It was a whirlwind trip to Bayfield, WI on the shore of beautiful Lake Superior. A quick overnighter for Dave and I and of course the two pooches. The weather was spectacular and the leaves even more spectacular!
We found a garage sale out in the country and parked the car to walk down their drive-way.
We passed a pile of logs and this stand of white birch trees reaching towards the autumn blue sky.
Then, right at the end of their drive, almost covered by a tangle of brush I spotted this little pyramid of stones on a tree stump. Balanced so artistically, the stones are typical of what you'd see along the shores of the lake worn smooth by water lapping over them for countless years.
I didn't place that red leaf there.... I swear to you on a stack of rocks! That is just the way everything looked so perfectly posed in nature. I am so glad I took this photo.
It speaks to me of the magic and the people of this beautiful area in Northern WI. There is an energy here. You see and feel it everywhere you look..... and in places you might not think to look.
Most of the rest of the day was spent lounging at the Seagull Motel and taking the dogs for walks along the bike trails next to the lake.
We ended the day on the little deck outside our motel room watching the sunset and drinking "Fat Squirrel Ale" brewed in New Glarus, WI.
Oh...... and the icing on the cake...... Dave spotted a beautiful 100% wool brown tweed with little red flecks in it Pendleton SKIRT at that garage sale. He noticed it in a box of clothing that was ...... are you ready?......... 10 cents each!
I love autumn!
