patty in her element..duluth harbor, lake superior, MN, originally uploaded by spiralflmz.
sort of working backwards towards the weekend's activities. sunday, my sister patty and i drove north to duluth on the north shore of lake superior. it was absolutely beautiful- light breezes, bright sun, pre-tourist season, no bugs. they've finally figured out that having an international seaport in their city is a cool thing- what once was a bunch of warehouses, porn shops and strip joints (hello sailor, new in town?) is now an area of boardwalk, lovely hotels, restaurants, carriage rides, omni-theater, aquarium, museums. but you can still drive up the coast a few miles and sit by calm, wide water- and 30 miles north of that is wilderness. i love minnesota in that way- atlantic city w/casinos and hotels, and half hour later? trees and "you betcha."
life is lovely in this spring of sunsets.
wishing you the same.
