Door County - First timer!

This past weekend I was forunate enough to get out of the city and into the beautiful scenery of Door County or if you are cool you say DOCO ( Pronounced : Dough Co)
My amazing boyfriend Nick, took me on the not so long drive from Milwaukee Friday night we arrived to the Stone Harbor which is technically Sturgeon Bay. The only place that was open for food was a place called Brick Lot on 3rd street. I had a decent and tastey Perch sandwich. Washed it down with a beer and a Jameson shot. The night air was cool and we strolled along to the next local establishment I really don't remember lol I think it could be the nautical inn or something. Either way we danced a little and drank another cold one. Lauging and loving every moment in our new little northern getaway.

The next day we decide to sleep in a bit and relax in the loft bedroom suite we had. Remembering what the local Bartender said about taking Bayshore Rd instead of the mundane hwy 42. We get some crappy coffee and a stale bear claw from Lola's dinner (Sorry Lola but it was super dry and old)
Headed north and stopped at the little cute town in Sister bay, Ellison bay, Fish Creek etc. at a nice breakfast and took it all in.

Highlights of the trip:

I think the trees were changing slightly but I think early October to mid October they will be in full organge, red and golden color.

I loved this trip and can not wait to experience it again.

Things to do on the next adventure:
1. Kayak
2. Zip Line
3. Boat tour
