tuesday, february 5th
when i first got together with mark, my super yooper, i jokingly told friends "he spoke english but it was like living with a foreighner"...you see, i was raised in so. cal. and then spent the last 35 years on the westside of kauai...all the men i knew where "surfers" or "boatbrains" or both and frankly, mark doesn's care one bit for the ocean, surfers or boats. i am a water mama...could spend literally hours in the warm pacific and am happy on a boat either fishing (trolling) or watching the humpback whales. the upper penninsula is sort of isolated like kauai...on the top of wisconcin surrounded by three of the great lakes, superior, michigan and huron and then there are the hundreds or thousands of lakes with in da UP itself not to mention the rivers...so i am still surrounded by water. the big plus is, we can get in the car and drive for days if we chose. both of us love to travel so this is really exciting and have some fun trips planned. we just got back from clear lake, iowa but that is another tale to tell.
