Hootin’ Anni has such a beautiful set of photos this week, Mine will be a capture I made while in a car moving about 60 miles an hour. I am still excited about the capture even if not perfect.
Noooo, that’s not it!. That is another buzzard. We saw so many we began to be afraid they were just waiting for one of us to kick the bucket.
Now this is the one!

Do take a moment to visit:
On a late August afternoon Middle Grandson requested a fishing trip to The Duck Pond. It is in the high 90’s, possibly above 100 degrees in Central Texas. Pond temperatures are warm and the fishes settle toward the bottom at this time of day. Pointing this fact did not deter the ‘need’ to fish. With MG and his BFF we set off for the nearby Duck Pond, a favorite fishing hole for young kids.
Here are a few of the photos I shot while the guys did their thing. Thank goodness there were benches in the shade!
Is this what is known as tailgating….?
These ducklings make me smile.
A few turtles had taken over the dock house.
Red-Eared sliders and one lost slider.
Sweet little ducklings
Our little ducklings…..
One little sparrow.

How can it be Thursday again! Oh, how the days fly by in retirement. As promised, let’s visit a few more fences in Wisconsin. This day we will spend touring some of Madison. First the University of Wisconsin Arboretum and next the Monona Terrace.
Sculpture or fence?
Now to The Old Fashioned Tavern and Restaurant on the ‘square’ around the Capitol building. The area was busy as this night was a free concert on the lawn of the Capitol. The only parking we found in walking distance was a meter that had to be fed ever 27 minutes. But the atmosphere, brews, beer cheese soup and the fried cheese curds made the trip worth it!!!!
Last fence of the day is at the top of the Children’s Museum just off the square.
Have a great week and visit the fences!

A 1938 proposed design by Frank Lloyd Wright that finally reached fruition in 1997. The original designs were followed to a large degree. This design reflected the round shaped of the Wisconsin capitol at the top of the hill.
A curvilinear theme is seen through out the facility.
This is one of Mr. Wright’s design displayed in a small, on sight museum.
Last week’s post was sharing some of the beauty seen in Wisconsin. Let’s continue that journey this week. This will begin in Mauston heading into the area of Wisconsin Dells then onto Madison for a couple of days.
Wildflowers and cornfields are a beautiful way to travel!
Now we are driving along the River Road about 1/4 mile from the Wisconsin River.
We arrived in the town of Wisconsin Dells and found the River Walk with a splendid fence!
Beautiful views of the river and surroundings.
Do love natures rock carvings!
Another view from the walkway.
Lovely flowers every where.
And the perfect place for a late lunch! Yummy food and beautiful views.
Time to move on down the back roads for more beautiful fences…
traffic jams caused by the crossing the road….
Flags at half staff to honor a Wisconsin soldier killed earlier in the week.
A little wild life on the road ….
And one last farm for today!
See you next week in Madison!
