THE YEAR 2020 BEGINS
PLEASE NOTE THAT 2020 HAS BEEN A VERY BORING YEAR HENCE, HERE
ARE SOME BORING PHOTOS TAKEN DURING THE YEAR
Jan 1 2020 begins with little to no snow on the ground as
you can see in the two photos below there is also no ice in the
Jan 9th and 11th shows ice formation on our neighbors tree
and rough shrubbery beside Kathy. This happens when we have a
North Blow with freezing temperature that produces waves that create spray in the air that
lands on shore and freezes on the shore vegetation.

her right on Jan 20 show a north view with more ice formation.

near Arkona. Feb 24th Our
Amaryllis shows itself in full bloom.
April 26 Kathy has made her own sign to thank the
Front Line Workers during the Covid 19 Pandemic. In May we
visited the Mandaumin Woods Nature Reserve. After our walk through
the woods we found our car with a dead battery, and since it was
on Good Friday fortunately CAA came to our rescue. But,
unfortunately because of Covid we could not get ride with the
driver so here we were stranded in the woods, far from home. Thank
God with our cellphone we were able to get a taxi driver to come
to our rescue. An expensive taxi ride followed by a big tip.
June 6th was a good day for a bike ride under the bridge.
Upon returning we found some nice pansies on our back patio table.
We later found out they were a gift from our good friends John
June provided us with a few beautiful sunsets and July was a good
time to relax on Aleta's Perch
