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.

Answering Questions on ATV & UTVing

I get questions via private Facebook inbox at times on all subjects on this site.  From garden related questions to a location that I have shared.  Sorry, I can’t answer every question due to time, but do take requests and questions under advisement. Even, if I do not reply right away, I’m reading them; promise.

Climb the tall tower and you feel like you are on top of the world with a bird’s eye view.

Here is what I did…

Happy as a Clam

Sugar Creek County Park in Brussels Wisconsin Southern Door County

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 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.

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 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.

Wequiock Falls Green Bay Froze Over

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.
