Here and there

More snow last night. . . about three inches in Egg Harbor.
Moving on, people keep informing me of all their plans for this spring and summer.
I got an e-mail from Pat Fuller, president-elect, Door County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary. The wildly popular House and Garden Walk is set for Tuesday, July 29.
Have you been to Liberty Square, the shopping center in Egg Harbor? It’s continuing to develop and will soon have a European-style bakery, Brigitte Sonne, the owner of Country Lady/Country Squire (an adorable shop in Liberty Square) tells me.
I saw a number of people at an event last night. Judi Ekholm is busy getting ready for a big show of her spectacular oil paintings at Edgewood Orchard Galleries, Fish Creek, in July. Barbara Bentley told me that painter Bob Bentley has a new series of whimsical and arty Door County village paintings coming out this season. The couple has a gallery/study in Ellison Bay.
Did you know that Karin Overbeck teaches mosaic art in the basement of her home/schoolhouse? That’s in Sturgeon Bay. Karin also offers garden tours of the beautiful and award-winning grounds, and I’ll write about that when the time is right.
After all, right now, right here, there is snow for cross country skiing, How wonderful! Until next time, see you here and there on the Door Peninsula, Donna Marie Pocius, freelance writer

Here and there

I’m really excited about some of the invitations I have received and some of the things coming up this spring and summer.

Todd Trimberger of Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center sent me an e-mail invitation to the Fire and Ice. That’s a festival going on this weekend, Feb. 15 to 17 in Sturgeon Bay with national champion snow sculptors and a dinner/dance this Saturday. Streetlife, the Milwaukee Bucks house band, is performing. That sounds like fun,

And for something a tad further, Janice Thomas, chef and owner of Savory Spoon Cooking School, Ellison Bay, let me know about an upcoming culinary adventure. She has traveled to Mexico with classes, and this spring she is going to France, taking a small group to explore “Flavors of Provence” May 13 to 19. Janice is extremely talented, patient and kind as she teaches cooks of all levels, and I’m certain such an excursion with her would be wonderful. Find out more at

I’m likely to sign up for one of the Peninsula Art School’s art history classes. They have a great line-up this year, and the catalog is out. Check it out, Meanwhile, on the lakeside, Bjorklunden has mailed its catalog of 2008 seminars, and I’m eyeing an American art class.

So there’s lots being planned and oh, there is snow on the ground, too. Call your favorite park as conditions vary. See you here and there on the Door Peninsula, Donna Marie Pocius, freelance writer

Egg Harbor's Beach & Marina Might Expand!

Egg Harbor has purchased additional shoreline property adjacent to the existing Egg Harbor beach - and it looks like we will get more beach in Egg Harbor as a result. The beach is already one of the nicest beaches around, and this will even make it nicer. In addition, the village is looking into redoing the entire marina and dock area. Feasability studies are underway now to see if this project can begin after the 2008 season. The plans look great for this first-class project. So stay tuned.

Here's a nice Egg Harbor beach picture to warm you up on a cold day (it's about 3 in Door County today - warming up to 13 on Monday!) -------->
