Dear Hubby and I were off exploring some little lakes in northern Minnesota ~ braving the cold winds (it was only in the 40's) trying to catch our limit of pan fish ...
Nothing yummier than fresh fried bluegills :)
We even said a prayer in the boat ~ out on the lake, by this little church ~
~ while watching this eagle ...
... and trying to keep an eye on this green heron.
Do you see it?
ZOOOOMING IN - How about now?
Here it is ... walking out on the branch for a better photo op ~
We roughed it for a few days in Minnesota ~ it was cold, rainy and windy. I think the sun only came out twice and for about 20 minutes each time.
We decided to take a trip further south to visit our daughter. We made the four hour drive back home, dropped the boat off, did some quick laundry and caught a few hours of sleep and we headed for Indiana.
But ... we didn't get far. About four hours into the trip south, just north of the town of Portage, WI we ended up here:
~ yeppers ... that says Collision Center on the sign.
We had a run in with a deer and our new truck with 2700 miles on it now looks like this:
We weren't hurt; (with the exception of my ear getting slapped really REALLY hard by the seat belt). Dear Hubby's not a happy camper... me either.
Now we wait for repairs.
We never did make it to Indiana ~ sorry Sara :(
but here's a pic of what the weather was by her ~
I don't know ... with our luck maybe it was best that we didn't make it there this time around. Just saying.
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
