You may not know it but this blog is approaching its fifth anniversary. I started it in February, 2009, thinking that it would be good for me to find and post one decent photo a day. Some of you may have noticed that I am celebrating the approaching anniversary by taking several days off this month. It's not willful. I am just fighting my way through the midwinter blues by being neglectful.
Today's post isn't new to this blog but I've decided to post some of my favorites from the past five years this week. This particular photo of our sailboat Wandering Star anchored Mediterranean style in Mission Creek on Lake Oahe may well be one of those photos that has more meaning and value to me than it does to anyone else. But, to paraphrase a hit song from decades ago, "it's my blog and I'll post if I want to." :-)
Ice still covers lake Oahe, but it won't be long now . . . .
