Feeling a bit guilty about spending so much time painting on Thursday, I resolved to devote Friday to whatever Helen wanted to do.

We ventured to The Old Post Office for breakfast on the porch which overlooks the Eagle Harbor in Ephraim. While eating, we noticed a Golden Retriever meander onto Rt 42. Thank heavens it has a 25mph speed limit in this area. A couple cars did have to pause to allow the dog to cross the road. I put down my fork and went across the road to help this dog before he got hurt. I was able to get hold of the dogs collar. The collar contained his owners address and telephone number. The collar also let me know that his name is Enzo. Another person on the scene used their cell phone and contacted the owner. Moments later owner and dog were reunited. One good deed for the day.

We proceeded to The Peninsula School of Art where we were able to view a number of works by the featured artists. I helped one of the artists with hanging one of his works (good deed number 2). We ventured back to Clark Park and visited with a couple artists who were preparing for Saturdays Dockside Paint Out. We made a number of other stops in Fish Creek and Egg Harbor to pick up souvenirs and gifts for family and friends. Toured the area around Rowleys Bay and Baileys Harbor. By mid-afternoon, Helen was out of ideas. She needed a break before dinner.

We stopped at Anclam Park in Baileys Harbor. While Helen caught some rays and read a book, I painted. I finished and it was time for an early dinner.

After dinner, we made our way to the marina at Egg Harbor to take in the sunset. Could not contain myself. A scene along the shoreline caught my eye. I painted while Helen read and then took some reference photos of scenes around the marina.
