Almost all of my life (my parents started taking our family camping here when I was about 8) I have spent part of my summer in Door County, WI. (If I was really tech savy - I would have a link to a web site or a map...that will be for future posts-for now you have to BING it) It has been a part of my cyclical year which I LOVE. When I was young I would save my money all year to be able to shop at the touristy shops in all of the different towns. NOW I save my fun money to be able purchase art! Door County has an abundance of galleries and local artists.
For the past 25 years my parents have rented cottages on the Green Bay side of the peninsula. A rocky shore and right on the water. I start my day with my coffee and my journal listening to the water and enjoying the calm. This year there was all kinds of wild life; pelicans, geese, a loon, and of course sea gulls. I had a white tail fox visit me 2 mornings in a row! The time I spend there is filled with reading, visiting with my sisters, their children, my grown children and of course my parents. We are so very lucky to have this tradition-thanks Mom and Dad!
The art is another part of my Door County experience which I love....take a peek-
