Gone Camping - Well, sort of

We drove past the frozen icescapes pushed up against the shore in Duluth,

and we arrived a place only two miles north of our favorite state park campground.

As recently as the past weekend, when the weather was gorgeous, we had planned to head to the North Shore to camp for a long weekend.

But the weather returned to its normal March Minnesota weather, and we flat-out chickened out.

We thought perhaps we would go for a bit more space. Our camper has heat, but it is not spacious. (And it doesn't have an indoor fireplace like our new digs!)

But we're going to hold to the remainder of the camping experience.

No TV.

All the music, reading, knitting, playing games, and cooking that we want.

We brought the snowshoes. We're planning to hike and explore.

Or maybe, just look out at the great lake outside our window.

Reading on the couch with a warm fire crackling in the fireplace and the winter landscape spread out in front of me sounds positively heavenly.

We had rain this morning, then sleet, and now snow for the past 4-5 hours. But tomorrow is supposed to be warm (45!).
