The first of two posts about a day trip I took to Door County, Wisconsin... pre-summer and just after most of the cafes and galleries opened for the season. I spent a good hour in Peninsula State Park, where I haven't been for at least ten years. The weather was fitful, so it was an abbreviated trip, but as far as Lake Michigan scenery goes, it's hard to beat.
That little bugger hanging off the leaf on the right is just one of bagillions of pesky lake flies. They were unbearable in places. The only major drawback of my visit.
This guy was absolutely enormous, and was keen to make all sorts of bizarre noises. More for his benefit than my entertainment, but it was still amusing.
And fishing. What is a Wisconsin lake without fishing?
So far, this being a newbie blog, I'm really enjoying getting into the swing of documenting my experiences and sharing them with you. That's essentially the reason for starting it up so early before departing for Scotland: if I'm in the habit, all the more to show you and keep up with. Can't wait!
