  • Any Way You Slice It

    The PGA states that 90% of golfers have a slice. Congratulations if you are one of the lucky minority. For the rest of us, there is hope. With a little understanding and practice, a slice can be corrected. A true slice ball starts off to the left of the intended line of shot and then […]

  • Friends and Colleagues

    If you’ve ever walked into Fred & Co. and O’Meara’s Irish House in Fish Creek, you may have noticed some similarities in their owners. True, Terry Goettelman and Megan O’Meara could not be mistaken for sisters, yet they seem to be cut from the same cloth. Both women purchased their businesses while in their late […]

  • Shady Places

    Those of us who have chosen Door County as our home for at least part of the year have done so because of the natural beauty and natural landscapes. We love the wild places, and we especially love the wooded areas. Many of the homes in the county are located on wooded lots or have […]

  • Sophisticated Casual: Interior designer Marilyn Jensen brings her work home

    Your career dictates your living space. Builders have massive homes constructed with high quality materials, electricians have convenient outlets everywhere in the house, and plumbers have large bathrooms with luxurious whirlpools. But, when you’re an interior designer, your entire home is an empty canvas waiting to be painted. Welcome to the home of Marilyn and […]

  • On Your Plate: Ultimate Picknicking

    Here with a Loaf of Bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse —  and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness — And Wilderness is Paradise now. -from the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam With miles of beaches and coastline, sixteen county parks, and five state parks, Door County may be […]

  • Expressions of Tradition

    March maple syrup, spring asparagus, vine-ripened summer tomatoes, sweet corn, fall squash…the farm markets of Door County are harvesting the bountiful crops for every season. There are dozens of “off the farm” and “on the farm” markets in Door County, and they offer both specialized crops and the entire gamut of vegetables and fruits. All […]

  • The Basics: An Introduction to the Fundamentals of Sailing

    It was 9:00 in the morning and the couple I was scheduled to give a lesson to that day had just arrived. “Ready to sail?” I asked. With a familiar mixture of excitement and nervousness, they both nodded. I handed them life jackets, we boarded the 15-foot sailing dinghy, and within moments we were sailing […]

  • In Stride: A runner keeps pace with the peninsula’s terrain

    I consider myself a fortunate person to be able to witness the dawn of a new day on the peninsula from 75 feet above Eagle Bluff in almost total silence. While getting up at 5:30 in the morning to go for a run isn’t for everyone, the serenity infused by the view from Eagle Tower […]

  • Composing a Dream: Wence and Sandra Martinez

    The universe pulls us from all directions. From our past, from our future, and from the moment. For Wence Martinez, a full-blooded Zapotec Indian, the pull began two thousand years ago when villagers from Teotitlan began to weave, and continues today at his gallery near Jacksonport, where he and his artist wife, Sandra, run Martinez […]

    Kayaking in the Door: A paddler’s perspective

    The morning sun has just peaked over the tree line, the water is golden glass, and the air is suspended in silent haze. My kayak is resting on the car rack, paddle between the seats, and the PFD, skirt, bilge pump, and paddle float are tucked in the trunk. I assemble my gear, take a […]
