A glimpse through the gate gives a hint of what's in store.
A profusion of mums in all different colors.
The cypress knees look like a scene from a Tolkien novel.
The water is calm and lovely.
Some trees are bare but some color remains.
Even the spillway is a work of art.
The arched bridge is also a work of art.
There were dozens of places one could have stopped and just sat, drinking in the color and the beauty of this magnificent and peaceful place. We are indeed fortunate to have access to this wonderful place in all seasons.
Every visit to the estate brings the question of where we will have lunch. In spite of the really great places to eat, we always wind up at the same location every time. Where is that? The Dairy Bar, of course. Fresh ice cream made on the grounds. It hardly gets any better than that.
Just a note about football and the Green Bay Packers. They remain undefeated although Sunday's game gave us a bit of a fright. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw touchdown passes to four different receivers and completed 21 of 26 passes during the game. Right now there is not a better quarterback in the NFL. We have nearly forgotten the previous Packer quarterback...Brett something or other. [A note to Brett: We're just fine if you go into the Football Hall of Fame with your #4 Viking jersey.]
