This trip is short a couple hundred miles, but a beautiful drive. I snapped this picture for two reasons, I am starting to see more birch, and the lovely lake. We drove by so many lakes.
Here is another one.
Another of the many lakes, why shoot it? because it was so pretty, all lakes along here are nice.
The roads were good and mostly lined with wild flowers. Some folks say a drive like this is boring. I never see enough wild flowers or trees. Of course in the desert I never see enough desert. I just love the drive.
To answer the question from 'Y', about shooting pictures while driving. I very seldom take my eyes off the road. I hold the camera up and balance it against my cheek and point it where I think the shot is and snap. I never look at the display or peep hole. Yeah, I delete a lot of them. hahahahaha! I got Sherry to shoot this church, it just struck a cord. I love the impression it made.
Both sides of the road lined with wild flowers and beautiful pines and cedars.
Sherry caught the Wisconsin sign as we crossed. I had just squeezed this bus thru some narrow city streets, right down main too.
One Wisconsin community had some beautifully kept old houses. Every one had just painted their house and cut their grass, it was neat.
Whoa, we are at Park Falls. Bill, Dar's husband, works here as a super in the paper mill. Bill is a great guy, he even has a Blue New Holland tractor with a loader.
We are in Hines City Park, Park Falls, WI. This is home for a few days. Quick call Dar and tell her we are here.
This is Mel and Sarah, we were about to bust our buttons with these great folks coming to welcome us to Park Falls. (Sarah is really smiling, she is getting married in a few days.)
And there is Dar, with her grand love Syrus! This was all such a joy to us. Syrus and I hit it off he and I like magic and entertained each other. Sy is 7.(Don't you just love that name, Sy!)
Bill didn't get to talk much, but he laughed a lot. It was all so much fun. This was such a joy and thrill for us to finally meet these wonderful folk.
Getting ready to say good night outside the coach, the whole crew minus my love, who was taking the picture.
I just want to say this is one of the things that makes this way of life of ours so rewarding. Our lives are made richer by these folk who talk a little different. Now I know we have an accent, southerners are known for murdering the English language. BUT New Englanders and now folks from upper Wisconsin excite what little hearing I have. I don't understand it all, but I could listen to the different inflections and accents for hours. It will be like Christmas tonight, it will be hard to go to sleep. Our day was GREAT!
