Almost 2 years ago our church family blessed us with a gift certificate to a nearby bed and breakfast. Alas, Joe and I just hadn't been able to fit it into our schedule at a time they also had openings. So this past weekend we were finally able to visit. And it was so nice. It sits surrounded by cornfields and a 5 acre lake (I think it is 5 acres..its large). When I'm at the beach I can totally picture Joe & I living on a sandy beach someday. However, when I am at a place like this I am reminded that I truly am a Midwesterner at hear. Oh, and the food was absolutely phenomenal. We had one of their supper dishes as well as breakfast each morning. Oh bliss...can't wait to return.

|I spend a lot of time photographing the birds. Tons of finches and hummingbirds. There was even an oriole who visited occassionally.|
|Yes, that is a raccoon that decided to come visit and chow down on the leftover bird seed. I was sitting on the porch to our room when he showed up.|
