I recently vacationed in Two Harbors, MN with my wife, my sister and her family.
In Duluth at Nokomis restaurant, we met and spoke with Walter Mondale who was on a fishing trip with his friends. He was gracious and friendly. He looked and sounded great.
The woman running the Chamber of Commerce visitors’ office in Two Harbors described the weather there as “beastly hot.” It was 80 degrees there and over 100 degrees that day in our hometown, Kansas City.
Among the sights we saw was a mother duck teaching her six offspring to dive under the water. Five did well, but one duckling just a little apart from the rest bobbed under and popped back up again like a cork. Mom never caught on.
One of the motels had a sign offering color cable television. We did not stop to ask about the color of the cable.
Although I already knew about butter heads and pronto pups, I learned about other cultural experiences available at the MN State Fair. I found out you can order cold chocolate-covered thick-sliced bacon, sweet corn ice cream with bacon/butter sauce and deep-fried dill pickle chips. If that makes you thirsty, you can amble over to the all-the-milk-you-can-drink dairy bar.
Luckily for my cholesterol count, the fair was not operating while we were there. What vacation memories would you like to share?
