Floral Thanks Card & Door County getaway …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

It’s good to be back on my computer again … I thought “no more interruptions” the internet kept cutting out during my vacation (maybe it was trying to tell me something) anyway … come home to “no internet connection” at all last night! But I’m back up and ready to share!

As promised, here are just a few of the pics from my Stampin’ Getaway in Door County …

This is the view of the Landmark resort where Eileen and I stayed. Our room is near the center of the photo hidden by the trees …


This is the view from our room –  a beautiful shot of the sunset on our first night. Can’t beat that view unless you are right on the water …



Part of the fun of Door County is trying all the different places to eat!  One of our first stops was Wilson’s and their delicious Chocolate Malts …


Trust me … that alone is enough to fill you up!

If you’re looking for something fun and some good food … try Al Johnson’s in Sister Bay. We had to stop and pick up some of their famous Lingonberry Jam. We actually ate there twice, once for lunch and then back on our last day for breakfast. This place has people stopping in the streets …


Everyone stops to get a picture of the goats on the roof. I thought I had the perfect shot before these two fine gentlemen stepped in front of me to take their picture.

My favorite for our entire trip was the Fireside in Ellison Bay. I had the “Jamaican Pork Chops” – just listen to this … Jerk marinate pork loin with seared peaches and pears, over garlic redskin mashed potatoes and szechuan green beans! OMG …


The pork chops were tender and juicy and the flavor combination was out of this world.  Not too hot or spicy … but just a little kick. It was just right!

The entire staff was amazing and Chef / Owner Blake Schar came out to greet us and see if we were enjoying our meal … YES, yes I was!  The Bloody Mary was pretty darn good too.

They took good care of us and the food is awesome … If your planning a trip to Door County – be sure to stop in at the Fireside in Ellison Bay. I may sound like a commercial but they really were that good!

I’ll share one more to say good-bye for now …


This was a shot from the pool deck at sunset … a wonderful getaway! We are truly blessed to live in such a beautiful state! When posting pics on my facebook page, friends thought I was on a tropical vacation!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ~
