Saturday morning we headed west to Duluth MN to meet Sandy's folks and had reservations at the Days Inn there. I found the staff here very, very friendly. I deemed them trail mutt approved!
|They can take care of customers and|
scratch me, all at the same time.
|The whole staff was friendly like this.|
|I got to lay on the bed with Grampa Ray.|
Gramma made him dress up for going to the symphony concert.
|I found friendly people everywhere!|
These were some Canadians, our neighbors to the north.
|You know I love some good ear scratching.|
|Sunday morning we headed to Canal Park to seek adventure.|
|I found walls to jump up on.|
|The bridge only had to raise up a tad for this little Coast Guard boat.|
|I managed to find many more friendly people.|
|These nice folks were visiting from Fargo.|
|Ya you can touch me too.|
|The pack took a cruise on the Vista Queen.|
This was taken off her stern.
|They went out on the Big Lake first.|
|We cruised past some salts anchored out here.|
That means its an ocean going boat.
|Then they toured the harbor.|
This was the BAIE COMEAU unloading grain.
|The BAIE COMEAU is a new Trillium class boat which came|
to the lakes this summer.
|My pal Terry is on this boat!|
|The American Century is loaded with coal.|
|She's a BIG one!|
|I think we missed him. Bye, bye. Hope we see you soon!|
|Under the Blatnik bridge.|
|At the DM & IR taconite dock. She's unloading limestone.|
|The CG cutter Alder was resting at her home pier.|
|Next the pack wandered around the shops.|
I didn't need no stinkin' pooch hitch.
|The Duluth Pack store is dog-friendly.|
|It's trail mutt approved!|
|Here I met the friendly staff. I LOVE them.|
|We went to see the Rose Garden to finish off our adventure packed day.|
