On Thanksgiving Day we quite literally drove over the river (the Mighty Wisconsin) and through the woods to get to our family gathering.
It was a sunny, warm, sepia-brown sort of a day.
We passed directly through the heart of cranberry country, which makes up much of this central portion of Wisconsin.
Water abounds in the flat marshy areas of cranberry country - in fact, that IS what MAKES it cranberry country.
We passed many a cranberry bog in many a marsh. This is how those bogs look after harvest and waiting for their white overcoat of snow, which should be coming very soon.
Our destination was Cousin Doug's house nestled in the rolling hills of Tomah, Wisconsin.
I wish my camera lens didn't "flatten" the hill. This is Doug's "sugar bush" where he harvests maple syrup come spring.
We gathered around the table - just five of us - with very grateful hearts.
I'm taking the picture.
Fisherhubby, ever the jokester, is pretending to hold my hand at my vacant place.
We filled our plates to overflowing with our version of holiday fare.
We are truly blessed.
For Sundays in My City.
So enjoyed the photos. Glad you had a very happy holiday.
Glad you had a nice Thanksgiving. The food looks delicious!
Beautiful photos. Your part of the country is so beautiful, and that food looks so yummy! Is this a Cornish game hen?
Beautiful country and it looks like you had the most wonderful time!
So beautiful, Keetha! Happy Thanksgiving (every day :-)) I am so grateful to know you and connect with you! (even if I am filled with guilt right now for not visiting last week. It matters to me. A lot).
I could actually feel the warmth in your photos. Reminded me of a recent trip we took, driving through places that looked similar. Love gazing at fields.
Hugs! Vidya. Now am off to catch up on the posts I missed the last two weeks on your blog. :D
Looks like a lovely trip and your Thanksgiving meal looks so yummy! I need to make some good stuffing this week. Hugs, Linda
What a beautiful place you spent your Thanksgiving and that food, yummy!
Beautiful scenery, and that is quite a fest you had.
Yummy! I made homemade cranberry sauce for the first time ever... and I used Wisconsin cranberries!
This post made me dangerously hungry!
You are blessed! I love the reflection on the hood in the first picture.
nice country....and tasty-looking dinner!
great shots! the reflections in the first one are cool :)
Cornish Game Hens! Now why didn't I think of that?! :)
I had no idea cranberry bogs were in Wisconsin. Everytime I see that cranberry commercial with the two men in waders surrounded by cranberries, I always wonder but never know.
The food and company look great. I really missed deviled eggs this year (I had to work this TG, so they were gone before I knew any better.)
Boy that area sure looks familiar!! hehe.
The food looks yummy Keetha and that Greg is a jokester fo sure.
I am freezing over here this morning. I suppose your a warm and balmy 50. Ha!
Looks like a beautiful drive and a lovely dinner!
MMmmm, that looks good. I will be right over!
Lovely photos, Keetha, and a yummy looking meal you all shared. our people are what matter most in the world, aren't they?
Have a wonderful week...:)
So glad you had such a lovely Thanksgiving with your family. Love the shots of cranberry country!
You weren't kidding when you said over the river and through the woods. You Thanksgiving meal looks yummy! I hope you had a wonderful day!
Where are the cheese fields? I though Wisconsin was known for cheese not cranberries.
Love the Cranberry Bogs! I miss driving over the river and through the woods to my In-Laws house BUT I miss them more!!!
What a wonderful drive!! How blessed you are :)
I just had to comment on the game hen... my #2 loves it when he gets his very own 'baby chicken'!
Looks like you had a lovely day!
