r & r

just some snaps i took of us up north...these are from my digi-cam...i took loads more from my 35mm cam & i just put several rolls of film to be developed at the local walmart...i was afraid to use my digi-cam because then i'd use up all my space on the chip & without computer to download the snaps...well, i fell back on my trusty ol' canon! we stayed at wicked cute cottage across the street from lake michigan in a quiet little hamlet called, bailey's harbor, in the part of cheeseland known as door county... it's a pennisula sprinkled with quaint little farming, fishing & boating communities... when we were there, i kept seeing all these monarch butterflies EVERYWHERE! it was amazing to see them flitting about in & around flowers, the sky, trees...the collage of snaps above is some of main street bailey's harbor, except for the center & middle right snaps, they are from another town called egg harbor. here we are at the town marina at sunset...while joe was drooling over the BOATS, i was drooling over the incredible SUNSET... which inspired me to paint this sunset scene i call, bailey on the rocks at dusk...i just loved the way the light hit the rocks.
