At the 2011 Fall Lake Geneva Wooden Boat Show, Abbey Harbor, WI

This was the recent Big Foot Airport air show at Walworth, WI. Here’s more of the prop and engine.Here’s the front of the bi-plane. And finally, here’s the entire beautiful bi-plane on the grass at Big Foot. And here's an antique sea plane, shortly before taking off for Geneva Lake. src=”” alt=”” title=”P1010879″ width=”490″ height=”367″ class=”aligncenter size-full wp-image-1572″ />

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, near where I hang my winter (and summer) hat, will host on Feb. 2-5 the U.S. National Snow Sculpting Championship, the top snow sculpting competition for U.S. carvers. Entrants come from as far away as Alaska. Who knows — somebody may decide to carve Sarah Palin this year! Talk about frozen beauty. Final judging will take place the morning of Saturday, Feb. 5th, on the frozen lawns of the Riviera Ballroom and boat docks at Lake Geneva’s shore front. The event is held in the midst of Lake Geneva’s annual Winterfest. I never miss it! An early tour of the creative snow sculptures is the perfect appetizer for a big country breakfast.

From this year’s wooden boat show at Geneva Lake’s Abbey Harbor. Wouldn’t you rather lean on a restored Chris-Craft helm from the 50s than a conventional bar?
