Spring in Sturgeon Bay

Spring in Sturgeon Bay is interesting. It seems that all sorts of weather happens each day. If the day begins with clear skies and warm sunshine it ends in thunderstorms. Conversely if the day starts out with rain, it clears up nicely by late afternoon. There are frost warnings for inland areas tonight- in June! But the sunsets here are gorgeous.
 Earlier today we drove up to Fish Creek and Peninsula State Park. We took a tour of Eagle Bluff Lighthouse, built in 1868. The lilacs are in full bloom throughout Door County now,
 We have plenty of entertainment next to our humble little boat- we get to watch as the finishing touches are put on the "Lady M", a 210 foot luxury yacht built right here in Sturgeon Bay by Palmer Johnson. Wow! We've heard they are behind schedule, so workers are busy from about 5 A.M. to 10 P.M. daily.
 They seem to be having problems with the roller system that hauls the smaller of 2 tenders into the stern.
 Our favorite breakfast spot in Sturgeon Bay is Mel's Place- I love the Salmon-Spinach-Tomato Omelet topped with goat cheese. Mark had the Cherry Stuffed French Toast. We didn't even think about having lunch!
