Canoeing - Platte River, MI


Here's the canoe most people use for the river -- many others use tubes and just float.



Here's a group of "tubers" who just made it down the Platte River, MI.

Northern Michigan Americana

My family takes a picture by this Native American Indian every year. . . he stands guard by a favorite canoeing spot by the Platte River.

Kayaks on the Beach - Lake Michigan

OK, I admit that this is not from Nunda Township or Crystal Lake but is in fact from Northern Michigan where I was on vacation last week. Same with the sunset from the previous post.

Under "the Bean" - CloudGate, Chicago


OK, this is my last Millenium Park photo, for now, at least I think. I will bring more of the local Nunda area to life very soon.
This is what it looks like directly under the Cloud Gate sculpture. Very odd perspective. There is another perspective in an earlier post. . . .

Monarch in the Front Garden


Monarch butterflies fly through our area on their annual migration and there are plenty of milkweed plants for the caterpillars to grow on. They have always been my favorite.

Up, Up in the Air!


These balloons go directly over my house, usually very early in the morning. They are quite lovely. The top edge of the photo is the roof over my back porch. . .

Sunflower Power


Here is another garden picture. Things are looking up!

"The Bean" -- Cloud Gate @ Millenium Park


This is the lovely Cloud Gate sculpture in Chicago's Millenium Park, about 40 minutes from home.
