Here's where DH, WW, and I will be hanging out for the next week or so-- our favorite spot on Washington Island, Door County, Wisconsin. We will be on the west, sunset-side along Green Bay waters rather than the east, sunrise-side on Lake Michigan. Our cottage has a clear view of the water at the edge of the green lawn with a small sandy area and boat launch. The Island is about 6 miles long and 5 miles across with approximately 660 year-round residents, but lots more in the summer. Many, but not all, of the permanent residents are Icelandic and Scandinavian descendants. The peninsula has become so popular that we prefer the Island. Although there are lots of tourists there, too, during the summer months, it resembles what the Peninsula used to be like when I was a kid. Anywhere on Door County, fondly known as the "Cape Cod of the Midwest," is a wonderful place to vacation. I'll add more photos as soon as I can establish an internet connection.
