On a recent motorcycle ride I went past this property, and because I love old, abandoned structures, it caught my eye, and I decided that I was going to return, so, I did. This was the Dwight Correctional Center, located just west of Dwight, Illinois. It was the state’s only Level One maximum-security adult female facility. It was opened in 1930 and closed in 2013. The buildings are beautiful, in a sad way, and I will return to further explore this 160 acre location.
Spent a beautiful afternoon in South Haven, Michigan. The day was gorgeous, and very windy. For the para surfers: a perfect day!
I would not call the Illinois River picturesque, however, with a little help from the sun and some clouds, it dresses up nicely!
This post could also be called, “variations on a theme.” I got out by 5:00 am and enjoyed chasing the sunrise along the shore. The ocean waves were singing, the sky was just dancing… a beautiful start to the day…
I have so enjoyed spending some time on Long Island visiting my parents. Whenever I come back home I always take a walk in Eisenhower Park and visit the Veterans Memorial. This beautiful memorial serves as a tribute to the heroes of Nassau County. I also always go to Jones Beach. That will be the next post.
A beautiful, if stormy, start to the day.
Took a stroll down Milwaukee Ave. in Logan Square, Chicago with my oldest grandson. This is what we saw. Thanks for stopping by!
The first three images were taken from my front porch, and just a 2 minute ride from my home. The sky, light and clouds were just spectacular. The rest are from a ride today on my new Yamaha Tracer 900. Have a great weekend everyone!
The ‘nook is short for my home town, Minooka, Illinois. We ended Monday night with a rainbow and beautiful sunset – both taken from my front porch. The cactus flower is in the garden in front of our house. The sunrise is just a 2 minute walk from my home. What does the beauty around your home look like?
…Post COVID-19 Ride. My wife and I tested positive for COVID-19 on April 26. I am happy to report that we are both doing fine! We never had any cough or breathing issues. It was so good to get out today! I hope to get back to more motorcycle riding and photography now that we have recovered. Stay safe and healthy everyone!
