School House Beach
in Door County, WI
I grew up in South Florida so a beach to me was the sand and the ocean. I was a bit surprised when I moved to the midwest and they talked about going to the beach. Geography was not my best subject, but I knew we weren’t a coastal state. 😉
When locals say they’re going to the beach what they really mean is the lake. While it’s not the ocean, it’s still beautiful and relaxing. When I headed to Door County in Wisconsin with some of my fellow North Iowa Bloggers we were told by so many people that we had to check out School House Beach on Washington Island.
They weren’t kidding – the beach is beautiful.
My favorite part was the actual “beach” – it’s made of white, smooth stones. They were so smooth. I totally would have taken a few back with me, but you can actually be fined for it. Really, they have a sign posted warning you not to take any of the stones.
We had such a great time there. If I lived closer I could totally see myself spending lots of time there reading a book.
