In Minnesota, when people say they are heading up to the North Shore that can only mean one thing. It means Lake Superior. Maybe it’s Duluth or perhaps further up the shore to Two Harbors, Lutsen, or beyond.
This weekend my husband’s cousin got married at Duluth’s Historic Union Depot, meaning we got to take a quick little getaway.
The Depot features a huge collection of historic and restored train cars in the lower level, which we got to explore during the social hour between ceremony and reception.
Whenever I’m in restored buildings I can’t help but appreciate all the work that went into the process and all the history that’s contained within.
We were able to stay on Saturday night, meaning I had a chance for an early Sunday morning run in Duluth, home of Grandma’s Marathon.
It’s a hilly city rising up from the lake, but I spent most of my time on the flatter shoreline paths. So beautiful.
Now it’s Monday and back to normal. We’ve got hay waiting to be cut and chopped and plenty of other summer projects to take care of before fall arrives. I don’t know that we ever catch up with everything that should be done, but it’s still wonderful to take a day and “get away from it all.”
