Weekend Recap

Everybody had a blast on this snowy, winter weekend!

Jim Lundstrom walked in the snow to the Egg Harbor village offices to check out the first of the 50 Eggs-travaganza eggs that are going to be displayed around the village next year. Then he went looking for some color in the gray and snowy scheme of things and came across the wintry remains of a Queen Anne’s Lace holding snow like an ice cream cone, and then a cardinal red burst of color from a grove of sumac on the hill above Main Street Market, where he bought a six-pack of Lucky Buddha Lager. He walked home and climbed the outside steps of my apartment to remove snow from the third-story deck. While there, he noticed how pretty my neighbor’s house looked framed by bare trees and a snowy pine. Finally, he took a shot of the icicles hanging from my roof before going inside to enjoy a Lucky Buddha Lager.

On Saturday, Carol Thompson went north to enjoy the snow. She started with a cup of coffee at Brew in Ellison Bay, where she also picked up a wedding gift from the Mink River Mudslinger and enjoyed the coffee shop’s wifi, then hit the trails at Newport State Park. There’s no better way to enjoy the outdoors than from a pair of cross country skis!

Jess Farley celebrated the season on Saturday, when she took her son Wyatt to see Santa Clause at Mike’s Port Pub in Jacksonport.

On Sunday afternoon, Alissa Ehmke enjoyed cucumber sandwiches and some turtle cheesecake at a holiday tea at the Inn at Cedar Crossing in Sturgeon Bay. The event has become a recent holiday tradition for Ehmke and her family.
