After the absolute excitement and craziness of a wedding, there was only one place we wanted to be…
Door County, Wisconsin!
We drove up Friday afternoon and after a quick stop at a winery for a tasting, checked into our adorable room complete with a kitchen and fireplace. We didn’t stay long before heading further up north for Friday night fish fry. Not surprisingly, there was a wait, so we found a comfortable spot on a bench at the bar across the street, Wisconsin beer in hand. There is no place more relaxing than DC!
Even though the weather was raining on and off, we had the most wonderful 4 days. We caught some gorgeous fall colors and ate ourselves silly with all the delicious food. We hiked through Peninsula State Park and walked through Cave Point and Newport State Park.
The waves on the Lake Michigan coast were intense! And we built our first rock structure along the shore.
We sampled cheese, bread, wine, and Island Orchard Hard Cider…
We drank coffee, hot chocolate, and tea and ate pie, cookies, donuts, and fudge. We visited our favorite pizza place (twice)!
We visited old favorites and discovered some amazing new places (ie farm fresh meats and fresh picked apples). And when the rain came pouring down, we gathered around the fireplace to play games and drink champagne.
I shopped the markets and stores and had two peaceful morning runs through the state park.
It was the perfect long weekend of rest and play…
For my new husband and I!
