Vacation Day 2
On July 24, we woke up to Chewie's birthday. Breakfast at the hotel, then on the road. First stop, Two Harbors where we toured the beach, watched boats, checked out the lighthouse, and Ted dunked Chewie in the lake. We stopped to get a bite to eat--where poor Ted ended up getting first cold root beer and then hot coffee on his lap. And because I was laughing so hard, the poor waitress that knocked those onto Ted started laughing too--which lead to Ted and the kids laughing hysterically too! Couldn't help myself--it was just too funny! Then stopped at Gooseberry Falls--so pretty! We played for a bit in the falls, but then it started raining. There was a bride there getting her pictures taken--the photographers' assistant was assisting with an umbrella! Returned to the van and proceeded to Tofte to get the key for our cabin. Stopped in Grand Marais to buy food --where I promptly had a heart attack over the prices! Onward to spot in the road Hovland to our cabin right on--literally--Lake Superior. We cooked out, played on the beach and fell asleep to the sounds of the waves lapping on the shore. Heaven!
