Bud saw some foreign countries (and our 50th state) courtesy of Uncle Sam during the Vietnam War and I have been to Ireland (and England if you count Heathrow Airport), but we have only been to two other countries together and they both border the United States.
But that wasn't the first time we were in Canada which brings me to appending my #19 Sunday drive blog ---
Our hotel was about halfway along the drive also known as Scenic Highway 61. If I remember right it was in Tofte. What I remember for sure was that it was so cold we had the heat on every night. I also remember going to Bluefin Bay for dinner and having the most delicious fresh salmon. I almost passed on it because it was served with a citrus sauce and I wasn't sure I would like it. But oh my, it was wonderful. And what put it over the top was the fact that we were dining overlooking the huge expanse of Lake Superior as the sun set.
How could I have forgotten North Shore Drive when I first posted about Minnesota???
