I spent a couple of days in Duluth, MN, one of my favourite places on Earth. Or at least in Minnesota. It takes about 3 - 4 hours to drive up, so I only go a few times a year. There's lots to do - shopping in tiny boutiques, eating sandwiches as big as your head, staying the night in log cabins, making s'mores by bonfires, watching ship lights dance in the water's reflection, cutting your knees up on rocks, hiking with the moose and bears.... I stayed in the cities (Canal Park) for my adventures, but hopefully in the autumn I'll head up again for some serious hiking and cabin cozy-ing.
I blurred the background out for Lookbook, but here is a photo of me smiling. People always tell me I should smile for these photos! So here it is. I look like a chipmunk :3
A seagull. These things are beasts.
Whenever I leave Duluth I wish I could've stayed longer. But I also know that I'll always come back and it will always be different but also the same. I have photos of me hiking the same trails when I was three as I hike now, climbing over the same rocks, staring at my reflection in the same water. But at the same time, it's all changing...the people, the clothes, the seasons, the faces....but one thing about Duluth and Lake Superior is this: it's always lovely.
