The The Acoustic Cafe is one of just about everyone around here’s favorite places. The Acoustic serves up wonderful sandwiches, soups, and baked goods- their cinnamon rolls are The Bomb. Back in The Before Times they also had a concert or two a week. I always get a little nostalgia buzz when I show upContinue reading “The Acoustic Cafe”

This Just Isn’t Normal
In a normal year snow would have ended my days of bombing dirt roads on a road bike by now. But, it seems even the weather can’t be normal in 2020. The current forecast has a couple of 40 degree days in mid December in it. This is just strange.
Blowing Out The Sunset
The weather around here has been a bit miserable lately, but today marked a wonderful change with temps in the mid 20’s and it was wonderfully crisp and sunny. As is usually the case on days like today I took a spin around town on my bike and as is also usually the case IContinue reading “Blowing Out The Sunset”
We had an absolutely stunning day today and with afternoon temps in the low 50’s there was nothing better than breaking out the road bike and taking it for a spin around town. Some people may balk at the whole #optoutside deal, and yes, obviously, people were using the day after Thanksgiving for outdoor adventuresContinue reading “Opted Outside”
Have I mentioned I live in farm country? Eau Claire’s at the northern end of the Driftless area, which is mostly small small towns and small (by modern Midwestern standards) farms. And lots of rolling hills. This was taken about 10 miles south of town.
Poking Around East Of Town
It was freakishly warm today, temps in the mid 50’s, so I headed out of town on my bike to do a little exploring. First stop was Bullhead Pond, which I’ve been to many time before and is a great hangout. Next I headed for the Eau Claire County Forest, which is just down theContinue reading “Poking Around East Of Town”
Brown Season Continues…
Brown Season can turn into Snow Season any time now. I was going to go on a bike ride today, but it turned out to be one of those damp days in the 30’s where no matter what you do you can’t stay warm and then suddenly you’re over heated, so today’s ride turned intoContinue reading “Brown Season Continues…”
Water Street Bridge
The last photo from my last session of night shots. The Water Street Bridge tends to give my camera fits as, for some reason, it’s hard to get the white balance right and I never think to bring a white sheet of paper along with me to manually set the white balance.
Ooo… I Like This One
I didn’t get much sleep on election night and ended up accidentally falling asleep for a couple hours in the late afternoon on Wednesday. Which meant that when bedtime came around I was wide awake. So, I grabbed my camera and tripod and went out to kill a couple hours taking night shots. Tonight wasContinue reading “Ooo… I Like This One”
Eau Claire River/ Uniroyal Tire
I managed to wander off without my camera this morning, so all a have for you today is a quick cellphone snap of the Eau Claire River. It was an absolutely stunning day today and with temps in the 40’s the bike riding was great. The building in the distance with the smoke stack wasContinue reading “Eau Claire River/ Uniroyal Tire”
