The sun is finally shining today, but the rest of the week has been rainy. Combined with strong winds on Monday, and Lake Superior was wild! Barry and I went over there on Monday afternoon to check out the waves. Seeing photos does not do it justice--being there, feeling the spray of the waves and the force of the wind is quite an experience!
Barry and I stopped at a couple scenic areas on our way home from Duluth a few days ago. Stoney Point is north of Duluth. You can see Canal Park and the Aerial Life Bridge in the distance. The weather couldn't make up its mind, as it was snowing and windy, then sunny, then rainy throughout the day.
Do you see Duluth in the distance?

It's a great time of year for hiking. The snow has (mostly) melted, the ground is drying, and the temperatures are comfortable without being hot and steamy like during the summer. Last week, Barry, Ollie and I took off to view the Cascade River Falls. An instant gratification hike, the Falls are only a short walk from the roadside.
This was the first Sunday morning I've been out this year that's been above freezing--34 degrees! It was cloudy and foggy, so I didn't see the sun rise at 5:45 a.m. Earlier in the week, the sunset lit up the clouds:
Quite a contrast to the gray, misty morning:
The water flowing to the lake has slowed down a bit. A log in just the right place allowed me to walk across instead of walking around on the road.
I briefly considered jumping across to this rock, but visions of landing in the water stopped me
As a stay at home mom of 4, life can often be rather mundane. I'll be posting here about our ordinary, every day life. You'll read about bargain shopping, eBay, fun family activities, recipes, the quest for healthy(er) living, and who knows what else?
