Up North

Today, we put Round 3 of chemo on hold due to my stomach pain and diarrhea.  I felt like a kid with a snow day!  So, we took advantage of this unplanned time off and packed our bags and headed North. 

We drove up I35 to Duluth for Malts at Grandma's Restaurant and then on to Bayfield, WI.  We stayed the night, walked along the shore looking for interesting rocks.  We watched the sunset from a beach of Lake Superior.

We stayed in a haunted hotel.  We took the girls swimming before bedtime.  The next morning, we woke up early to catch a tour of the Apostle Islands. We drove back to Duluth and stopped to ride the Timber  Twister, then home again, home again jiggity jig...

One of these sailboats caught our eyes.

My parents may have named me after this sailboat.
