League game before our practice at Two Harbors CC. Ice speed was around 23-23.5 when we played but 25 at end of league game. Very straight drawing in.

Deck of restaurant

Dinner at the lodge with Miyo, Linda, Dave and Steve. Brady and Cristin joined us moments later. Dave is my partner and his wife, Linda, is our coach.

Beautiful sunny day
I'm watching the "North Country" (Duluth and up along Lake Superior) NBC station and got two pieces of slightly horrifying info: 1. it's going to be in the teens - low 20's till I leave, and 2. this station is owned by... Granite Broadcasting! (The company that used to own my station before NBC took it over.)

Tonight at about 7 is our practice, then Thurs @ 11 is our first game.

Still day on the lake this morning. My teammate and roommate arrive at 1.

The hot tub connects to another one outside. Gotta find out if they ever open it!

Add a waterslide, and this could be Fargo!

Woo-hoo fridge and microwave!

Lovely rustic room I'm sharing with other Seattle gal

Gas fireplace in hotel

In the lower left you can see ice starting to accumulate on rocks. Photo taken along Scenic Drive.


The view from the room - Lake Superior.

The main building of Superior Shores. I'm in a separate lodge down the road. (And this place is as lovely as everyone said!)


Duluth CC

The guy standing in the rings is '06 Olympian, Joe Polo. His clubmates, Jason Smith (Juniors Champ) and John Shuster ('06 Olympics), were wonderful hosts to me.

Tobie's in Hinckley was recommended to me by a worker at MSP. Excellent food - and a big bakery. Their specialty is a carmel roll - like a cinnabon, except smothered in caramel. It looked fabulous, but too sweet even for me.

I'm in Hinckley- halfway to Duluth.

About 80 miles from Duluth. I'm heading there tonight to try to practice or, better yet, play in a league.

Don't know if you can see it in the pix, but the road is 35 east and you take it north or south.

MSP

A dusting of snow in MN

On the plane!

Terminal C at SJC. See what I mean? Too much time at beginning of trip.

at counter. Northwest agent VERY nice about broom tube luggage.

The view from Super Shuttle. As usual, too many silly pix from the first part of the trip when I still have the energy to do this.

This is what I look like every morning, except when I also cry. Fortunately, I actually like my job.

This is a recreation 9 min later when I realized I had been so asleep I hadn't saved any of the pix I'd taken.
