Door County

A little bit of a family vacation last Monday...

My parents visited for the first time together and we spent the day up in Door County (the thumb peninsula of Wisconsin). It is Cape Coddish on the western side, and more rugged on the eastern side. Lots of northern European influence in these parts. We took the driving tour...

Al Johnson's Swedish Restaurant in Sister Bay is known for its authentic Swedish dishes, yes; but more famous for its tribe of goats that grazes on the thatched grass roof in the summer months (they have a ramp, I'm told). The goats weren't up yet... I was disappointed.

Cave Point in Whitefish Dunes was formed by "eons" of Lake Michigan pounding ashore. Some quick snaps from there...


And when you're in Whitefish Dunes, you have to go see the actual dunes. Indeed, Wisconsin does have sandy beaches!
