Summer Trip to Wisconsin and Minnesota (vacation??)
Back in June, my entourage and I took a trip to Northern Wisconsin and Minnesota. Some people would call that a vacation, but when you are doing a roadtrip to visit relatives, it's more like a trip. A vacation is when you fly or cruise somewhere warm and have beverages with little umbrellas in them.
Well we did a bunch of stuff and I took a bunch of pics. I will try to get some sort of order.
My mother-in-law took me to a place called the Yellow Barn. It was a barn full of stuff for sale. What was unusual about the place was that it was a combination thrift store/golf driving range/ and bar for old men.
Outside of the Yellow Barn
Old men enjoying themselves at the bar.
At a park across the street from our hotel. Did not use El Stinko's facilities but I don't think they will ever be sued for false advertising.
The Lodge at Crooked Lake was one of them.
Burnett Dairy . My kinda place! At the festival, they had lots of free samples, bands, contests, and lots of cheese etc. They even had samples of the cheese that they make that is $49.99 a pound. I guess I am not much of a cheese connoisseur because I would take some fried cheese curds over $49.99 cheese anyday.
St. Croix Casino. Because a family trip isn't complete unless we stay at least a few nights at a casino.
here's a little video I took while standing underneath the Lift Bridge in Duluth while it was lowering.
By January, I hope to post about our trip we took in August.
