If you’re an animal lover, you will love this post. Really. I just returned from a pilgrimage to the Holy Grail of animal rescue organizations, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, and I’m ready to share some photos with you and maybe restore some of your faith in humanity (I don’t know about you, but every so often I need a dose of that). Located on 3,700 acres in the stunning red rock canyon country of southern Utah and housing more than […]

And they refurbished this old windmill, lying on its side by the barn, that came with their property purchase. They commissioned a new wooden lattice tower […]
Here’s an unusual POV for this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: me having fun at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry in a maze of mirrors. Blogger friends, I’m off to Iceland for one week, and I will catch up with all of your posts when I return.
