A travel blog entry by connieandjimmer


We arrived before dark at the KOA campground just west of Bemidji, after crossing the very beginnings of the mighty Mississippi River that is a small creek here. The next day we met our next-site neighbours Bill and Karen Head from Winnipeg. After checking out, we drove into town where we saw the giant statues of Paul Bunyan (wearing a Shriner's fez) and Babe the Blue Ox, a little yellow submarine, and some fanciful statues made from scrap metal parts.

It has been a lovely day...a mixture of fishing, packing, reading/relaxing, packing, a pizza picnic, more packing, and more reading/relaxing. Jared & Leah went with Luke and Tommy this evening to ...

A Long Way from "Real Life"

A travel blog entry by lindaonthego


Although it appeared rough and windy when we looked out the window this morning, we decided we had to get out fishing, since there are only two days left. We talked the girls into going along, and since Chloe had been to Pike Bay twice already, she requested trying a different spot. So we started along Star luck. Moved to the opposite shore (by Marclay Point), and had very little luck (caught one perch). So we moved once more, to Dick's Bay, where we were at least ...
