I'm all about capturing the big, and not so big, events of my life with my camera. But sometimes I have things to say about random topics that don't have anything to do with photography. Follow me through my life and find out what makes me tick and click!

Doing Door County
Mike and I recently took a weekend getaway to Door County, Wisconsin.Neither of had ever ventured to the peninsula of Wisconsin before and we weren’t completely sure what to expect.After a day there I began to wonder why we had wasted so much time in the past visiting Wisconsin Dells!Door County isn’t much farther away than the Dells and there is far more to do, especially with the close proximity to Lake Michigan and Green Bay.We stayed at Bay Point Inn in Egg Harbor and have nothing but good things to say about it.The room was great and they had a nice breakfast which was included.The location was convenient to everything and they had a friendly and helpful staff.Plus, there was a beautiful view of Green Bay which could be seen from our private balcony.Hopefully on our next visit the weather will be warm enough that we can enjoy lounging on the balcony or swimming in the small pool.
Most everything in the ‘touristy’ section of the peninsula is within easy driving distance.We spent one day driving north stopping at Peninsula State Park and a few other parks/scenicviews.Once we hit the ferry to Washington Island we turned around, stopped for lunch and then headed towards Bailey’s Harbor on the Lake Michigan side and ended up back in Egg Harbor to do a bit of shopping.Another day we drove around to a few wineries in the area and also visited Cana Island Lighthouse.Both days we were out from around 10am-4pm and managed to cover a lot of ground during that time while still taking our time and enjoying the views and a leisurely lunch.
We will definitely go back to Door County for future visits.We would like to bum around Egg Harbor, Fish Creek and Sister Bay when it’s not so chilly and windy, maybe do some hiking, take the ferry to Washington Island, and check out some other lighthouses and natural areas.When it’s warm out I’m sure there is even more to do as well….like lounge at the pool or beach and relax!
