  There are two seasons in Northern Minnesota, Winter and Road Construction.  Both are pretty dang tough! (Or so I hear about Winter)  Road construction I have down to a fine art.  We decided to tour the bay here yesterday and today took a tour of a huge iron ore ship.  They sure make those things huge!!!  They are 1000 feel long and can hold 80,000 tons of ore.  It's almost like looking at the Grand Canyon.  Just can't take them in. 
  Then took a tour of the Maritime museum.  Love those old ships. 
  After the museum, we went to Glensheen Mansion just inside Duluth.  It's a great old place full of antiques.  Not my kind of home, but a beautiful spot up here.  It reminded me of the Biltmore Estates in North Carolina.  Just somewhat smaller. 
  I won't belabor the blog tonight because there lots of pictures and little time left!!!
Enjoy!!
Love to All,
Fred
