See the little silver Element? With Oregon License? That is us!!! People in Mineral Springs asked us if we were lost? That the Northwest was a ways away. Haha
Here is a ferry coming from the opposite direction. There were lots of people out on the water doing various activities, mainly fishing. So got to see Green Bay and Lake Michigan today.
We stopped at a lookout near Ellison Bay i think it was, we were high on a cliff with a view across Green Bay and thunder in the distance, clouds building up, will have to do a collage to get all the pics i took of the clouds, got some good ones, but this post is running a bit long. Can't cover it all in one day. We saw lots of things, beautiful views, crowded little towns, old, old houses and barns, LOTS of people. Neither one of us really likes all the people about and would rather see sights and country.
There were still lots of farming in Door Co and lots of orchards!!! Joseph Zettle came in 1858 and started the 1st commercial orchards, which did really well, then got together with University of Wisconsin and found that Door Co was suited to fruit trees, planted cherries, apples and plums which do really well here. They are even going into grapes and there are a number of wineries. :)
We had a really great day, but lots of driving and sun and we are tired puppies...
Take Care and God Bless
