Door County, Part Two

For our second night in Door County (see day one here) we splurged on a bed and breakfast (the Inn on Maple). It was pretty much the best thing ever.  Since it was before busy season, we were the only guests at the B&B.  That meant unlimited lemonade, cookies, and coffee; complete use of the backyard deck; and our choice of music playing in the living room while reading in the evening.  And, Taras's favorite part, a delicious three course breakfast in the morning. The sweet hosts, Bill and Louise, even sent us away with extra muffins for the road.

After a filling breakfast we were off to catch a ferry to Washington Island. We boarded the bikes on the boat (their first ferry ride!) and enjoyed a chilly ride to the island - watching other ferries pass by, carrying semis, moving trucks, cement trucks, and the like, was highly entertaining. The roads were wide open and passed by farm after farm, making for easy cycling, even though we were bummed not to find roads with coastal views. We visited the Stave church, a medieval wooden church, and stopped by the W.I. Farm Museum to get close to the animals and play around on pretend horses.

After leaving Washington Island we headed out of Door County, but made a stop at Cave Point County Park for one last look at the water.  We were shocked to find limestone cliffs, little caves, and super clear water. It was, for sure, a beautiful end to our time in Door County.
