Remember in my earlier posts about it being the start of low season and everything closing up early? Turns out, that affected the food industry as well. Since our deck had not one, but two grills, we decided it might be fun to grill something for dinner. We found a grocery store, strolled around for awhile, … Continue reading Chinese Non-Delivery
Having made the grand loop in International Falls in record time, we then decided to just go for broke and head to Canada. After a few failed attempts by Siri and Google Maps (of course it was their fault!), we finally found a parking spot near the bridge to cross the border on foot.
