Greetings from Door County

Yes, we dared a get-away. For me it's a double get-away because I forgot my phone! And yet I am surviving.

We decided we would only come if we could stay in our usual cottage in Ephraim because we totally trust the owner to clean. And she didn't disappoint. It is spotless! She also keeps it empty for at least 24 hours between guests.
I did use Keith's phone to take a picture of my first drawing. This iconic old truck is permanently parked in Ellison Bay. I'm trying to learn to sketch more loosely and quickly, but I'm not sure I like this new style. 

People up here are wearing masks and socially distancing, just as they are in Madison.We either make our own meals or do take-out -- just like at home. (Kathy, Julie's is open! I had cherry crepes today. She has indoor seating, but we did carry-out.)

It is really nice to have a change of scene! And the mosquitos aren't out yet, so we are practically living outdoors. If you have a safe place to go, consider a trip!

  1. I envy your get away! I sure wish now I had tried harder to convince The Mister we needed a little RV last year. I'd be out of here in a second.
    Love the sketch! I missed seeing your work. You always inspire me to go scribble something. Even if it is always a hot mess it feels good to lose yourself in your work to a while. Araignee

  3. I LOVE Door County. I t has been years since we have been there though. Everytime we would go there the fog would be thick. Made the trip more exciting. The food there is fantastic. Love all the cherry flavored items. Even cherry wine. Enjoy your get away.

  7. It is so good for you to be in a change of scenery! And the lost ph could be a good thing! lol Love your sketching--it is the way I wanted to do art originally but couldn't find a teacher to help (I have no art in my background) but I just found a cool teacher and he is great and it is making a connection in my brain finally! Perhaps you would like to see it--

  8. We are so very lucky to have our own little cabin on a lake "up north." It has been a wonderful thing to escape this spring/summer. I'm so glad you've gotten a chance to get away. Enjoy!

  11. Boy, do I love that drawing! Enjoy your unplugged'ish getaway, and the change of scenery. That's always a welcome breath of fresh air, if you ask me! Even if it is through a mask :)
