First things First – Door County

Because I have had some business connections with companies in Wisconsin, I had heard that I HAD TO GO TO DOOR COUNTY. I actually had no idea where that even was, but I had always made a mental note that it was a “must see” on our list. Turns out (for those of you who are as geographically challenged as I am), Door County is the peninsula just north of the city of Green Bay. It juts out into Lake Michigan forming Green Bay (the bay, not the city). As you head north you first come to Sturgeon Bay – a small city that was built around the shipping industry. Crossing over the channel takes you to the upper peninsula which is filled with quaint villages whose primary goal is to make tourists happy. With names like Sister Bay and Ephriam, these towns are filled with marinas, galleries, eateries, shops for every imaginable collectable, wineries, and farm stands. We were blessed with picture perfect weather and made the drive from end to end. We stayed overnight at a little motel (Bluffside Inn) in Sister Bay where we could just see the water through the trees. We walked to the docks though and watched the sunset over the lake. Just about perfect! We visited the wineries, ate cherry pie, found a couple of quilt shops, and took a 2 hr. cruise from one end of the channel to the other in Sturgeon Bay. Many beautiful photo ops along the way – As soon as I get a better internet connection I’ll get some of them posted!
