The Restless Viking: Washington Island – Lake Michigan

This article was originally published on July 1, 2021 on The Restless Viking website.

We venture out to Washington Island, just off the Door Peninsula in Door County, Wisconsin. Washington Island is settled by many nationalities, but Icelanders made it home and the second oldest Icelandic settlement in the United States.

We started by taking the Washington Island Ferry across Death’s Door, camp on the island, visit the Stavkirke (Stave Church), Lookout Mountain, School House Beach, the Farm Museum, Lavender Farm and a few of the islanders.

Chuck and Martha Hayden, aka The Viking and Poppins, enjoy going on adventures off the beaten path. They also like to share their explorations with others. The Viking is a retired expedition leader while Poppins is a retired teacher. The two offer independent views of their journeys showcasing places, people, and cultures as they explore the world.
