... this trip, but I'm glad I did. It has been a wonderful place to chill out for a few days. I haven't done much while I've been here, hiking, napping, knitting, eating. That's pretty much it. I rented a little cabin up in the woods and it has been a great base for exploring the peninsula. Most mornings have started out with my trusty thermal mug of coffee and Addie dancing in the waves at Whitefish Bay State Park.
Most of the restaurants ...
... The other four times were in Michigan over the last two days. Each time, the Michigan Department of Public Works saw fit to announce this important passage. It's the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole (did you know that? I didn't). We crossed it in Wisconsin this afternoon and the only demarcation was the 44th Parallel Winery. Wisconsin is clearly much less impressed with it's singular geography.
I stopped in Sturgeon ...
... an observation tower, beaches, steep bluffs, an ampitheater, and a golf course. The observation tower has knockout park views. We had a wonderful hike here!
... a hard time with the idea of leaving Michigan, even though we're finally going to Door County, I've been waiting since 2010 to see Door County! We had a little difficulty finding this city park in Menominee but it was a nice little city park right one the river. Just across the river is the state of Wisconsin!
... very relieved after 30 minutes when the storm passed out over Lake Michigan and produced one of the best sunsets of our trip.
The next day we started by taking a 4 mile hike along Lake Michigan. We rewarded ourselves after exercising with miniature golf (which we tied in), cheese and wining tasting, and some afternoon beers at some of the local bars in Fish Creek. Our time in Door County concluded with yet another sunset and drinks and food around our campfire.
