    Bailey’s Harbor is in Door County, Wisconsin. I’ve read the Peninsula Pulse publication on visits to “The Door.” I’d love to find something written by one of us in the August literary issue. We often visit in September, shortly after the August issue is released.

  2. Can people enter this contest outside the U.S

  3. Ann, i wanted to wish you and all the other mothers out there a wonderful Mother’s Day.

  4. Yes to Mothers from everywhere! Thanks, Lisa.
