We're Hitting The Road Today~

Where are we going?
Anybody's guess...
Do WE know?

We are kind of nomadic like that..
We get in the car,
load our bags in..
and off we go...

The car is serviced and
The house is house-sat,
The laundry is all done
and I even scrubbed
and polished the hardwood floors
before we left?
Well, I didn't want the housesitter
to think I was lazy!

too tired to move-
We are off!

We usually head North
but I am thinking this time we
will head West and go
along the
Mighty Mississippi for a bit

I love the paddleboats
on the river.

and then we will follow the river up
to the Superior/Duluth area.

We love it up there.
My soul always longs for
Big Water.
If I can't have the ocean,
I want the lake..
Big Water..
The place of legends..
We hope to see lots of
Fall color like this...
When we get to Duluth I want to
see Glensheen
We made this trip with my
daughter-in-love and MamasBoy
a few years ago.
She spent summers up there
with her family
and I was fascinated by
and the story of murder and
intrigue that is part and parcel
of her history.
Let's hope I don't have
to commit murder to
be able to visit here again...
agreeable to visit
spooky places.

I'll let you know
if we go~
Watch for smoke signals..
just in case I don't have Wi-Fi!

Have a safe and happy trip! It looks beautiful and I'm sure it is if you have any fall color. Take pictures.

Jettie said...

I hope you told the housesitter that you wanted the house to look the very same when you got back, no stains on those hardwood floors, no dirty dishes, no glasses setting on the good furniture.
Enjoy your trip. Want to hear all about it when you return...

Diana, how fun. I would love to just get in the car and go with no plans. Have fun and I will be watching for those smoke signals.

I am the same way about water. It soothes my soul...the closest I have gotten to the lake in the last 12 years is my bath tub. I'm over due.
Have a wonderful time and get some the way you carry on hitting the road is the only way you are gonna rest.
I'm watching for the smoke signals

That sounds so very fun Diana! I love your spunk for life too. You have an amazing energy, and sounds like you found the perfect soul mate who can keep up with you. Safe travels.

Sue said...

I always seem to show up on someone's blog just when they are leaving town!!,......bad timing I guess....I have missed reading about "Sweet Cheeks" and hope now that my move is over and my pool is built and Miss B and mother have gone back to Jersey I may now finally have time to read my blogs.......I hope you have a wonderful trip and enjoy the beautiful fall weather......Hugs from Georgia Sue......

Suzie said...

What a fun sounding trip!

Debbie said...

I have absolutey no idea where my comment went?????
So here goes another:
I wish my hubby would just pack up our vehicle and take me somewhere...anywhere!
What a blessing your hero is for you Diana.
You will see lots of Fall color. We went to Traverse City on Saturday, and the colors were just gorgeous!!
Have a safe, and fun trip.

Karen said...

Tell us all about Glensheen because I am a fan of spooky stories!

Donna said...

Hope you have a great trip, Diana! While you are on the road, why don't you just trek a few miles further west and come and visit us?! I promise that there never would be a dull moment (ha, ha! But how could there be, with the two of us together?! Hope you get some great fall colors, I am missing fall back in the Midwest!

A Cottage Muse said...

Jim and I are almost at the point where we can do that...can't wait!

That looks like a great route to take. The fall color is spectacular. I hope you see a lot of it and maybe even a ghost or two. Have fun!
