Sunday was a long day (off at 7:30 am and back after 9 pm) but it was full of delights:

     Made great time up to Duluth, and the weather was cool and fabulous the whole time we spent on the North Shore.

     Enjoyed a quick visit to Gooseberry Falls State Park and the gift shop there.

     Got to Lemon Wolf Cafe right at noon, when it opened, and had a fantastic lunch.

     Beautiful views from Palisade Head.

     A fairly short, but enjoyable time at Temperance River State Park, just relaxing on the shore of Lake Superior.

     Our first time checking out a few stores in the town of Two Harbors--and my prayer that my mom would get to see a Bald Eagle this weekend got answered in fantastic fashion as one flew in circles over the town while we were shopping--and certainly not looking for it!

     An unexpected delight in the form of discovering a fantastic candy store in the middle of nowhere--or the unincorporated town of Knife River, to be exact.

     Leaving aside the fun we had getting back home, it was a great outing!

Wow, what a lovely blue day it looks like it was. The photos were lovely. It was nice to have the people at Gooseberry Falls for perspective.

I'm so pleased to hear that you are having such a lovely time with your mum.

It was simply exquisite up there, and the beautiful clouds just added to it. =)

Thanks! We're having a wonderful time!
