Today I’m linking up with Andrea for her Show and Tell Tuesday series. Today’s topic is our hometown.
I have spent most of my adult life in Milwaukee ( minus a brief stint in Chicago). But I grew up in a small Northern WI town, Sister Bay.
Sister Bay is part of Door County which is located on Wisconsin’s peninsula. ( WI is shaped like a mitten and Door County is the thumb). Being a peninsula there are lots of really nice beaches which brings lots of tourism from mostly Chicago ( about 5 hours away). So my small town of 70o residents has two mini-golf courses ( with a third one a couple miles away in the next town over) and has countless resorts and condos.
The big landmark is Al Johnson’s Swedish restaurant. The log building was imported from Sweden and on nice days spring through fall there are live goats on the grass roof! In high school my class posed for a group shot on top of the roof ( minus the goats).
My husband and I are a bit bedraggled in the photos because it was 95 degrees! That is exclamation point worthy as due to proximity to the lake, Sister Bay rarely gets that warm, it typically hovers in the 70s with low humidity in the summer. But apparently that changes when I opt to host everyone I know at an outdoor event 😉
Please join me tomorrow when I join a Confessions link up…secrets abound 😉
