The colors of autumn

These look good, but they are an unwelcome sight. The Green Bay side of the Door County Peninsula has already been overbuilt by developers that entice the tourist trade, and, unfortunately, it is an increasing trend on the Lake Michigan side. The County has lost much of its charm from the area I knew as a kid. I still prefer the quaint, small cottage-like buildings and old-fashioned resorts in the villages that line the peninsula. Progress? Sigh!!

Wood Orchard Market located in the village of Egg Harbor is a mainstay on Door County. Pies, pastries, jams, jellies, flavored butters, and Peninsula cherries are some of the local products and delicacies. Loyal fans, the market also promotes the Green Bay Packers! Although I moved to a neighboring state, I, too, am still a fan of both the County and the Packers!!

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!
