We got up early on Wednesday..checked the weather and headed on over to Duluth. We were gone just 12 hours. It is a four hour drive one way.
The last time we were there for train shopping and a bit of antique shopping Far Guy took ill. Since then he has wanted to return. Yesterday was the day.
Next to Curly’s Bar is the Train Shop. It is a way cool place..I walked Chance down the street..it is in an old part of Duluth..I am not sure how safe that part of town is. But it was daylight and I had a dog! He wouldn’t hurt a fly..but no one would know that!
The roads were good and the temperatures were in the 30’s. EXCEPT near Lake Superior. Those Duluthians are a tough bunch. The wind coming off of the ice was bitterly cold.
There was plenty of room to sit a spell at Canal Park. Not many tourists were around. As I was walking back to the car I met a Grandma and her Grandson all bundled up with scarves covering their faces and necks..only their eyes were showing.. I said “Hello….chilly day in Duluth! “ She replied.. “This is a warm day!”
The lighthouse in Canal Park is one of my favorite places to visit. I was there last fall when it was a tad warmer.
The antique mall was great..we enjoyed several hours just walking around. I found a few many lots of old photos to add to my collection..and Far Guy found some “stuff” for his train set.
It was a fun day..and a lovely break from our winter routine:)
