Segway the Door

Every once in a blue moon my husband and I like to take a day off of work, when the kids are at school and daycare, to spend some quality time with one another. 

I’d like to call it, a break from the insanity, and it’s simply wonderful.  That day started out like any other day.   We got dressed and went out to breakfast.  We aren’t the type of people to sit home and waste the day, and living in Door County, why would we want to? 

We drove through town when suddenly we spotted a group of people on Segways. As it turned out, Segway the Door Tours was doing an “Everything Sturgeon Bay” Tour.  I asked the Gentleman when their next tour would be and before you know it, there we were, Helmets on and going through our training.  There’s usually always a training session on how to appropriately use your Segway. We were each given an opportunity to get on/off the Segway, and a quick loop around the room.  Luis (of course) was a pro. I, on the other hand weebled and wobbled (but I didn’t fall down) Believe it or not, it’s not as hard as it may seem.  “It’s no different than standing” as our instructor kept trying to instill in us.  Within 10 minutes we were on our Segways lined up on Historic Downtown Sturgeon Bay’s 3rd Ave, and away we were.   Our first stop was underneath the Oregon Street Bridge where we were given a brief history lesson on that and the Historic Michigan Ave Steel Bridge.  We then traveled on through the beautiful Gardens of the White Lace Inn B&B.  After more stops through town we were back at our home base. The experience lasted about 45 minutes but the memories we made that day will last much longer.
