We are bringing our fall adventure in Door County to a close. It is only fitting that we end with a spin around Peninsula Park.
See ya on the road. ~ Indy and Lucy
Today was a shopping day. We stopped to buy honey crisp, sweet tango apples and took some pics as well.
Wineries were next on the list.
Autumn continues to advance on Door as we continued on our errands to
pick up a few items in town,
a visit to the dock of the bay,
and then it was time for dinner.
Lure, Sister Bay
Later it was nighty night for little Scotties and their pawrents. ~ Indy and Lucy
We have switched to our blue cottage in Fish Creek. We will be staying here a few days till we start our drive home.
We began our day with spa treatments at Pet Pleasures in Sister Bay. We then went on a drive to see the countryside colors. They are practically at peak.
I love pumpkins. ~Lucy
We left our message as did other guests of the Linger Longer before we went on our way. See ours?
Check out was 10 so we had quite a bit of time before our check in at 3 in Fish Creek. Notice the fog this morning on our drive to the other side of the peninsula.
Mom and Dad wanted to stop at the White Gull Inn for breakfast.
Everyone’s favorite seems to be the stuffed cherry French toast but Dad always orders the “Nice Guy Hash” because he is and Mom orders different things as long as they come with hash browns which are the size of a small iron skillet. They are not known to be calorie conscious on vacation. BOL.
The fall decorations around Fish Creek are lovely and the leaf color change continues. Mom says the camera does not show how beautiful it is to the eye.
We saw the goats on the roof again at Al Johnson’s Swedish Restaurant in Sister Bay.
Then we ended up here. You know what this means. Yep, bath appointment at Pet Pleasures for tomorrow.
Before we left home Dad designed a stencil in order to put our names on the warehouse/art gallery on Anderson dock in Ephraim. We brought it along with our little paint pots from Home Depot and were soon in business.
Here is a picture of the dock taken last spring.
I saw a golden doddle and gave him the barking of his life. His parents did not have him on a leash. Tsk. Tsk.
Mom went to the Tannenbaum store. She can’t resist a Christmas shop.
She didn’t buy anything there but sprung for a duck head walking stick at the Rusty Rabbit. We would show it to you but it’s wrapped for traveling. Totally awesome, though. That was our day; hope you enjoyed it. ~ Indy and Lucy
We started out at our lake house and continued up Whitefish Bay Road.
The fall report is that the color change is at 50%. Everyday we see a difference.
We went by our favorite park today: Frank Murphy County Park.
Lots of geese and other ducks were on the water. We even saw a bald eagle.
It was gorgeous today with mild temps and not so windy to mess up my hair do.
This park is never crowded and is a great place for Scotties to walk the beach.
The trees along the county road are experiencing change too.
We stopped at an apple orchard today also.
We continued to Ellison Bay and the ferry road.
Tomorrow we have to move from the lake house to the Java Hut, our blue cottage in Fish Creek. Big storms are predicted too. It’s all in an adventure. ~ Indy and Lucy
The day began with a beautiful sunrise.
I love wave watching; it is my favorite thing. Sister pays no notice of them.
Later we went into Sturgeon Bay, a town at the entrance to the Door County peninsula and by far the largest one. It is a lovely place filled with historic homes, beautiful neighborhoods, and remarkable architecture. The shops were all decked out for Halloween.
We also stopped by the fireboat.
This is the bridge that goes over the shipping canal linking the peninsula with the rest of Wisconsin.
By the time we were finished shopping, the day had turned gray.
The wind grew stronger and the fog rolled in. Another Door Day comes to a close. ~ Indy and Lucy
Map of Door peninsula: the top arrow is Fish Creek where we stay each spring for the Scottie rally, 2nd arrow is location of the rally and the third is where we are right now. You can see how easy it is to go up and down and across exploring.
We checked out a state park we have never visited: Potawatomi. On the map, it is the green area on the right hand side across the shipping canal. It was very pretty but small compared to Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek.
There were many hiking trails and
Color change is just beginning.
The other day we had rain all day.
Mom read and we wave watched.
The fire was cozy too.
The next day it looked like this.
Mother Nature is amazing, huh? Don’t know what we are doing today but for sure, we are ‘keeping it simple.’ ~ Indy and Lucy
Cruising up Hwy 57, we stopped at a antique/market, Koepsel’s Farm Market.
We loved this rooster weather vane.

Hallowine and Witches Brew
Wish you were here. ~ Indy and Lucy
Mom and Dad cannot pass up a Farmers Market no matter where they are. Today was no different in Jacksonport, Wisconsin as they pulled to the curb the minute it was spotted.
Meat…would you look at the cost of rabbit?
We stopped at one of our favorite spots in Bailey’s Harbor too. As you can see it was pretty windy out on the jetty. The leaves are starting to turn and there are spots of brilliance; we are saving that for later. For now, Keep It Simple ~ Indy and Lucy
