Spring is here

Happy Spring! While our local botanical garden is closed (but pictured here), I am seeing people out walking and enjoying the outdoors. In our area the cherry blossoms and magnolias are all open. In my neighborhood the streets are lined with flowing trees luring people out into the fresh air.

Boathouse

Lost Canoe Lake

Driving on the back roads of Northern Wisconsin I found a place to pull over. Following a trail to the water there was this small beach with these canoes. This is an interesting area to explore with hidden areas like this, scenic structures and wonderful small towns.

This is a Duluth-type life saving station that began operations April 1, 1896, serving the Portes des Morts Passage (more commonly called “Death’s Door”) at the entrance to Green Bay. In 1939 a boathouse was added at the end of a 200 foot pier. In 1990 the U.S. Coast Guard abandoned the station and moved the crew […]
