Door County, Wisconsin

I spent five days in beautiful Door County, Wisconsin in order to teach a workshop at the Peninsula School of Art. The workshop was Monday to Wednesday but I arrived early enough on Sunday to take a good look around and left on Thursday morning. The extra time was nice and it gave me the opportunity to do a little journaling of my own and a tiny bit of sight-seeing too. Bob and I had spent a week last year up there when Jessica was working as Stage Manager for Door Shakespeare in Bailey's Harbor and I had the opportunity to ask about the possibility of teaching at the art school. We arranged everything over the winter and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and the workshop (photos to come).

A little taste of Door County:

The Hardy Gallery had a very nice art exhibit - it's a tradition to write your name on the barn

A. Anderson Store, built 1858 - the hollyhocks were so pretty!

Gorgeous light as the sun was going down, on my way to Door Shakespeare Wednesday evening

Most mornings I had breakfast at Julie's Park Cafe - oatmeal with dried cherries and brown sugar, but my last morning in  Door County, I ate at the Summertime Restaurant - these delightfully thin pancakes with fresh strawberries were to die for!

I enjoyed the flower gardens (above and below) as I ate outside the Summertime Restaurant 

Trollies at the Orchard County Winery - a quick stop on my way back to Milwaukee
