Exploring Door County

We had a very busy day today. We began with an early morning cruise on Lake Michigan. We traveled through the canal connecting Sturgeon Bay with the Lake, between two lighthouses. The water was so smooth.

After returning from our morning cruise, we drove farther up the peninsula to Egg Harbor, Fish Creek, and Sister Bay. Door County flowers are impressive- they grow profusely everywhere! Unfortunately, (our opinion) tourists are also abundant in these villages.

We then headed to the east side of Door Peninsula to visit the Cana Island Lighthouse. We climbed the 97 steps to the top of the tower (built in 1869) to experience the view.

A large rock shelf just under the water here caused many shipwrecks in the 1800's.
