corner view:: water


This weeks corner view is :: water. With two boys we always seem drawn to water, and a few of our favorite parks are at the top of the list because of their large smooth lakes. Last weekend we decided to take the car ferry to our favorite state park. The boys couldn't believe we hadn't taken them on this before - ahem. During tourist season the wait can be long (for a 7 minute ferry ride), but going off season meant we got on right away. The boys loved driving on, getting out and watching the water go by.




Of course once we crossed, the highway to the state park was closed due to construction, so we skipped it and took a scenic drive through amazing fall colors back home instead.

In looking back at some photos the other day, I saw our pictures from the lake this summer, and the boys at the same spot playing 2 years ago.

Memory and time are funny things. We often have the "never before" issue.

I love the look back in time. How precious to watch kids grow up. Thanks for sharing the ferry experience with us. Not one I know about.

Joyce said...

I never knew of this park and to think I grew up in Wisc. At least when I visit my niece at college I know to take a few days to explore the area. Thanks. xoxo

I'm in love with ferry boats and water too (but then again, I'm pretty young at heart, let's say ;P)

looks like an amazing place, i love lakes so much!

trinsch said...

ahh, ferry boats, love them! when i was a kid in dk there were so many little ferries. we'd often have to use one. today most of them have been replaced with bridges. i gues it's more practical, but it's also kind of sad.

Jen said...

Very nice photos. I love water--you really captured the tranquility in these.

Cate said...

oh these are so sweet. how lucky to have two such beautiful boys! i can totally identify with the space out. good thing we take a few pictures here and there. funny how fast our brains can erase. have a great week!
