BLack River Falls


We traveled to my hometown last weekend in the wilds of Wisconsin. It sure looks better through wizened eyes. Now, I appreciate the rural beauty: rolling hills awash with wildflowers, far-away corn tassels dotting the land like a Monet painting, curious farm animals, and fruit ripe for the picking. Space, and the smell of pine.

The red dot above is the sun. Lately, it has resembled the red planet at sunset. Surreal, and almost has hard to breathe as Mars! 



Castle Mound State Park


The Jackson County Fair.

We laughed at the romantic way the announcers described a cow's udders! It reminded us of the comedy Best in Show.


Cain's Orchard in Hixton, Wisconsin. Our favorite blueberry patch.

Turquoise

Turquoise is as ubiquitous to the Florida Keys as a Whiskey and Soda was to Ernest Hemingway. But then again, he also liked a good Daiquiri, Martini, Gin and Tonic, and Campari and Absinthe. Yum!

I've always loved the aquatic color. It reminds me of beautiful things: Tiffany bags filled with sparkle, Coastal living, mineral Hot Springs, peacock feathers, shallow waters teeming with life, and a stone with the curious moniker: Turquoise! 

 

It's all green. Follow my eyes...

Eight Birds and a Howler Monkey: Part One


If I was a bird I'd be a crow: social, sassy, and super smart, with strong black wings to shoot me to the heavens. I wouldn't have the charm, charisma and vocal cords that humans want to cage-up and coo at like their living room is a private zoo. Poo I say!

I like my birds wild. 

Here's a sample of beautiful Costa Rica birds...









I bid you farewell with an old-fashioned mooning.

Sailing Key West


The vast blue. 
The freedom of a wide-open, infinite sky, towering sails buffeting a warm breeze...and booze - lots of it. 

Everybody chases sunset in Key West. Everybody serves sunset with a spiritual chaser. 

Follow our restless souls...







Don't forget to look up between savory cheese skewer nibbles and sparkling wine sips. 


Don't forget to toast sunset! It's a spiritual experience with or without booze.







A Southernmost sunset.

Duluth: July 4th Edition



The iconic Lift Bridge.

The most surprising aspect of our holiday in Duluth, Minnesota,(we're still up North) is the temperture. 90! Uff da Lutefisk. I love it. There's usually a brisk wind haunting the Northshore of Lake Superior, no matter what month you visit - not this weekend. 

We've been walking, biking and boating high and low in search of the frigid North and can't find anything remotely cold. We have found millions of coral-colored pebbles and agates, infinite fresh water, and the best fireworks in the midwest. We're still having fun. See for yourself...



Pigpen eats.







Picnic fail.


Pink pebbles at Iona Beach.





We both have our own poses at Split Rock.



The Rose Gardens.


This chipmunk found a peanut butter cup.






I hope you had a sparkling holiday!
