this last weekend my husband and I took a quick trip to Duluth, MN to visit some friends. Having graduated from the University of Minnesota-Duluth I have enjoyed many of the tourist attractions and therefore avoided most of them this trip. We did grab a coffee and walk Canal Park popping into a few local stores like, the Duluth Pack. I searched out my all-time favorite Chinese restaurant. It had sadly changed ownership. The food was good but not the same. My fortune cookie seemed to show this sad fact.

Agate hunting was our weekends main activity. During college I spent many hours combing beaches for this interesting stones and hiking the North Shore trails. It was wonderful to get the opportunity to do those things again and have such great weather—55 degrees in March!

We are hoping to get the chance to take another trip there this summer and do a little camping.
