Our lives now include living at one of the nicest senior communities in the USA. Rossmoor in Walnut Creek, CA. We will still travel in the RV but not full time.

We really like Duluth.  It looks like a tough and hard working town that has known good and bad times.  Ships coming in, bridges from Minnesota to Wisconsin,  a ridge left by the glacier that allows one to view the whole place, history and drama.  Did you know that if Lake Superior was frozen over,  only happened twice, but if it was-then it would be possible for every human on the planet to spread out a 12 foot square blanket and occupy it and they would then cover the lake.  Big lake.

Another description is that it would take all the other great lakes to fill Superior, plus 3 more of Lake Erie, I think.

Anyway we drove the scenic highway on the ridge and got these pictures.  Then we drove out on the spit that you can see with the bridge that lifts skyward so that the big ships sail in under it.  All the cottages are on one street.  But there are Coast Guard stations and other  Reserve buildings.  I bet that all the cottages were military housing during the war, it makes me think of  San Diego.

It has a history like SF in a way.  The mines built it up and the lake was there to get the ore moved.  The forests around here are just incredible.  I have never been anywhere so green except Taiwan.

Butterflys were everywhere today and 85 degrees felt perfect-cause the lake keeps the area cooler and not so humid.

    Thanks, Kristi, I might have ended up in that neck-of-the-woods! Always wondered what it looked like. Another story for another day.
