Who Dat?

Here it was, October 8th, and the temperature was 74! Herbie is always ill-prepared. As for Moi, I sported shorts and a tank top. It was pure magic to go from the summer-like beach to the autumn woods in less than 5 minutes.

The hiking trails are to die for, and the aroma? Wish I could bottle it and breathe it in everyday.

One happy camper...

We watched the Packer game outside with a roaring campfire. Oops! I guess in all the excitement the fire wasn't exactly roaring, but there was a fire, nonetheless.

On our last night at the campground, we were I was determined to find the owl that kept us awake every night. I just love owls, don't you? They can really put away a Tootsie Pop. I grabbed a flashlight and ran into the woods. Alone. Herbie was comfortable sitting by the fire and couldn't be bothered. So there I was in the middle of the forest, when my flashlight died! Thank God I found my way out. When I got back to our campsite, I begged Herbie to go back with me, with flashlights that worked. He eventually succumbed to the nagging. Dang those crispy leaves! We made such a racket in the woods that the owl fled the scene.

This weekend it's our 30th anniversary! My brother sent me this link about a band of albino deer in northern Wisconsin, and I fell totally in love with them. So on the spur of the moment I planned a getaway. I found a beautiful cabin up there with a wood burning fireplace (gotta have a fireplace, just got to!) The owner gave me some tips as to where we could find the white deer. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures to post later.
