1. Edgewood Orchard Gallery
The morning was mine, so I went directly to Edgewood Orchard Galleries over on the Peninsula Players Road. So much history in that short trip! My dad had come to Door County in the 1930s to do the publicity photos for the Players as they were being created, and they’re still going strong. Meanwhile, in 1969, Annie Haberland and her mom opened the first Edgewood Gallery. Now the complex is run by her daughter Nell and JR, Nell’s husband. And they still have wonderful taste in art! (Much of the art in Sharen and Jack Young’s house is from here.)

2. The Old House
I finally got up the courage and went up the long drive to our old house (see picture below from the ’70s). Needless to say, nothing was the same! But the Sullivans who’ve recently bought it are lovely people from McHenry County, IL. So it’s in good hands!

The house Dad designed in the 1960s.

The house today (ugh!)

This was our (treeless) front lawn and meadow.

The meadow now has an outbuilding in it. At the back of the property is a garden. Huge trees have overtaken the rest of the land!

3. Ernest Anderson
Ernest came to meet me in Juddville and persuaded me to pack up a bag for the night. We had cocktails (a loss, due to the inexperience of the bartender) and a very nice meal (due to the experience of the Hillside Inn, which has been around for a long time). I stayed over and took some picture of his fabulous woodworking, which includes the house he built by hand.
