What more can a girl want? Company of loved ones, breakfast of scrambled eggs, hash browns and English muffins, with hot tea and to top it all -the view!!
Pool on the beach…seamless- where one ended the other began.
One can tell by the number on chairs on the deck, that it was quite a popular place to rest and relax.
Tranquil - beautiful day

One of the most easily recognized monuments of the city is Arial Transfer Bridge -built in 1905 as a transfer bridge.
In 1929 the bridge was modified - the gondola was removed, the height of the top span increased and structural supports incorporated- into the present avatar.
Another gem in Duluth is Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory, famous for it’s migratory hawk watch. In fact, Hawk Ridge (refer to Neela Asman shot from the observation point) is recognized by the Audubon Society. Hawk Ridge acts as a “funnel” for tens of thousands of migratory hawks, eagles and other birds of prey.
Though we missed the annual migratory flight, I was pleasantly surprised to catch him looking down with an attitude of “ I am lord of all I survey!”

Even though it got a bit cold at night, we slept with the bay windows overlooking the lake open (there was fire burning in the fireplace at night to keep us comfortable), the rising moon reflecting off the waters of Lake Superior and the sound of waves breaking across the shoreline lulled us to sleep every night.
In the morning we woke up to spectacular views of the sunrise over Lake Superior; the largest and cleanest freshwater lake. The first breath taking sunrise hooked me into getting up early in mornings.

On the first leg of our vacation we drove along the St. Croix Scenic Byway. St. Croix Scenic Byway rambles along the alternatively wild and pastoral St. Croix River, which is also a National Scenic River way.
We drove through many charming historic towns, explored state parks and strolled through many-a-downtowns with character and architecture of decades past.
Even though we were visiting in late October, we caught the tail end of the fall colors. There is something poetic about the changing colors. It seemed as if some one had lit a fire with all these colors vividly shining through!

I felt so much at peace, one with nature and maybe also with god.
