My tiredness got the best of me on Tuesday night, so I didn’t have a blog post for Wednesday. But never fear. It’s here.
Wednesday (03.08.2017) we spent the day in Duluth, Minnesota, which is on Lake Superior. Despite the chilling wind (two-degree windchill) we really enjoyed our trip to Duluth, and I will definitely be back again.
We spent the afternoon milling around Duluth and checking out Lake Superior. When it got too cold, which didn’t take long, we took refuge in a hotel lobby where we purchased a deck of cards and played a couple of games.
The day in Duluth ended with dinner at Grandma’s, one of Sam’s favorite restaurants. Then we took a short trip across the canal into Wisconsin just to say we did it.
Thursday (03.09.2017) took us back to the Twin Cities — lunch and a cathedral visit in St. Paul and a museum stop in Minneapolis.
Earlier in the week, we tried to visit the Cathedral of St. Paul, but it was locked. Today offered more success. After lunch, we spent some time taking in the beauty of the cathedral.
Then it was off to Walker Art Institute. Some of us visited the museum while others enjoyed coffee across the street.
The day wrapped up with dinner at home and another card game.
Tomorrow is my final day in Minnesota. We’ll be visiting the Mall of America again before I get dropped off at the airport. Then it’s off to New York City for the College Media Association Conference.
Minnesota has been an incredible place to visit, and although I’m looking forward to NYC, I’ll sure miss the land of 10,000 lakes.
