OK, so it’s not the Rose Festival Parade or the Macy’s Parade, but we know how to have parades in Door County. My boss at Door County North (where I work in the Visitor Center) wanted to advertise the things the Ellison Bay Beautification Project has been doing in downtown Ellison Bay, particularly the new butterfly mural on one of the buildings. So she organized a butterfly float for the Fall Fest Parade in Sister Bay this last weekend and someone caught it on video. My boss, Mickie, is the leading butterfly… Continue reading
Because the fall colors have been so glorious, I was carrying my camera with me to work and to church in case I should see something I had to shoot. Last Sunday, I was driving home from church with my camera on the front seat beside me. I suddenly had to step on the brake and the camera fell off the seat. The next picture I tried to take, the lens wouldn’t focus. 🙁 I have seen all sorts of things since that I would have loved to photograph and share with you, but I can’t. Therefore, I haven’t written.

I’m not exactly sure which season I like best, but right at the moment, fall is my favorite. People come to the peninsula in October to observe the autumn colors.

She said she would like me to post them on my blog so she could see them. I also took a few pictures last night when Mark and I had a bonfire in our back yard with some more of the tree limbs and things we’ve been trying to get rid of this summer. Continue reading
Today I finally had a chance to read my emails and saw that I had received so many condolences from you all that I can’t respond to them individually. But I do want you to know that your thoughts and prayers mean a great deal to me. I am fortunate in the many friends I have!
We left Bismark around 9:00 this morning and arrived in Ellison Bay around 10:00 tonight. It’s been a long, strange day. Continue reading
Montana is a long state! I think we left Missoula at about 9:15 MT this morning, and we didn’t get to the eastern border until 6:00 this evening. Somewhere in North Dakota, we crossed into the Central time zone to arrive at our hotel around 9:30 CT. Of course, we made a few stops along the route.
