This was the perfect weekend to head to Northern MN and apparently everyone else thought so too. It was one of the busiest weekends I have ever experienced up North. In fact, we were going to go to the State Park yesterday, but we got stuck in hour long traffic so we turned back and decided to wait and see what Sunday would bring. The North Shore is just gorgeous. Lake Superior is a very large body of water and it reminds my husband of being back in Greece since you can look out at the water and see nothing but water for miles. Here are a few pictures of Duluth, Gooseberry Falls State Park, where my husband actually said he had fun going for a hike!! and Twin Harbors which is a small town close to Duluth.
I will share the pics from Gooseberry State Park and the beautiful falls tomorrow.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and now back to reality and packing lunches for next week. I hope you enjoyed some of the beautiful pics of Duluth!
Awww..... I love all your pictures! You and your husband looks so happy! Sounds like you had a wonderful time in Gooseberry State Park and in Duluth MN! You put a smile on my face.... reading your blog and looking at your pictures! Hope you have a wonderful week! Hugs and love! 2009 days ago
Lovely! I didn't see much of Duluth when I visited it - My BFF from I-Falls was in the hospital there, and so we drove down from the Falls (we were visiting her from FL) and went directly to the hospital. They let her out for dinner because it was her 60th birthday, and we ate in a restaurant in a converted factory or warehouse??? It had been turned into a mall. But we did have a great view of the lake from her room... 2009 days ago

Always love to see lighthouses, and I can see the Fall color of the leaves. You both loo great and sure looks fun to me.. Thank you for going, too bad about the traffic. 2009 days ago

Glad the two of you had a great northern Mn. weekend. I grew up about and hour north of Duluth, we always enjoyed a trip to Duluth every summer. Thanks for sharing the great pictures you took---waiting to see the rest of them tomorrow Holly. 2009 days ago
Oh my goodness Holly, those pics are gorgeous! It looks like a stunning place. Sucks that everyone else also thought it was a good weekend to head up there, but it looks like you had a nice time anyway! 2010 days ago
