"I bet someone comes to sell us a picture pretty soon" Don determined. And right he was--as usual!
The resulting photo was wonderful. Our paddock and barn (two horses stretched out sleeping) and a little glimpse of our house, the Catfish Corner corner, and the river bottoms that surround us. At the very top of the photo--the mighty Mississippi, which is also the very southernmost part of the wide area of the creek known as Lake Pepin.
The second shot was from the south and shows the area to the north of us--really pretty, too. This is also the view we have that was done during the winter four years ago but this one was from a higher perspective and shows more of the neighborhood.
After the haggling we ended up with both shots and will probably have to submit them to Google Earth--they are way better than what they are showing!
