The top picture is from an all too brief camping trip with some friends in central Wisconsin. This is the Fox River. Every morning I was awakened by the rather loud call of Whooping Cranes. But I could never get close enough to photograph them. The only picture I took of them flying away didn't even capture them in the shot!
So I sketched one on some fabric with my new markers -- more about the markers below.
We spent a lot of time hiking around the area -- the campground where we stayed had some wonderful footpaths skirting the marshes (where I could hear those cranes whooping it up).
I don't know what these wildflowers are, but I like them.
Of course we brought the dogs -- Scout is just too cool.
And Rosie was happy.
I took my daughter to visit my father in California. This was her first time at the beach since she was a toddler. I could hardly get her out of the waves -- and she felt the same about the pool.
There were tons of pelicans flying about -- but of course never when I had my camera out. Here are my new markers -- they were half price, so I snuck them in with the school supplies --- shhhh....
There is no brown marker in the package, so I used orange and purple.
We visited the Museum of Making Music (here). And this is DD playing guitar under a picture of three of my four favorite musicians -- this iconic photo was taken by Henry Diltz before Neil Young joined the band. I have lots more photos from the museum -- I'll probably use them in future projects.
