Door County, Day 1

(Written June 12, posted on June 13)

Gregg was at a conference for work earlier this week in De Pere, WI, near Green Bay. Tuesday, after the conference ended, we headed up to Door County for a couple of days. We found Eagle Harbor Inn quite easily. Cindy was the person at the front desk and she was so helpful in explaining things – spotty cell coverage, what was available on grounds, etc. She helped us make reservations at the White Gull Inn for tomorrow evening’s fish boil. She was a waitress there for many years, and her tips were to ask them to remove the bones and ask for tail sections of the fish.

That evening, we had dinner at Alexander’s. The food & service was outstanding – the waiter put our napkins on our laps – a first for me! We started with crusty french bread and butter. We chose King Crab cakes for an appetizer – the texture was so light and tender, served on a bed of spring greens with a mango sauce, the crab cake topped with hollandaise sauce. Truly the best crab cakes I have ever had! For my entree, I had perfectly-prepared filet mignon with mushrooms. Gregg chose one of the specials, halibut with an olive tapenade and melon sauce.

Back to the B&B to catch an episode of my favorite show on Discovery Channel, The Deadliest Catch. That little break gave us a chance to let our dinner settle before heading out again. First, a picture of a colorful sunset over Green Bay.

Then off to an attraction we had noticed while driving to Alexander’s…The Drive In theater! We watched Men In Black III, but passed on the second movie of the double feature, Battleship.

Our room at Eagle Harbor Inn is nice – it doesn’t have the overly fussy decor typical of many Victorian style B&Bs. We have a 1BR Queen Suite. It has a small kitchen area, gas fireplace, whirlpool, and full bathroom with shower.
