White Lace Inn
Sun rising in the
We love February, when the sun shines longer in a
bright blue sky! Following December’s growing darkness and January’s
attempt to regain brightness, February comes on strong with lighter,
longer days. The sun warms the earth, the air is crisp and clean and the
temperatures are unpredictable. The weather has been mild this winter; the
last big snow storm came in mid December. Since then the day time
temperatures have been well above freezing and we are looking at green and
open fields, but that can change overnight and our hikes in the parks will
require skis or snowshoes and flag football will turn to ice hockey. For
our friends who have a love of all things nautical, 18 "lakers" from 600
to 1000 feet in length are docked in the shipyard for the winter and they
are a sight to see all lined up.
Yes, it is a quiet time in Door County with less traffic and more time to enjoy local events. We at The White Lace Inn are spending some time sprucing up our rooms and suites, getting ready for another season of fun with old friends and new. We are still running our Winter Romance packages through March and it includes a Dancing Bear discount coupon so come check out their inventory. Enjoy our Recipe of the Month, Door County Cherry Muffins, with a cup of coffee or tea.
