We drove up yesterday to the ‘Doors of Death’ – an old sailing appellation that gave Door County it’s name. It was a wonderful, sunny drive – but it IS a might chilly up here.
We’re staying at our favorite digs up here – Chanticleer Guest House – and chilling inside for a bit with coffee before meeting up with our friend Norma and heading up the peninsula for cherry-stuffed French toast at the White Gull Inn, wine and chocolate tasting at Stone’s Throw Winery and who knows what else before settling into dinner at Mission Grille this evening.
The gardens here are popping with tulips, iris, daffodils and who knows what else, all gorgeous, the lambs in the pasture are approaching a month and a half old, and Jack, the Inn’s dog, has made certain we were well and properly welcomed.
After settling in last night, we went out for a quick dinner at a new (to us) place just over the bridge to the other side of Sturgeon Bay – the Blue Front Cafe. The light was too low for my trusty iPhone to capture dinner, but trust me that the fish tacos were among the
best I’ve had.
Rich enjoyed his Asian salad, and the Malbec was a nice accompaniment. Here’s Rich out the by the sign:
It promises to be a good weekend!
