Around the Corner with John McGivern - Door County's Quiet S
Quiet must be a relative term since the Lake Michigan side of Door County was pretty loud and active when John was there in October of 2018. Then again, maybe it was John who was loud and active! But he was also completely impressed by Waseda Farms and Door County EMS’s unbelievable boat, awed by the married and incredible artists at Martinez Studio, and soothed and entertained by pianist Dan Meunier. He was mostly surprised (and sometimes completely confused) by the Walloon speakers, rejuvenated on the grounds and in the chapel at Bjorklunden, and inspired as he hiked at Cave Point. He was satiated with Swedish limpa bread at Town Hall Bakery, lobster at Harbor Fish Market and Grille, and the famous pecan rolls at Grandma’s Swedish Bakery at Rowley’s Bay Resort. And just so you know, not even one of the people he met was quiet about how much they love living, working and playing in this area of Door County.
