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.

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.
