Summer of Fun – A Photo Journey – Part 1


Hello fellow Summer of Fun participants!  So far, I have had a busy summer but the weather hasn’t been cooperating as much as I would have liked.  It makes it hard to do fun outdoorsy things when its cold or raining, so the kayaks have only been used a couple of times and my bike mileage is not as high as I would like it to be.  But I have managed to find some things to do that qualify under the Summer of Fun tenants, but instead of writing about them, I decided to just post a photo journey of them.  Enjoy!

Dammit, Spock! I’m a Bubbler, not a Drinking Fountain!!

odd

I find a lot of odd things when I am out and about. This random dinner chair was spotted on the Fox River Trail in early May.

Random plaster eagle head. Probably weirder than the chair on the Fox River Trail. Taken on a bike ride near Freedom – same road and ride as the wildflowers above.

Actual song on the radio

Cruisin in the Batmobile and our song comes on.

Found my grandparent's old cottage on a fun ride with Kay and Meg.  We spent many a summer here back in the day.
