Kathleen and Paul are owners and live on site. So you'll get quick response to your needs and access to your washer/dryer in the basement.

Your apartment is only 100 feet from Grand Avenue and only 100 more to beautiful Lake Merritt where the winter birds are arriving. And runners abound.

Your Saturday Farmer's Market is closeby under/around I-580. Trader Joe's is just a few more feet. Whole Foods Market is walkable from your apartment. Sprouts Farmers Market is on Broadway and Safeway is closeby on Grand Ave.

Then there's the classic Grand Lake Theater. You'll find many good restaurants on Grand and Lakeshore. Walking Grand Ave and Lakeshore at night always reminds me of the Left Bank of Paris.

This area truly is a gem and Kathleen and I are glad and happy to live here. You will be too.

We reached Duluth/Superior MN and stopped at the Welcome Center near the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. This is the Welcome Center directed at visitors coming into Minnesota from Wisconsin. It is located on a high hill overlooking Duluth and Superior. This center is an awesome welcome to visitors. It gives a good "bird's eye view" of Minnesota.




Here's a poor man's view from inside the center. (It was raining outside, and we decided to stay dry!)


Not far from the Welcome Center was the bridge that took us into Wisconsin. The road directions also point to the northern route up in MN. There's a famous light house up that way that we hope to visit "next trip." Split Rock Lighthouse Split Rock Lighthouse


We followed Route 13 (a scenic drive along Lake Superior) where we found a campground where our rig faced Lake Superior. (Just what Paul had hoped to find!)

Herbster Community Park is a quiet area right along the Lake. Shortly after we arrived, a van pulled up across the road from us - right next to the Lake and out tumbled about 12 young people who quickly put up tents. These folks are from Edgewood College in Madison and are part of the College's Biological Science Department, Chemistry, Geo Science and Physics Department.



Tents Up!


We suspect that recent storms have deposited much of the driftwood that covered the beach.


Enjoying the view of Lake Superior from our rig, what a way to end a perfect day with this beautiful sunset!

10/19 - IT IS SO much easier to blame other people, conditioning, or conditions for our own stagnant situation. But we are responsible--"response-able"--to control our lives and to powerfully influence our circumstances by working on be, on what we are. - from 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
