Door County Scribbles
I enjoyed a lovely trip to Door County last week. It was a last-minute trip, and I joined my father and step-mom in their already-in-progress vacation. The timing just worked out perfectly for work and family (a very unusual happenstance these days).
My first full day we drove to Sturgeon Bay to see the Maritime Museum. They had a special exhibit on Ghosts...there's a surprisingly large number of haunted lighthouses out there! The rest of the first day was spent popping into shops in several towns. I even managed to get a short ride in along Old Stage Road. I could still see the pavement markings for the Door County Century. The ride built up my appetite for the delicious dinner we had at The Mission Grille in Sister Bay. If you ever make it up that way...eat there! You'll be doing your taste buds a favor.
The second day was a work day in the orchard trimming trees and splitting logs. Now you might think that these projects would not be welcome in the midst of a vacation, but I find them very relaxing and satisfying. I attribute this to the fact that I sit on my butt in front of a computer all day, so it's a marvelous change of pace.
There was a goodly amount of sitting around chilling out, and I took one of those moments to scribble a doodle of the back of the sexy bear clock. This was a little tongue-in-cheek purchase added to the cottage. I consider it the sexy bear clock because he's wrapped around his honey pot...can't help it, my mind just goes there. He had his batteries changed while I was there...heh heh...his batteries changed. Ok, I need a nap.
Thanks for stopping by!
