    1. Shiju, thank you. Sometimes we see Canadian Geese in the bogs or deer and fox. In the fall, we purchased bags of dried cranberries which are a delicious afternoon snack. We are lucky to live nearby.

    1. Sometimes they water the bog. This year I didn't see them water the cranberries at all. I guess nature was kind to the berries.

    1. It is a Halloween decoration. They don't lite the stove yet too warm.

    1. Tom, Cranberry Festival is the first Saturday of October in Stone Lake, Wisconsin. You can actually take a tour of the Cranberry Bogs which my husband and I did. Very interesting.

    1. The first picture is one of those views where you can just look forever. I call it elbow room. Agree with you whole heartedly.

  6. I just purchased Wisconsin cranberries. I have never seen a cranberry blog in person, but I love to eat them in cranberry sauce.

    1. You are probably eating some berries from Stone Lake. Aren't they tasty?

  7. The whole cranberry bog thing seems very exotic to me. Nothing remotely like it here in Oklahoma. Of course we have competitive fish noodling.

    1. Explain please what fish noodling is? Now that sounds exotic to me. LOL! We fish up North too for musky, walleye, crappie, bass, bluegills etc.

  9. Carol, I find driving by the cranberry bog is delightful! I look for the sunrise or the sunset. Field always appears different.

  11. Lovely photos of the bog. Years ago I went on a tour of Ocean Spray and they showed us around their bogs.

    1. If you live nearby put seeing the bog on your "bucket list." My husband and I did take a tour many years ago. It was interesting. Now we just purchase dried cranberries to snack on. Yummy!

    1. The folks at Trailways decorate for Halloween inside and outside. The head startled me the first time I saw it. But then they had a flying dolphin until the material popped. Fun couple! The owners just retired.

  16. We don't have fresh cranberries here so I buy dried cranberries to eat with my oats and sometimes as snack.
