Adventures…(Photo intensive post)

Well, it’s Sunday evening here, the Vikings managed to find a way to loose again and I’m still battling a cold. On the plus side, it was a beautiful day, spaghetti sauce is bubbling away on the stove and I’m remembering my knitting skills.

Although this blog is mainly about my needlework endeavors, I thought I’d share a bit of our weekend up north (September 14th-17th) in photos. I hope you enjoy. 🙂

This is your’s truly on the trail. In case you wondered, I don’t glow, I sweat! Those things in my hands that look like ski poles are actually Nordic walking poles…designed to help give the upper body a workout when hiking. In this case they also helped me keep my balance over hundreds!!!!!!! of rocks. LOL Still, it was a beautiful day. My hat…the same hat that seen me through about a 100 pound weight loss…says ‘Endorsed by No One’. For some reason that struck my funny bone.

Next:

This is DH at the Split Rock Lighthouse overlook. It was a cloudy day but he was (and we was) still enjoying himself (and ourselves). He didn’t really want me to take his picture. Can you tell? 🙂

And:

Room at the Lodge 2

Our room at Cove Point Lodge. It was beautiful…and included a Scandinavian Style breakfast.

This is the view from our room…the great lake they call ‘Kitchi Gummi’ (to quote Gorden Lightfoot). We could hear the water lapping at the short all night long. What a GLORIOUS symphony! We also did another rock scramble to get out to that point you see. We made it at sunset. It was worth every calorie burned.

Finally: A couple of photos from Silver Cliff. This area used to be a dangerous part of Highway 61 going north out of Duluth, but they blasted a hole through the cliff, put in a tunnel and the old road has turned into a biker and pedestrian overlook…boasting a beautiful view of the lake.

I’m smaller than the cliff :-)

Okay…I admit it’s a silly grin, but this is the cliff that gives Silver Cliff it’s name. I’d never gotten this close before. 🙂

what a view

The view north and east. Even with the cloud cover it’s stunning.

A little fall color

…and a little fall color.

I will leave you with a photo of the Aerial Bridge…marking the entrance to the Duluth/Superior harbor.

All in all it was a fine weekend. A little shopping, time with Dan’s folks and a little exploring.

My hope this week is to update my Needlework Library Listing and take some photos of ‘adventures in knitting’ as well as the Mary Beale Advent Sampler.

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Blessings,

Julie
