Penny's Favorite Places

Paradise Beach on Lake Superior; Cook County, MN, is the only place in the world to find the Paradise Beach agate. Penny and David spent hours walking the rocky beaches. Penny adored the quiet peaceful spirit of nature with the gentle sounds of sparkling waters lapping the shoreline.


Carver Park Reserve; Victoria, MN, not far from Penny and David's home, was Penny's most frequently visited place to find tranquility and variety in nature. She found something to enjoy in every season here, including the goldenrod in bloom. It was one of the many inspirational changes Penny looked for.


Deephaven Beach; Deephaven, MN, was a favorite surrounded by charming waterfront cottages and wooded hills.


Siesta Key Beach; Sarasota County, FL, features a white sugar sand beach, the perfect setting for Penny’s early morning walks. The beach was only one-half mile from their home.

The Marsh, Minnetonka, MN

Penny's Pets (all favorites, of course)

Lamb Chop



Penny loved all creatures "great and small." Living with cats was a source of love and inspriration every day. They were part of the landscape and soul of her home with cat adventures and observations to be woven into poetry. The simple wisdom and accepting nature of a cat complimented Penny perfectly!
