We enjoyed it so much, we went back for more.

While most folks go to a lake to swim, fish, and canoe, we go to relax and watch the animals and the sunset / sunrise, and take pix.

I could sit by the waters edge and watch osprey fish or chipmunk play all day.

Fall is in the air

We went out to check on Fall Colors, but it’s still a little early for this neck of the woods.  Maybe next week will yield more color.

For now, we were happy to walk through the woods and take in the crisp air… as was this little squirrel we found.

Winter is coming.  Storms are on the horizon, and we have already had our first snow.  We’ll take it.   Our burnt forest can certainly use a good soaking.

We’ll make another trek next week to check on colors again.  It’s all good.

Pizza Oven Final

Finally, you get to see the finale of the Pizza Oven.  It’s been a long hard 6 months of labor… and while it’s still not quite done, here is the final installment of our efforts.

Pizza Oven Final

We still have yet to complete the lower ‘cabinet’ doors, hook up the gas jets, and complete the wiring, lights, etc.  But winter is here, and Christmas is coming… so it’s time to do something else that is more in keeping with the weather… like go cut down a Christmas tree.

This project has been larger than life… and exemplifies our mantra – go big or go home.  It has consumed our year with it’s many facets, but it’s final result is something we can step back from and be pleased with.  Now on to experimenting with it and perfecting great recipes in our new wood fired / gas outdoor oven.
