Sister Bay, Wisconsin - October 2008

This was the second trip Edie and I took up to Door County, Wisconsin. The first was purely exploratory for us and we stayed in the Britannia Bed and Breakfast in the town of Algoma. For our second trip we decided to take a couple extra days and seek a more private, lakefront setting, which we found in the "Whispering Pines" cottage at Sister Bay.

The cottage was just beautiful and as quaint and comfortable as we could have hoped. We had a wonderfully quiet few days there listening to the waves hit the shore just a few feet away and warming ourselves by the fireplace.

We happened to be there during a huge annual festival which seemed to involve only battered fish and beer. Rather than join in, we found a wonderfully stocked specialty store, Top Shelf Cafe & Gourmet‎, which wined and dined us throughout our visit.

On each trip up to Wisconsin, we also have the pleasure of visiting Aunt Toots and Fred, who always graciously open their warm home to us. Its a great place relax, catch up on Rubinowitz family history, and hear a deep analysis on the current season's Packers line-up.
