Duluth and more goodbyes

This weekend Curtis and I got to spend in Duluth (for those of you who don't know, that is where I spent the first 16 years of my life). Duluth is a very beautiful city, right on Lake Superior. I have been promising Curtis a trip there since we met - finally we made it!

We stayed with my grandparents (the Garnetts)- well very special friends of mine who have been like grandparents to me for as long as I can remember...we stayed with them and hung out with them most of the trip. Sat evening we drove up the North Shore a bit - and as you can see in the pictures - the shore had HUGE chunks of ice, a very impressive shoreline.

Today - Sunday - we went to the church I grew up at, it was so good to see so many old friends again...I told a number of people 'that church was like a second home to me', I guess that comes with the territory of being the pastor's kid :) Of course it is Sunday so we had brunch - a special treat we went to the Top of The Harbor. This is a restraunt the spins in a circle (takes about an hour) so in the time it takes to eat your meal you can see all of Duluth and the harbor.

It was a much overdue trip to Duluth, but so fun! I wish we could have stayed longer, but I am so glad we finally got to go. Curtis agreed, Duluth is a really amazing city!


  1. Wow standing in the middle of ice without any coats?! I'm guessing it was warmer than it looks. It seems like you guys had fun! Pretty cool place. :)

  2. And we enjoyed the time spent with you before you start the "Great Adventure". Proud and happy to be your "Grandpa" and will make sure you are in my prayers every day.
