Monday Up Close

Thought I would share a few more photos from our summer trip.  These were taken in a small roadside area that is maintained by individuals it appeared.  The park was near Door County, Wisconsin.  Hope this brings some sunshine to another Monday.

Good Fences #77

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.

The Arboretum



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!

Good Fences #76 – Sept. 3, 2015

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. IMGP7038

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!

Good Fences #75 – August 27, 2015

It has been a while since sharing with this meme.  That is in large part due a month long road trip.  Five of the days were spent in the home state of our host, TexWisGirl.  We did Wisconsin.  We at cheese in all sorts of forms including delicious fried curds in a pub across from the capitol building in Madison.  We sampled all sorts of beer.  I put my feet in Lake Michigan.  We visited Door County.  We even drove by The Green Bay Packer Stadium though we are Dallas Cowboy fans.  We fell in love with this beautiful state.

Here are just a few of the fences and scenes from the wonderful state of Wisconsin…. which my husband would not always stop so I could photograph.  Please, excuse blur and splattered bugs!

IMGP6951Cattle on a hill and a bug splatter!

IMGP6960Beautiful, rolling countryside and farms.

IMGP6971More than just cattle in the farmyards!

IMGP6975And a lovely home in one of the small towns we passed through too quickly.

IMGP7032My sweetie did turn around so I could get this shot!

IMGP7031Small park in Durand, WI, along the Lower Chippewa River.

IMGP6994More beautiful farms and crops along Highway 10.

IMGP7007Many places to purchase cheese.

IMGP7026Behind this fence are cranberry marshes along Highway 80 heading for a night in Mauston, WI.

IMGP7036There are local FFA groups studying cranberry science.  They offer tours of the cranberry marshes.

IMGP7037And that is the end of day one.  We had fresh, squeaky curds as well as locally made jerky and sausage sticks for tomorrows travels!  Next up will be the area around the Wisconsin Dells.
