It is a week past Memorial Day, but I have been busy snuggling with my husband , who returned from Japan on Wednesday. Nathaniel was gone for a week, not that long, but having him so far away made me miss him more. Anyway to take my mind away from missing him I decided to have a little "me" time and go on a little vacation by myself. This was the first time I have ever done this and I LOVED it, I think I may make a habit of once a year going off by myself. On Saturday, I left for Door County with the radio turned up. I stopped in Sturgeon Bay and walked around a little arts and crafts fair, and then made my way up to Ephraim. At around 5 I made it to the little bed and breakfast I was staying at called The French Country Inn of Ephraim and met Walt, the innkeeper. The French Country Inn was perfect! It was exactly what I expected. The decor was simple and beautiful and the rooms were cozy and comfortable. Walt was the nicest innkeeper, as were the other guests. I loved the late night conversations over tea and homemade cookies. The best part of my vacation were the delicious homemade breakfasts Walt would make and sitting around for hours at breakfast talking with him and the other guests. It was so comfortable it felt like home. Walt made homemade pancakes and scones, and there was fresh rhubarb sauce and cherry yogurt parfaits just to name a few of the delectable items. (mmmm... I have been craving cherries since I got back!) I did not do too many activities while there, but I did go to a few gallery openings, walked around a folk school, visited the Ridges Sanctuary and went to a fish boil. I had an absolutely wonderful time and am looking forward to my next trip to Door County.
