Seagulls and pelicans on the beach in Algoma

The Algoma lighthouse

Penninsula winery

Today was a good day for a preliminary exploration of the area. When we started planning this trip, we didn't realize that next weekend is the time for several fall festivals in Door county. Turns out most of the RV parks farther north of here were booked up for most of the week. However, Valerie found this RV park in Kewaunee, which is almost Door county but maybe better. It's very close but it's quiet and woodsy and very pretty. There is a corn field right behind us.

We headed north through Algoma (pop. 3000) and then Sturgeon Bay, the largest town on the penninsula. We wandered through the countryside a while and "stumbled" on a beautiful building which houses the winery plus a distillery and large shop with oils and vinegars and dressings and cheese (most of which are made locally) plus fun gifts and "stuff." After some wine tasting, we picked up a few things but will definitely visit again before we leave.

We then drove back through Sturgeon Bay and had lunch at the cutest little cafe, only open for lunch, that was listed on Trip Advisor. It was the prettiest, cleanest little shop and the food was amazing! Tom had what he said was the best fish (walleye) sandwich he's ever had, and I can verify that my fish tacos were the best ever. We made a small grocery run and spent the evening digesting that great lunch.
