Door County - Birthday Weekend Away

Last weekend was both our birthdays, so we decided to make a weekend out of it and go to Door County. It was a perfect weekend, accept for one thing...the colors had not started changing yet....but even still we had a wonderful time. Here are just a few things that happened along the way. We watched this man reel in the largest Fish I've even seen from someone fishing from the shore, we went to a wine festival, had lunch in Algoma. I love that town, we did some wine tasting and found out that the apple wine really isn't too bad; but at Throwing Stones Winery where they buy their grapes from California they had the best wine. Clayton got pulled over for speeding, and was so lucky to get off with only a warning...We ate dinner and stayed the night in Sister Bay. The next day, we took a ferry (truck and all) that was the coolest thing since....I've never been on a ferry before that took vehicles. There we went to an ostrich farm and saw other animals too; the camel I swear blew up his big fat tongue at us as if it was a bubble. It was the funniest looking thing. We drove around the island and went to an art and nature store. I saw the inside of a bee hive there...We only stayed a few hours, then it was time to head back home as we had to pick up our dog by 6PM; we had left him in a kennel. We had a nice lunch on the way back and then got stuck in Packer Fan Traffic. We arrived 5 min's late to pick up the dog. She said he did very well. He came home with laryngitis and his bark was horse for 4-5 days after...poor pup. And here are a few of the pictures I took along the way...


  1. Thanks for taking us along (vicariously) on your fun trip. It sound like you had a super vacation! Even the cops were accomidating. Your photos are excellent. I can't pick a favorite but I especially like the green water and the lawn chairs on the beach. What a HUGE fish!

  2. Happy Belated Birthday to you both! =)

    Great pics! I love the one with the window and the lighthouse!
