The family is in Blue Fin Bay on Lake Superior this week.
Blog posts have been sporadic, but with these surroundings, as well as, my very large family - siblings, cousins, aunts uncles, nieces nephews, you get the picture, it's hard to post.
Today we went sailing on this gorgeously ginormous lake which contains 10% of the Earth's fresh water. (Learning lots of fun facts about the region.)
Yesterday we spotted these two girls jumping off a pier into the cold cold water.
It's like a dreamscape sometimes.
Even these random sculptures on the shore are magical.
When traveling, I never forget to partake in the fashion of the region (read: I like shopping) - yesterday I bought these locally made Minnetonka mocassins. Some of them are still made locally at least. Of the massive wall of Minnetonka shoes at the general store in Grand Marais, I noticed that some of them were marked "Made in Dominican Republic" (!) but still some are made in here, I made sure the ones I bought were made in MN.
Local eating too: they fish this smoked trout and herring off the shore. It was delicious.
As dreamy and remote as we are, I'm still working every chance I get - answering emails and keeping up with the very busy time at the CV HQ. It's ok though because I do loooove my job.
But at sundown, it's all family time and for that I'm so grateful. :)
