Dad’s Day Drive

Happy belated Father’s Day to all the dads out there.  In our house it is referred to as Paw Paw’s Day.  No human children around here, just the furry four-legged kind, our wieners.   We decided to take a break from yard work and take a much deserved leisurely drive through the countryside.  Our travels took us from Red Wing over into Wisconsin to Elmwood, Spring Valley, Woodville and Baldwin.   We had lovely weather with bright blue skies and my favorite big poofies were aloft; floating through the sky.

I am not sure what is so fascinating about a cow, but almost every time we see some we stop and chat with them.  A big ‘ol MooOOOOoo always gets their attention and 9 time out of 10 they will come closer to the roadside.  The wieners like to check them out as well as take in all the interesting smells of the country.

We didn’t run into any abandoned properties this round.  We did  see the wonderful rolling hills, green grasses, farm fields, spring streams,  barns, wildlife and we even stumbled upon an Amish community that I didn’t know was there and this close.

It was a great Paw Paw Day.  Back roadin’ with Cyndie and the girls is my all-time favorite pastime.  Life is great.

  1. The Amish women on the porch is one of those rare photos which gives us outsiders a glimpse into their life. I would have been giddy over capturing this scene. Any chance you can tip us off to the location of the Amish you photographed. So many beautiful scenes. What a great Sunday drive.

  2. Happy Paw-Paw day from the furry little girls; we had an adventurous day -as we always do 🙂 Everyday spent with you is a blessing. We are so grateful to have you in our life. Life is good indeed. Beautiful captures of the day and wonderful post.
