North Woods

        outinboat.jpg


 


I'm back from the Northern Woods of Wisconsin!  You know it must be one of your favorite places to be if coming home makes you sad......and I am going to miss early mornings sitting in the oversized adirondack chairs watching the sun slowly make its way up into the morning sky. I'll be posting more pictures over the next several days from our trip. We had beautiful weather up until the day before we left, there was severe weather in the area with 18 tornados that touched down through out the state, several small towns were hit and one town in particular, Staughton was destroyed. Hard to believe something that beautiful and serene can be destroyed in a few moments....... Mother Nature at her finest then at her worst.

The picture above was taken on our first morning up at the lake, it's tradition for Jim to wake just before sunrise and take my lil guy (Jimmy) out in the bay for some early morning fishing. My lil guy says it's the best time to fish....the lake is quiet...the fish are hungrier than he is and the action is plenty. The cabin sits half way up a small ridge with a beautiful view of the lake through the tall pines, this particular morning the lake water was warmer then the air so it gave off an early fog and this is the view from my window watching my two favorite men do what they love to do the most.........fish!!!!!! sitting side by side, just the two of them, and I get to do what I love best.....watching them enjoy the simple pleasure of just being together.

I don't mind not being a morning participant.....my time alone on the lake with Big Jim is always the evening, 3 glorious hours every night just Kim and Jim, a beautiful sunset, and a stringer full of fish.......there is something to say about the simple things, that is for sure!

I'm soooo jealous!  Brings back too many fond memories of the northern lower peninsula of Michigan for me.  Just you, friends/family, and nature.  Can't beat it!  Hugs, Sheila

Beautiful! I love to fish & I love WI! I love the huge pine trees...ahhh the smell! One of my best friends from college lives just north of Madison so I was checking out where that recent tornado was! Too close for comfort!

So beautiful! It takes me back to when I was a small child and my Uncle Bing would take us out in his boat to catch whatever we happened to hook. Usually I would catch a catfish, which my Uncle would release back into to bay. But we had the greatest time of our young lives! All of my favorite Aunts and Uncles are all gone now, but I do miss them so much!
Thank you so much for taking me down memory lane.   Rhonda
