By the Bay…

Ah, home! After 5 weeks up north I arrived at Casa de Artisan on Thursday evening & have thoroughly enjoyed 4 days at home with not much planned. When I trekked northward 5 weeks ago, it was in anticipation of a rather intense crunch time on my current project & I anticipated that at least one day each weekend would be at the office. As the month progressed, the project continued to change & I only ended up working 1 of the 4 weekends that I was up there. So, with the other weekends I made the most of my time in northeastern Wisconsin – more often than not, I ended up along the shore of the bay, Green Bay. After “surviving” last winter up along the bay, it was so nice to enjoy it in better weather. Whether I was in “full tourist” mode as I trekked to Door County (twice) or just had my knitting, a book & a cool beverage to go sit along the shore, I made sure to have my camera in hand to capture scenes of the beautiful bay.
