I thought that this would be an exciting career. Unfortunately, when I discussed it with the instructor, he said it was a difficult career path for women, that firms did not want to hire someone who might get pregnant in the middle of a project and leave. Hey, I was 12 and certainly not thinking about having babies.
I still love architecture and have been a member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust for many, many years. I've traveled around the country and seen many Wright-designed homes. And I have books. Lots and lots of books with a few pictured here.
At the start of this challenge I mentioned that I have often loaned out a book and then had to buy it again when it wasn't returned.
I had to do that with Wilkie Collins's 'The Woman in White'. Published in 1860, I read the book for the first time one hundred years later. I absolutely loved it. It was the first of the 'sensation novels' and his work out-sold his mentor, Charles Dickens, at the time of publication. During this challenge, I have been re-reading it. I finished it on Monday. Knowing the twists, but not remembering everything (it has been 56 years), has not made it any less enjoyable than the first time I read it. And besides, this edition has all sorts of interesting info in appendices that the paperback I used to own did not.
Whitefish Bay National Forest Scenic Byway is in the Hiawatha National Forest in the Upper Peninsula. If you are visiting Tahquamenon, then you are already here in the right area. Or it would be part of your drive around Lake Superior. Seventeen miles northwest of Whitefish Bay is where the Edmund Fitzgerald sank in 1975.
If you continue on up on Hwy. 123 going north and you are a fan of Steve Hamilton novels, you will arrive in Paradise. Oh, and there is a lighthouse, too. Check out the links.
