October visit to the Blomquists’

From October 14-20 we visited the Blomquist clan in Shorewood, Minnesota. There were still some pretty fall colors, but we also got rain, snow (first of the season), and a “frozen mix” of both.

Since the airlines have instituted extensive virus safety measures, we felt safe to travel. The kids were all on school holiday, so we got to spend some time with everyone.

It was cold during most of our stay, but we still managed to fit in day trips to the Minnesota Institute of Art, the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum, and even a boat ride on Lake Minnetonka. We stayed at the Bird House Inn in Excelsior.
