Goats on My Mind

Last week while wandering the Wetlands Preserve at the bottom of the hill in Ephraim, I came across this stump… I call it “Goats on My Mind.”  Saturday, May 11 — is the first ever “Roofing of the Goats” here in Sister Bay.

There will be a parade – all goats are invited to participate – from Mill Road down the street to Al Johnson’s Restaurant where the restaurant’s goats will be “roofed” on the grass for the first time this season.  Can’t wait!  Rain date: next Saturday, May 18.

The Season

A late snowstorm was showcasing the beauty of Door County in the wintertime as artists delivered their work this weekend to Edgewood Orchard Galleries in Fish Creek.  It’s a wonderful experience to drop off artwork – to see J.R. & Nell, their staff, other artists, other artist’s work… there’s a palpable excitement of a new season getting underway.  We’re excited to see the first show, “Inspired,” at the opening day celebration, Saturday, May 4.

In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying and sending out the Edgewood Orchard Galleries calendar — a fantastic composition of the beautiful artwork that will be for sale this season, inspiring monthly quotes, and a guide to the fun and festivities of Door County from May 2013 to March 2014. (Scottie Rally in Baileys Harbor on May 18 anyone?) Please let us know if you’d like a calendar.
