The North Shore - Part 1

Hello!  As you can see I haven't been posting much.  It's because I am currently on vacation in northern Minnesota with my two sisters and niece.  Jackie and I (both living in California) flew to Minneapolis, rented a car and drove to our parents' house in Pine River.  I helped them set up a new computer and played with their new puppy, Mya.

Mya is a Schnauzer-Lab mix

Jackie and I then drove to Duluth and met my sister Fay and her daughter.  First time I have ever been to Duluth - and I grew up in Minnesota and went to college in northern Minnesota.  Go figure!  Duluth is a really interesting place.  It was very cool to see the big ships coming and going on Lake Superior.

After Duluth we headed up the North Shore along Lake Superior toward Canada.  We stopped at sights along the way - Gooseberry Falls and Split Rock Lighthouse.  The lighthouse was especially cool.  We started at the top and toured the lighthouse, then walked down about 170 steps to the lake and I took this awesome photo:

That's it for now.  I'll be back with more later!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
