I say an emotional good-bye to Fred and Colleen, and head east, slowly.
A rainbow out at the farm.
While at camp sites I keep busy planning my journey, figuring out where I’ll stay over the next few months, and making reservations. I’m late doing it, so some of the places I’d like to stay on Lake Superior are filled. I do manage to get a few (5 actually) lakeside nights in July, AND they are pull through!
Here is Colleen and Fred’s, Daisy, wearing lilacs in her lilac colored collar.
I must say, I’ve never seen so many lilacs. I’m in the right place at the right time for them. They are one of my favorite flowers, and the fragrance sparks memories all the way back to my childhood.
At the KOA Kampground in Bismarck, ND.
We are in Minnesota now, and the landscape has changed from the wide open prairie where you can see for 30 miles, easily, to trees, and trees and more trees, and water…lakes and rivers that are full.
A really nice trail in Walker, MN.
We are actually at the very eastern edge of Minnesota, and the vast Lake Superior lies before us, as we take the North Shore Drive near Duluth.
Foggy morning on the Lake Superior shoreline.
The past few days have been cold and blustery with rain and drizzle. That’s the way spring is though, and I’m just trying to be thankful for the rain. Wish I could share it with Colleen and Fred, since western ND has been on the dry side this spring.
Once again the beauty and diversity of this earth amazes me. Gazing out at Lake Superior in the fog is mesmerizing.
Most of the first half of my life was spent in Michigan and I’m looking forward to spending time there this summer…we are almost there…Monday we should be entering the Upper Peninsula!
I’ve lacked good connectivity for some days now, and haven’t been able to post. Even now, I had to take a drive to send this blog out. But we’re still here!
