Rob and I added a new vacation destination to our repertoire this summer. Friends of ours have a family home in Sturgeon Bay, WI that they travel to each summer. Rob has been multiple times over the years, but this was my first experience in Door County. It was the most anticipated trip of the summer for me and it did not disappoint. Aside from spending time with good friends, there are a few moments that have stuck with me since we got back. Best Memories
--In the backyard of a restaurant, enjoying drinks around a bayside bonfire, catching up with friends. It was our first night and it just was the relaxing “welcome to Sturgeon Bay” we needed.
--The epic 8 hour sailing adventure that we weren’t expecting to be a part of. While I wish the sailing adventure hadn’t included me getting sick over the side of the boat, I enjoyed being a part of the complexities of such a large vehicle being propelled forward by wind alone.
--The swedish pancakes at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant & Butik in Sister Bay.
--The homemade peach rings from the Door County Candy Store in Sturgeon Bay. Seriously. I didn’t know candy could taste so fresh!
--Napping in a hammock, listening to the boats on the bay and the waves lapping at the shore.
--Enjoying cocktails on the lawn as the sun set over the bay, playing some intense games of Exploding Kittens with our friends.
