A Week Away
I just returned from spending a week in Minnesota. With limited Internet access, I was able to deplug and decompress. This was a trip for my husband who is from there. He still has a brother, nieces and now grandniece and grandnephew living in Minneapolis. His best friend from childhood and his friend’s wife live on a small lake up north. We stayed with them for a few days and were able to hike through the woods to view the amazing fall colors.
When we landed in Minneapolis and rented a car, we made our first stop a local coffeehouse (and this city has many choices). I can never resist dessert, especially when traveling. We have no food rules on vacation.
To see the fall colors we went to Itasca State Park where I climbed a 100 foot tower to view the canopy of bright trees. Amazing sight.
Our trip ended in Minneapolis. It’s a vibrant art city. Many of their old manufacturing
plants are now lofts and artist studios. I love how the architects built around the old structures.
