Yes, it is coming to an end, fall that is. We had a rainier and colder than usual October which was kind of a drag but guests still got out and toured Door County. There are plenty of indoor activities so all was not lost.
I played tourist a couple of weeks ago. My friend Kelly, a close friend I have known since I was 11 years old, stayed at Egg Harbor Lodge along with her parents. One of the days they were here, we took a ride up to Northport using most of the back roads. We stopped at Bayside and the Oilerie in Fish Creek with our final stop being at Orchard Country Winery where we did a little wine tasting.
Kelly and her husband Tom were celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary. We had a blast…I hope they are able to come next year too.
Speaking of anniversaries, Mark and I celebrated our 30th on Tuesday. We decided to go to Green Bay for the night. We ended up staying at the Radisson at the Oneida Bingo and Casino. Not much of a gambler, it took me awhile to figure out the slots. You know the arm that you pull… well it doesn’t pull (you press a button instead) and did you also know videoing is not allowed? Apparently, I am the only one who didn’t know that. Anyway, I got in a bit of trouble. I want to post the video cause it’s kind of funny but I don’t want any more T-R-O-U-B-L-E. Los Lonely Boys were playing there that night so we got to see them in concert as well. Oh well, I’ll take my chances… here’s the video…
Right after I stopped at the craps table is when I got busted with “SECURITY”! There was no way I was letting them have my FLIP however. After that, the security guards were very attentive to me and I don’t think it was because they liked my sweater.
Today is our last day open until May 1, 2010. I want to send out a sincere thank you to all of our guests for staying with us this year and every year. We had a really great season and we look forward to next year and many more years. We start taking reservations in January for next year. Stay tuned for winter in Door County through my blog… winter isn’t super exciting but it is really beautiful… even in November. We have our annual Deer Hunters Venison Stew in a couple of weeks in anticipation of the deer hunt which is the one of our absolute favorite times of year.
Don’t forget Egg Harbor’s Holly Days is November 27 & 28… more on that later!
