We say good-bye to Door County and it's a rainy, yucky day.......rained all the way to Two Rivers where we'll be for our nephew's wedding. We settled in at the Seagull Marina and Campground (first time we've had boats and RV's around us). I enjoyed a bit of pampering (manicure/pedicure.) As Mark's family started trickling in for the wedding, we went to dinner with 2 of his sisters and a brother-in-law. We played cards/games in their hotel room after we gave them a Daisy tour.

On a very crisp fall afternoon, we rode our bikes (9.6 miles) thru Peninsula State Park All bundled up and enjoying an exhilarating ride!

Mark and I drove to Sturgeon Bay today to visit friends, Fran and Ed. The guys did "their" thing, while Fran and I each got haircuts and shopped! Gorgeous fall color in Sturgeon Bay, WIThis boat was submerged at the Quarterdeck Marina - apparently muskrats ate thru the exhaust hose! Scuba divers were attempting to raise the boat using large yellow inflatable bags.
The bow of the boat almost all under water!
Fran and Ed outside the Pudgy Seagull - great lunch!

Ready to board the train - Cheryl and Allie"Cheers to Friendship" - great lunch at The Grand Lux overlooking

We walked thru Millennium Park, browsed around Crate & Barrel and Bloomingdale's. The highlight of our day was seeing "Dirty Dancing" at the Cadillac Palace Theater - oh.....what a fabulous show! We would all highly recommend it! Here's Allie and Cheryl with some treats on the train trip home! A great day of girl fun with lots of laughs and memories!
