The Place to Be!

The Beachfront Inn has a wonderful location on the Lake Michigan side of the Door County, WI peninsula. Besides being dog friendly it has lakeside views, an outdoor swimming pool, and a beachside firepit for evening bonfires.

Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Vacation

Baileys Harbor, Door County, Wisconsin

With apologies to Judith Viorst, Alexander is not the only one who has bad days.  Our drive to Door County from St. Paul was relentless rain, which has not stopped.  Worse is that our 13-year-old-dog, Maggi who is with us, is very sick.  We visited a wonderful vet clinic in Green Bay that communicated with Maggi's regular vet at the U of Mn; it's determined that she has kidney failure.
The autumn leaves are at its peak but Maggi's autumn years are about to end.  We will leave for home early.  My break has been short-lived!

Herman Miller Chair

After eating a delicious luncheon plate at Foxy Filafel cafe I browsed at Succotash, a vintage shop at 781 Raymond Avenue in St. Paul and was attracted to this chair manufactured by Herman Miller.  I liked the finish and curve of the wood.  I don't know if this is a "typical" price for this style chair, but others on eBay have similar or higher prices depending on the kind and quality of the wood. The shop is designed well without the appearance of clutter.  The center aisle is wide and the shelves with many items do not appear crowded. Fun to browse there.

Thursday Challenge-Shiny: Highland Park Neighborhood Library

Not quite finished yet, but the Highland Park neighborhood library is scheduled to open on November  16, and I am anxiously waiting.  I am a loyal patron of libraries.  Love them all!!  The shiny windows promising lots of interior natural light.
