Back from my mini-vacation! We drove up along the north shore of Lake Superior. It was truly gorgeous. We had such a great time! Perfect weather, beautiful scenery, and it was fantastic being away from the city for a few days.

Spent a little more than I had planned, but oh well. It was worth it. Sometimes we just have to get away with a loved one and remember what life is really about.

We hiked at least a mile every day (not the easiest hikes, either). We visited one waterfall twice just to bask in its beauty. It's hard to believe that I was just there yesterday. I'd love to live up in that part of the state if the winters weren't so frigid.

    The first waterfall picture looks like a waterfall not too far from my parents' house where my Hubby and I used to go on hot days. I can understand your getting away and enjoying the beauty of outdoors. Glad you had a great time.

    We bought 5 acres that had a 100 foot waterfall on the edge of it. I can't believe that we sold it in 2000 for $40,000!

    Oooh, that looks so pretty. By the way, are those pictures taken with a new killer artillery cannon of a digital camcorder? Or something else?

    Thanks, all! It was a fabulous time.

    Ima Saver - I can't believe you sold it for that little either! :-o

    Broken Arrow, the photos were taken with my trusty Olympus Stylus 500 digital camera.
