Dusk on Durphee Lake

So far Leta has caught four fish, and Marlo has almost dumped the bait into the lake twice that number.

Insatiable

A water dog dressed in a princess costume? You don’t say.

Their turf

Shortly after encountering these guys Marlo whispered to me, “Those are the ugliest birds I’ve ever seen.” As if she didn’t want to hurt their feelings.

In Newport Bay

A pleasantly drama-free wildlife encounter. Thanks for the wink and head nod, Universe.

Essex

A beauty far different from that which I find at home.

Tubular

Who knew that my kids would be so adventurous in Wisconsin of all places?

Pioneer Day

In celebration of the fact that today you cannot buy liquor in the state of Utah.

Animal crossing

For old time’s sake: DUCKSTHS! SO MANY DUCKSTHS!

ISO 6400

The smell of the lake and bodies covered in DEET.

Sunset fishing

Making blue, purple, red and orange memories. With worms.
