I had meant to explore southern Door County Sunday after church, but the wind was so cold I put it off for today. I was mostly on a mission to find some of the Belgian roadside chapels, but we made some other stops too.
As we were headed south I saw a sign that said “The Amish Corner”. I’m a sucker for anything Amish, so we stopped and had a look.
I saw several houses of an interesting structure. I took a picture of an apparently abandoned house in this style:
Further down the road we came to a place called “The Garden Door”. I had seen a brochure about it so we stopped. It’s a public garden tucked in behind university research buildings having to do with agriculture. If it weren’t for the sign out front you would never know this charming garden is here.
We finally made it to Sturgeon Bay and stopped in at the Door County Visitor Center because I knew I had seen a brochure there for the Belgian roadside chapels.
We finally reached southern Door County, but we had trouble finding our way around. Yes, the brochure we’d picked up showed where all the Belgian Chapels were located, but the printing was so faint we couldn’t see the names of the roads on the map. We had a map of southern Door County, but it didn’t show where the chapels were. We finally made it to Namur (pronounced Nuh-MOOR) and found a couple of the Belgian roadside chapels.
We also found some more barn quilts:
Mark took us back a way he had taken by motorcycle yesterday along the bay of Green Bay and we saw some beautiful scenery:
