“This picture is of my mom and dad, John and Joanne Bush, who are now permanent residents of Sister Bay as of a little over a year ago. We have been coming to Door County for over 32 years. This picture was taken about 32 years ago while walking along the beach at Whitefish Dunes on a cold Door County afternoon in winter. My mom is holding her Al Johnson’s mittens! They are quite a bit older now, and grayer, but still loving Door County!” ~ Lara BushPensy

In an effort to celebrate the county, the fashions, and the awkwardness that ran rampant before the days of digital – we hope to feature your vintage Door County vacation photos. Let’s see you enjoying the county in your Air Jordans, neon-colored fanny packs, teased hair, and shoulder pads. Embrace the awkwardness!
