Camping Is In-Tents!
Tomorrow morning, I'm heading to Door County for a long weekend of camping at Peninsula State Park. My family camped there regularly when I was growing up, and I have many fond memories of the park and surrounding areas.
I am hoping for a weekend with beautiful weather and lots of outdoor fun. Planned activities include the following: a trolley ghost tour of Door County, a fish boil at White Gull Inn, a stop at Wilson's Ice Cream Parlor, a tour of Cana Island Lighthouse (pictured, above), a stop at Bailey's Harbor Autumnfest, a bike ride on the Sunset Trail at Peninsula State Park, and possible stops at one of the local wineries/orchards, Sweetie Pie's, and Uncle Tom's Newport School Candies in Ellison Bay.
I am so excited. I love camping, and I've been planning this trip for over 6 months, as sites at Peninsula State Park are hard to come by! The thought of camping also reminds me of my former student worker, Meghan, who also loved camping and frequently wore a t-shirt imprinted with the message "Camping Is In-Tents!" Good stuff. I still think I might need one of those.
