more water. my dad always made fun of me because wherever we went, i took pictures of water. at least i'm consistent.
heading north. marc loved the windy roads. i loved shooting through a windshield covered with bug guts.
as did this couple. pansies. they should have experienced the brisk air and wind chill, like we did.
it was pointed out to us that this is the lighthouse for "death's door." lots of shipwrecks in that part of the lake. good to know.
we stopped here for lunch. they were all out of lawyers, also known as burbots. why are they called lawyers? forgot to ask. maybe they're bottom-feeders. if that's the case, i'm glad they were unavailable.
no service. first time marc's ever seen that on his iphone. which, in door county, is known as "ipaperweight."
i was enamored with the old light. strange little things appeal to me. the shake machine ... this light ... marc ... (just kidding. he's not little.)
we stopped in sister bay to take a walk on the seawall and check out the boats. as we got closer to the edge, we kept hearing these loud splashes. turns out, the salmon were trying to leap out of the water ... poor dears were confused. what an amazing sight, though.
at al johnson's swedish restaurant, you can get swedish pancakes, swedish meatballs, and a swedish lawnmower.
this turned out to be the vacation of the hat. we tried on so many hats. why? that's a really good question. to which i do not have an answer.
marc and i saw this church at the same time and said, simultaneously, "cool church!" we took that as a sign to pull over.
dinner at helsinki's was ... not what i was hoping. dessert at helsinki's was another story. pumpkin cheesecake on a ginger cookie crust with whipped cream, cinnamon and apples (i ate the apples first). fan-freaking-tastic.
wednesday was the first day of rain. all day. lots of it. but the morning was just misty and foggy ... perfect for a quiet walk with a camera. (quiet = marc still in bed at this point.)
