Weekend Update/Spring Edition


Our first weekend of Spring and it did not disappoint.  We started out on Friday for a ride into the country.
My dearest one had a root canal scheduled for Saturday morning, so we though we'd take off on Friday, not knowing how he'd feel after the procedure. These photos were taken over the whole weekend. Fortunately, all went well with my husband,  he just needed to decompress from the anxiety that seems to be involved in any dental procedure. It is a mental health thing for us to hop in the car and drive, listening to great music, or in silence with our thoughts.  It is rejuvenating to be out together, with no destination just the joy of the journey.  An old barn holds such charm, even in it's waning days.
 A old courthouse, set against a clear blue sky frosted with wispy clouds.
 Up in Wisconsin at Lake Geneva, fishermen were still on the ice.
 The gray skies made it look more like winter than spring.
Sunday after visiting with our baby grand, (she can do somersaults!) we took the scenic way home, up Lake Shore Drive to Sheridan Road along Lake Michigan.
Dear old girl never ever lets us down.  Beautiful in every season, in all kinds of weather.  Our all time favorite drive.  Now we head for home.
 On the campus of Northwestern University.  I don't know what this building is, but it looks like something out of Downton Abbey.
 If you can peek behind the buildings you'll see the Grosse Point Lighthouse.
 The sky on fire at sunset,
almost home.

 " Nature never did betray the heart that loved her." William Wordsworth

Thanks so much for your kind comments and for stopping by.  Enjoy this beautiful day.

I loved tagging along with you on your weekend journey. Thank you for letting me see your lovely country views and buildings. I'll be tagging along with you on your next trip. I promise I'll stay in the back seat, quiet as a mouse.

Summersaults . . . what fun to see in person instead of FaceTime!

Your ride sounds relaxing and enjoyable . . . I enjoyed seeing your pictures.(I liked Barbara's comment above.)
Showing scenic places and sights is a great idea . . .

Our baby great grand has her first birthday in a few weeks! How does time fly by so fast!
