleasure in asking questions and seeking properties that still house some of the first settlers homes. I was on my way to Sugar Creek last week and decided to reshoot this old Belgian brick home and outbuilding.

Maribel Hotel Hell
What is called by many as Maribel Hotel Hell is located on the same street as the Maribel Caves on County Road R in Maribel, WI. The hotel remains are located on private property, so viewing them from the road is a must.
Kewaunee Wisconsin Lighthouse
Heading along the lakeshore on Highway 42, which runs north/south through Kewaunee you can’t miss the Kewaunee Wisconsin lighthouse. Off the highway, it is a short drive down Ellis Street.
Numerous people do not know that Green Bay has lighthouses or that it has lighthouse ruins. See all the photos I took this summer on the water.
Icy Shores of Lake Michigan
Winter in Wisconsin can be brutal. Right now, especially. We are experiencing negative wind chills along the icy shores of lake Michigan. Which, is simply just starting to feel like the norm for me.
