Chequamegon Bay no longer has any ice on it. Monday was the only nice day so far this week and the water was incredibly blue.

It has been a while since I've found some nice boots to wear since I [walked the soles off of my last favorite pair]. I ordered some a few weeks ago that arrived this week in a huge box with a long strip of plastic bubble wrap. Charlie made sure it was dead! I think if we are ever attacked by an Anaconda, we will be safe with him here!
 I got these for $15 on sale down from $80. I was happy!

Hard to tell, but those white dots way back in the water are white swans. I forget that swans are actually wild birds, I'm so used to seeing them in man-made parks, zoos, or ponds that it just seems odd to see them in the wild. Even when I saw them on my [Rhine River cruise in Strasbourg, France] they still didn't seem like wild birds.

Finally ... this. Snow. Again. Today.
At least it melted quickly and didn't stick.


  1. Your boots look great - and were a really good buy.

    1. Thank you! I was so excited at the savings!

  2. Charlie's a hoot! It's like a toddler who'd rather play with the box than the toy. It's always more fun! Cool boots, too. But let's hope you can trade them for sandals for a while. :-)

    1. I think I have a pair of croc sandals that I wear here somewhere...
