On The Road To Minnesota

We spent half of October on our 13th annual Minnesota "Pilgrimage" to see Himself's senior family members, plus this time we were able to visit a friend who happened to be there at the same time.

Even tho we've been up and down the 'beaten path' so many times there is always something new to see.

Although seeing this driving up the interstate highway was a wee bit scary!  That load was swaying in the wind.

We left 80* weather... 

Lutefisk!  It's something I have never tried; I've been told it is an extremely acquired taste.  I'd love to give it a go some day.

Cute little roadside honor stand.  I love them!

My prizes...for less than one dolla!

Is this not cuteness overload?!?!?

Do you see that sign??

FREE!  It says FREE!!

Neither rain, nor snow, nor gloom of the night will stop Teri from partaking in free cuteness!

This stretch of Highway 61 reminds me of Scotland.

Magnificent weeping willows!

Himself for size comparison.  Yes, he's in the above photo too.

This trip we had a lot of dreich (rainy gloomy) days.

Just WET!

Which makes driving thru this stuff nerve wracking!

Love this old building that has been rehabbed.

Have you ever heard the song "Little Brown Church in the Vale" by Rosemary Clooney (aunt of George)?

It really exists.

"There's a church in the valley by the wildwood
No lovelier spot in the dale
No place is so dear to my childhood
As the little brown church in the vale."

And a wee tiny brown church too!

There was an area with these lovely tile silos.

This marker was in the grave yard of a small country church.  There were no words on it.

Just this relief of a Revolutionary patriot, a Civil War soldier, and a WWI 'doughboy'.

Some tall grasses around a lake.

And this was hiding in those grasses!

Why did the chicken cross the road?

To get to Minnesota!
