The new header image was shot at the Belle Chevre Cheese Shop and Tasting Room in Elkmont, Alabama. The shop was dog friendly and offered sandwiches, goat cheese and hand made fig ice cream.
The shop sits along the Richard Martin Trail. If you start your hike south or north of town you can stop at the tasting room for lunch before heading back to your car.
Warren Dunes State Park on the shore of Lake Michigan. May 8, 2016.
This is a pretty amazing place and well worth the visit if you’re in the area. Be sure to do the full hiking loop for the best experience. We practically had the place to ourselves on our visit.

On Monday, while it was still snowing in Madison, we decided to walk from our neighborhood down to a nearby shopping center. For part of the walk we were shadowed by another adventurous soul.

I ran across this guy trying to climb a palm tree on the University of Florida campus last Saturday. He was actually making a good go of it, but finally had to give up and drop to the ground. It turns out he was trying to retrieve a football and shoe from the branches. His buddy started hurling his remaining shoe to try to dislodge the other two. When we walked by later the tree was empty, so they figured something out.
