On my way to the Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner, I saw this truck parked outside the door of the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center. I thought it made an interesting sight and the sun shining on the packages helped liven up the photo. The words on the hood are Duluth Junk Hunt.
I’ve notice this tree near Portland Square on 12th Avenue East for many years because of its bright orange colors. A few years ago I interviewed some adults who were had a Portland Square Kids Reunion. They had many fun stories to tell about growing up in the area. BUT, they also told me that that tree ALWAYS was the first to turn orange in the fall.
I dropped my little dog off at North Shore Veterinary Hospital, which is waaaay out east by Lester Park. I drove by this doorstep and kept on driving, but then I just had to turn around. We just saw Minions in “Despicable Me 3.” It was the last outdoor movie of the year in Leif Erikson Park .
Duluth is full of fun sights and community member working to make it a fun place to live.
By making hay while the sun shines, I mean driving your convertible with the top down while you still can. I saw this car with the owner while on my way to my writers’ group. I thought, “Naomi, just concentrate on your driving.” But I couldn’t stand it because classic car owners just love to talk about their cars. And the owner was standing right there. So I turned my car around and drove over to the man’s driveway and asked him if I could take a photo of his car.I guessed that it was a 1966, but he said the rear looks like a 1966 but front looks like a 1962.
A friend and I watched a movie at the cinema on Harbor Drive. After the movie we walked by the Lakewalk near the hotels and the canal. When she first invited me to for walking along the Lakewalk, I didn’t want to because of the sub-zero temperature. But the more I thought about the more I would like to say I braved the cold. We both worse several layers of clothing. I put some toe warmers in my boots, while still in the cinema lobby. The toe warmers contain iron powder,water, salt, activated charcoal and vermiculite. (Someday I will have to research them to see if they are environmentally-friendly.) The toe warmers stay warm for 6 hours. So I now have them in my slippers as I post this. I’m not sure what the tempature was down at Canal Park, but it was very cold, my friend wanted to turn back for warm to Amazing Grace Bakery and Coffeeshop before I did. I credit the toe warmers for keeping me warm.
I’m not sure why all the ships are on the lake I can count six here.
According to the Duluth Shipping News: Please be advised that due to the cold weather, ice is forming on Lake Superior causing vessels to move slowly and become delayed. There are also 12 foot waves on Lake Superior making vessels take the North Shore around to their destinations. Itinerary information will be updated as it is made available.
The non profit Healthy Duluth posted signs at various locations in downtown Duluth to encourage people to walk. This sign by the main library downtown Duluth encourages and entices people to walk by letting them know there multiple shopping and dining opportunities within a 10 minute walk.
Notice the nice blue sky.
