Winter Wandering

 



About a week ago I had the chance to join Brad in Wisconsin for a work trip. It was nice to be back near where we used to live, and to see some friends. While he went to meetings on Friday I was off on my own and the majority of the world was working, so I took the chance to drive around and explore with my camera. It doesn't matter what season it is - the lake is beautiful.

Most of these photos are from the harbor and beach near Port Washington, but I took a drive along the roads heading up toward Sheboygan too, which is where I saw this rafter of turkeys (I just looked that up - rafter is the technical name for a group of this size - yay, words!), and where these pretty deer crossed my path. I was driving so slowly that two were brave enough to walk in front of my car, but their friends weren't quite so sure. Lucky for me I had my camera in the passenger seat. I don't know about you, but I think those turkeys have a pretty nice view.

Great photos. That's a pretty area. We like to drive along the shore up to Sheboygan, then grab a brat at the Charcoal Inn. And I always love a deserted beach.

Look how close you are to those dear! Love the close ups of them.

And agree, even in winter lakes are beautiful. They are so empty and peaceful. I like visiting them too!
