The Trip

October 14th, 2011

This movie has been entertaining me for the past few days. I watched it on Netflix and now I keep watching my favorite scenes over again on You Tube. I have no idea who these two guys are, but they crack me up.

Leaping, vaulting over dry stone walls with a scabbard… dead look in my eyes cause I’ve seen so many horrors….

2011 Butterfly Collection

October 12th, 2011

It was a tough year on gardens this year in my part of the country. A month long heatwave caused a lot of gardeners to lose heart. I managed to keep my plants alive, but my overall harvest was significantly diminished. I am still getting tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and all the herbs I can stand and they are delicious.

Throughout the season I photographed any butterfly that would stay still long enough to let me snap a few photos. Here’s a few of them…

Favorite Door County Photos

October 12th, 2011

All of my favorite photos from this trip except for the above picture, were taken in the town of Ephraim, Wisconsin located on the “Green Bay” side of Door County.  Ephraim snuggles right up to shoreline.  It’s cozy downtown features my favorite of all the Door County beaches we visited.  It was soft and sandy (as opposed to some of the rocky beaches on the peninsula) perfect for swimming and within walking distance of some great little shops including one fantastic ice cream shop.

I think the reason I like these photos the best is because I got to take them alone.  I left the boys and the CD on the beach and wandered off downtown snapping pictures to my heart’s content.

Then I returned to the fam and got a few of Jack and Drew working on a sand castle.

It was a good day.
