We have circumnavigated Door County. We spent a couple of days seeing the sights by car, with our home base at the Holiday Motel in Sturgeon Bay. (Ean has commented on the funky Holdiay Motel in a previous entry.) But our primary purpose for the Door County trip was to attend a three-day sailing course, offered by the Hoofers, to earn ASA 103/104 certification. We sailed aboard Delia, a 1985, 47 foot Jenneau. We sailed up the west coast of Door County (the Green Bay side), and then down the east coast (the Lake Michigan side). It was an interesting juxtaposition, to see Door County first by land, and then by water. For example, we visited the USCG station at Sturgeon Bay, and took a picture of the entrance to the channel that connects Sturgeon Bay to Lake Michigan. A few days later, Ean shot the same channel entrance from the water. (Both pictures above.)
But the main thing, of course, was the learning.
