Road trip

On Sunday I skipped church and went on a road trip with my friend from the book club (Shy Guy) We went North to the mighty town of Duluth. We went and toured two things while there. We went to the Aquarium, which was fun. We were there for about two hours and saw some neat stuff.
After that we went and toured some big mansion called the Glensheen. I think I liked the Glensheen tour better then the Aquarium. That also took about two hours as we had a tour guide that showed our group all kinds of stuff. I have to say, I did gasp when the guide pointed out in the library a collection of first addition Edgar Allen Poe books. I got tingly. I guess you can take the girl out of the library but can't take the library out of the girl!
(Sorry but the pictures are not in order)View of Lake Superior from the beach at Glensheen.

This is the front/back door of Glensheen. Front door if you came by boat, back door if you came by carriage.

We did go over this bridge.

Some fish, just in case you can't tell.

Fake fish.
We both want to go back to Glensheen in the spring/summer as it looks like the gardens are
grand. And there are some other things that we would like to check out.


  1. Finally !! I thought you scared him offfor good lol glad you had a nice time

  2. Duluth is a beautiful city. Superior, not so much. Did you visit the old downtown area? I can't imagine those streets in winter.

  3. looks like you had a great day for a road trip! Didn't we stop for gas in Duluth when you took me to the Falls? Rose

  4. Looks like you had a good time!

    I'm hoping to tour the Margaret Mitchell house this spring.
