We stayed at The Landmark in Egg Harbor. It had great views, and we loved the village.

At a pizza place we visited, they gave the kids pizza dough to play with instead of crayons. Markus was not thrilled; in fact, he wouldn’t touch it. But Anja had a ball!

This was one of our favorite memories of the vacation. We were out on the pier and it started to rain, so we ducked into a little gazebo in a nearby park and sat there for a long time, playing together, watching the lights over the harbor…

I took a bunch of photos at Sweetie Pies, but we didn’t eat there. It was around 11:30 when we arrived (they’d been open for hours), and when I requested 3 slices of pie, the gal working said 2 of the 3 weren’t “ready to cut into yet…come back in an hour.” WHAT? You are a pie place, and you won’t cut your pies until afternoon? I didn’t want to pay $4/slice for day-old pie, so we left. And didn’t return in an hour. And got pie somewhere else. Sherman signed the guest book, though.

We ate custard 3 different places, but this was the tastiest.

Ate at Al Johnson’s, with goats on the roof. Food was okay, atmosphere was fun. I’m a sucker for anything Scandinavian.

Saw this on our drive around the island. Those poor “ladies of the night,” being forced into slave labor for Bea.

These are hard to see, but we made a wrong turn near a park and found this odd little boat of Snoopy dogs made of milk cartons. I made Husband stop so I could take a picture.

I wish we’d had more time to explore it, but this county park, recommended by some friends who’d just been to Door County, was beautiful. Great place to explore. Reminded me of the north shore of Lake Superior, actually. Rugged, fresh, lovely.

We dubbed it a “trip” rather than a vacation (since small children were involved), but you know how the fond memories stick around and the hard times melt away? That’s how it is.

  1. I love it! “Trip” instead of “vacation” – that’s so true! And “the fond memories stick around and the hard times melt away” sort of like labor. Beautiful photos! Looks like a fun place!

  2. I love what you captured! All my years of living here and I’ve never been to Door County, someday, though. The custard sounds to die for. And who pays a whopping $9 for a little pie? What!?

  3. Looks like a fun “trip”. I agree about the trip vs vacation when you bring kids. Oofda. Love the pictures of Anja in the blue sweatshirt and her white capris. Very cute!
