Yeasty Photo Safari: Marshall Island

There is a tiny island in the lake at North Park, a county park near us. I had never set foot on it till last wekeend, and decided it was worth more than one visit. This is a long shot of the island (where the pines are).  On the left you can see a small wooden walkway and on the right, a purple martin birdhouse.

The island's walkway; one of the many benches where you can fish. 

I asked a nice fisherman if I could take a photo of his bobbin case.

Birdhouses have been placed on the island to encourage wildlife.

A sign letting you know you have arrived.

These burning bushes reach out into North Park Lake, where Marshall Island sits.

Creativity Tip No. 42

Ah, Cider

I am not a huge fan of apples. I think it comes from all those lunches in high school when we tried to eat only an apple so we could lose weight. A lot of pressure to put on a fruit.

But at the grocery store today I saw gallons of apple cider and thought that it was time to make some. Since apple cider is much sweeter than  plain old apples, it suits me better.Especially the cinnamon stick used for garnish.

Here is an excellent recipe for cider from Emeril. Something to warm you up on the cold nights ahead!
