Door County

In 2006, Cindy and I fell in love with Maui and from then on, there was no turning back. But the catch is…Maui is 4,200 very long miles away, and we don’t nearly get to visit as often as we’d like.

So that brings us too…

Door County, Wisconsin

Cindy’s aunt and uncle – those same nice folks that got us hooked on Maui – also introduced us to the Door County bug in 2008, and that’s when we started making the 4 hour drive north whenever we could throughout the years.

It started with our 5-year anniversary in September ’08, and continued on from there. Below you’ll find a quick history of all of our past trips.
