Yes, everyone has a favorite place. If we can’t make it to Disneyworld, we choose Door County, Wisconsin. What’s not to like about crystal blue water, fresh winds and the fair weather of mid September!
Lake Michigan carves limestone formations, grottoes and caves into the shoreline at Cave Point County Park near Jacksonport, Door County, Wisconsin. It is freeing to walk along the polished stone “beach” exposed by the crashing waves. We climb over broken slabs of limestone, fallen into the water. Others have already been pounded into rubble. Our feet make a crunching sound as we hasten the mulching of billions of tiny shells into newly-minted sand.
Tomorrow, we visit yummy shops and play tourist. But today we feel one-with-nature on the shores of Lake Michigan. Sigh. Winter is coming soon.
