If you’ve never eaten at Good Eggs you are, in my opinion, missing out on one of Door County’s best and most unique breakfast experiences. (Maybe I’m biased: Joel Bremer, owner/manager/head cook at Good Eggs, is a friend and former roommate. I was actually one of Joel’s guinea pigs for the restaurant when finalizing the […]
Oh, to be the ball. Soaring higher in an arc above the “Blue” ninth hole of Alpine Golf Course in Egg Harbor, I’d revel in my purpose and take in the view: a 15-story bluff below, the panorama of the Strawberry and Chambers Islands in the distance, and just beyond the flag, a wide stripe […]
If you live in the northern Door area, I’m sure you’ve seen it. If you live anywhere in Door County, I know you’ve heard about it. I am, of course, talking about the “Quarry House” on Spring Road in Fish Creek – a large, French-style manor house set right into a stone quarry that has […]
Ray Bradbury once asserted that all bees have a smell. And if they don’t, they should for, “their feet are dusted with spices from a million flowers.” I roll this thought around in my head in slow motion, as I listen to the low hum of thousands of bees circling the three of us. We […]
Road biking has enjoyed a major resurgence in recent years with the phenomenal success of American bike racer Lance Armstrong and his unprecedented seven consecutive victories in the Tour de France, the premier road biking event in the world. The secondary and tertiary backcountry roads in Door County offer fantastic opportunities for those who want […]
“People love the story of the beer,” Kirby Nelson says simply. “They love the fact that the ingredients are close to home, and that it’s made by a Wisconsin brewery.” For people who are in love with the way Door County “used to be,” it certainly doesn’t get better than Washington Island. The island, located […]
“You have to find the right insect to study, to take you to the right places.” This is what Dr. Guy Louis Bush always told his entomology and evolutionary biology students at the beginning of the semester. Dr. Bush is speaking from experience, as his study of the apple maggot fly, Rhagoletis pomonella, has taken […]
Franne Dickinson, renowned and beloved Door County artist, answered the phone one day to discover her excited 21 year-old granddaughter Jennifer calling from Ohio saying, “Guess what I just discovered, I think I might be an artist!” Jennifer who had been playing around with sketching realized that she liked the picture she had just drawn […]
How does a hobby evolve into a passion, and a passion into a career? You might ask William Jauquet, who began in 1978 as a “rural folk woodcarver” and whose career has evolved over the years to encompass a worldwide audience for his bronze castings. His fame travels far and wide, and yet his feet […]
It’s not unusual for the soul searcher to pull up roots and start a new life in a new place. A man compelled to search for peace and quiet might pack his things, travel as far north as possible, turn right at the farmer’s field onto a quiet, seldom traveled road, and hole up in […]
Like Professor Harold Hill in The Music Man, Gibraltar Schools’ music teacher Charlie Eckhardt is leading the parade…and his students are keeping step. Since first walking through the Gibraltar Schools’ music room in 2000, Eckhardt has won the hearts of teachers, students, and parents. With an infectious enthusiasm that radiates through his students, Eckhardt’s influence […]
The Dorsal Sail Loft is a place where old world methods meet new world technology. Here, above an old boat yard on the Sturgeon Bay waterfront, Charlie Klein stands above an archaic blueprint of a 40-foot sailboat. His mind is calling upon formulas as he deciphers facts and figures from an age-old era of sail […]
