My blog is pretty laid back. I like to share jokes, recipes, books I've read, photos I've taken, day-to-day vignettes, and odd or fascinating items. All with a splash of humor. CURRENT HEADER PHOTO: My sister's famous cherry cookies.
A few years ago when my husband suggested we make a stop in Duluth, Minnesota, I thought, "Seriously?" But it turns out that it is a beautiful city with lots of things to do right on the lake. The lake being one of the GREAT LAKES, as in Lake Superior. We took a ride on a tour boat and I snapped a picture of the Aerial Lift bridge (built in 1905) when it was down,
and when it was up to allow this big freighter to pass through.
Just to give you an idea exactly how large these ships are, here's a close up of one that we watched pass by in the canal.
Duluth is the world's largest inland port, shipping coal, iron ore and grain.
