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.
Today I headed out to go snowshoeing in Neshota Park Denmark Wisconsin. The park is excellent in all seasons but the draw of it being only one of two parks in Brown County that is close to my house and I can snowshoe makes it my first stop. Continue Reading →

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.
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.
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…
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.
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 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.
One of my favorite spots along the Green Bay water shoreline to sit and think. The gentle lapping of the waves against the rocky shoreline and thick cover of the trees make it a natural choice to balance your inner thoughts.

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.

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.
Location: If you want to see some additional pictures and or need the location read this post.

Greetings! Hope I find you well. Today, was an interesting day for me. I got a chance to drag my husband out to Toft Point for an afternoon hike. A break from the normal and sometimes boring walking trails that I walk. Truth be told; right now there is not a whole lot going on where I walk. I’m rather bored with the day to day walks.
