Revisited: Schluter Park

Goodness, how the time has flown! The last few months have been a bit hectic for me. In May, I had a medical issue that was causing some pretty intense pain. After two different trips to Urgent Care (a week apart) and a trip to my primary doctor, I wound up at the ER and…

Samuel Myers Park

Our third park of the day on March 11th was Samuel Myers Park in Racine. Also known as Sam Myers Park or just Myers Park (or the super formal Samuel P Myers Park), this spot along Lake Michigan was an unexpected stop for us. We had just been driving around, heading lazily toward home from…

A Hop, Skip, & a Swing Away

A short walk from Kadish Park is Swing Park, one of Milwaukee’s more offbeat parks. However, it’s not a particularly scenic park, so I don’t have a lot of photos of the park itself. I do have a few from the walk, though, so here we go! To get from Kadish Park to Swing Park,…

The Capitol (Madison)

I’ve been under the weather since last weekend. I had a cold that zapped every ounce of energy (and what little give-a-damn I had) right out of me. On top of that, I burned six of my fingers on a waffle iron Saturday morning as I was preparing to celebrate National Ice Cream For Breakfast…

Cherokee Marsh (North Unit)

My first adventure was completely unplanned. It was New Year’s Eve and I was staying at my parents’ house in Madison. I sat down at the computer for a second before deciding that I just needed to get out. I didn’t know (or care) where, but in that moment, I simply could not fathom staying…
