So - I mentioned last week that Chicago-daughter and I took a little road trip
- a girls weekend -
to Door County, Wisconsin.
I don't get out to Chicago to visit nearly as often as I would like to
(love visiting that city!)
but this time, we opted for a little get-away.
The town of Fish Creek is situated on the Green Bay side of the peninsula -
we did a little shopping and meandering -
and enjoying the whimsy.
Driving along the coast,
we found charming lighthouses,
still a little Fall foliage,
(which I made Chicago-daughter pose in front of)
and a beautiful coastline that I suspect many of my East Coast friends would find
a bit surprising.
And that's not to mention the apple orchards, wineries and fantastic cheese
(Yes, Vermont, you have a rival there...)
I'm always a little sad flying out of Chicago,
and this time - a little more so.
I'm happy to say that Chicago-daughter plans to head back East at the end of December,
but the Midwesterner in me loved my occasional Heartland fix.
And I am so glad we decided to take this little trip.
