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.

Spent the weekend exploring some of Jefferson County, Wisconsin as I have for the past 3 years. My husband enjoys attending the Spyder Rendezvous in Johnson Creek and I selectively attend certain portions and catch up with friends from the event. The rest of the time, I am out exploring the area. Here is what I did…
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.
Happy as a Clam at Sugar Creek
Last Thursday afternoon I got a text from my husband asking if I had plans for the night. He was asked to go walleye fishing after work. I replied, nope. No plans, but go I’ll make some now. It was a very warm day and we had an extreme amount of rain earlier in the week, so I knew the creeks would be running. Late in the day makes a wonderful time to play in the water happy as a clam with a tripod and camera.

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 plantlife 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 it’s 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.
Good Morning Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin
Spent Saturday getting my fill of three counties. What a day! Just got done uploading pics from the camera. Pictured is the Sturgeon Bay Lighthouse in Door County. Good Morning Sturgeon Bay Wisconsin I could wake up for a sunrise like this every morning.
Wequiock Falls Green Bay Froze over – the falls are located in a small county park just off the highway in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
They are the perfect, short stop off to stretch your legs after a heavy rain. The water flows extra heavy, then, More often than not during the summer months, you will find a slow trickle or a dry bed.
In the winter, nothing short of amazing. As the weather temperatures change, so do the falls. Each week brings a new sight for the senses.
Ice Formation Photography
Spent the day on the ice with my husband. The plan was to visit Sherwood Point Lighthouse and partake in some ice formation photography. The avid fisherman that he is, begs me monthly to go out with him ice fishing weekly. I have ventured out with him, selectively.
