I*LOVE* DOOR * COUNTY*
I love Door County so much that you can imagine my sheer delight in finding a plum colored sweatshirt that conveyed those very sentiments... "When I grow old I will wear purple and retire in Door County!" I was so tickled that I let out a squeal of laughter! You see I had just said to Randy earlier in the day that I wanted to live here someday! And get this, it was on a clearance table outside on the porch of one of those darling little shops... originally $55.00. And... oh, you know me so well... paid $13.00!!
I was looking through my Oct. issue of Martha on our trip and found out that these odd looking squash are called turban squash. I have never seen such vibrant colored squash before!
Love the Halloween artwork on this bottle of wine, and appropriately called "Hallowine". How fun and festive!
Door County is simply one of the most beautiful places in all of Wisconsin. If you look at a map of Wisconsin, you will see that it sorta looks like a mitten... well, Door County is the thumb of the mitten.
It was so much fun traveling through Door County with my brother Gary and his wife Kathy. So much to see and do... climbing up the 75 ft. observation tower at Peninsula State Park, the 130 year old Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, more wineries, hiking along trails, darling little shops in every town, discovering honey crisp apples (yum!) and sampling tons more local foods. And the day could not have been more perfect... blue skies, in the 50's, soft breezes off the Bay.
Be sure to scroll down and read my other WI posts if you are just now tuning in. We are back in Phoenix now and the weather has cooled off since we left. So happy about that! Check back for a couple more WI posts. Later!
