Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

Journey Day 3 & 4

 Day 3 found us lounging around the cabin for some serious R and R time.

We did take a walk around the lake.  Last year Chris got lost running around the lake.  Curt wasn’t sure how that could happen. ??  This year while on our walk, came  the infamous quote by Curt,  “I was so sure when we started.  Now I don’t know??”  It was a beautiful day for a walk, but every road looked the same. 

Here is a great picture.  I did ask Curt if he wanted me to take another picture from the other direction when we had to back track our steps — lol.  1 hour and 40 minutes later we did find our way back.  Now Curt knows exactly how Chris could have gotten lost.

Later I spent some time reading on the dock.  I could get used to that 🙂  Psalms 23:2b “… He leads me beside still waters.”  It is an important thing to take time to rest. 

Day 4 –Beautiful day — blue skies — sun shing — Northshore here we come!

We were tooling down the highway when we realized that we had missed a turn.  We ended up going around 50 miles out of our way, but this trip was all about the journey.  The journey was amazing.  If we hadn’t missed our turn we would have missed this pizza place out in the middle of nowhere.  Yum!

Duluth skyline was grand.  I could do without the tunnels.  There were at least 4 of them.  The air changes inside the tunnel and I really don’t like that – not to mention the whole space issue thing.  Later there were the two tunnels carved through the mountains.  Cool to look at, not crazy about driving through.

We drove on the scenic bypass to Two Harbors.  From there we headed up North shore drive.  How can I  put into words the beauty??  Up close and personal.  We did some hiking and saw beautiful waterfalls.  (so very glad I put that on my bucket list — that is where Curt got the idea for this trip)  We made it as far North as Split Rock lighthouse.  Lake Superior was breathtaking.  Nature sings its praises to God.

Headed back down 61 that evening.  Saw a deer close to the side of the road – which was close enough.  Took the high bridge over to Superior WI.  This was one huge-o bridge. (Lisa you wouldn’t have liked it at all) 

We stopped for the night at St Croix Inn at Solon Springs, WI.  Our patio looked out over the lake.  We were tired, but glad to be done for the night.  What beauty we have seen and not once was I even a tiny bit bored.  I do think I was born to ride and our bike was made for the highway.

til next time

  1. Sounds like a beautiful adventure. Was kinda starting to struggle a bit with envy there until the whole narrow city roads, tunnels, and big old bridge thing…gotta take the good with the bad right? *cringe* “Big”, “Old”, and “Bridge” just shouldn’t even be in the same sentence, especially close together like that. Nope! Don’t even wanna think about it.

    You’ll have to show off your moccasins. I used to have moccasins that I absolutely loved but they were black, not white. Miss those. Glad you were able to find your size (especially if it means I might score a newer pair of shoes! *wink*grin*wink*wink*)

    Who says you can’t be Christian and still have fun and adventure? Sounds like you’ve got some pretty good adventurous memories to store away and take with you from it.
