Day of a post-Confinement getaway

Sunset Beach as we walked out of the restaurant.

The White Gull Inn in Fish Creek, Wisconsin.

I would not say that Confinement is done; it is loosening up.

We drove north to an old favorite of a place, Door County, north of Milwaukee. It is a wonderful place and for whatever reason, we had not been back for a while. A few years ago, we finally got to Cape Cod in Massachussetts; Door County reminds us a lot of it, albeit a Midwestern version.

Some friends of ours who have been frequenting Door County more than we have, gave us an Inn suggestion in Sister Bay. After an almost four hour trip in which we never even stopped, we arrived. The weather had changed radically from around eighty-six degrees to the sixties as we moved north of Green Bay. We headed north on the Peninsula that juts into Lake Michigan and landed on the northwestern coast of it, on Green Bay.

We settled in, rested a bit, and then went down through our old favorite, Ephraim, and stopped at the White Gull Inn in Fish Creek.

We met with our friends, who had suggested our Inn, as they just happened to be in Door County at the time. It was their last night and our first. We had a wonderful dinner, spending almost four hours with them as we had great food and a harpist to add to the mood.

When we walked out, with a bit of a drizzle, a rain that had started when we had gone in, we walked toward the car. In the distance was the visible Green Bay coastline through the trees, Sunset Beach, and although almost ten o’clock, the sunset was still lingering enough for a photo.

It is so nice to get away.
