After the kids had all left and went back to their perspective homes,
Rick and I had 2 days to ourselves...
Rick wanted to show me one of his favorite up north courses
and his precision putting techniques
I used to golf but now I watch ... and cheer him on
After golf we headed back to the cabin for a swim, then to Dorset
(a few miles down the road from Park Rapids)
Dorset is a cute little town made up mostly of 5 restaurants.
We like the Dorset House.
Walker is only about 30 miles from Park Rapids,
It's a beautiful town that sits on the SW corner of Leech Lake.
(third largest lake in minnesota)
We asked ourselves...."why have we never come to Walker"
We sat at the marina for awhile watching the boats and seagulls....so pretty,
We walked up and down the main street, checking out the uniques shops
Check out the thermos made into a lamp
remember these....brought back memories for us
Our big purchase, a pair of Keen's Mary Janes for me
and some comfy Columbia shoes for Rick
Hand made soap in about any scent
On the way back to the cabin we stopped in Akeley to say hi to this guy.
Worlds largest kneeling, Paul Bunyan is 20 ft tall and was built in 1984
We really enjoyed the town of Walker and will make it one of our "shopping days" when we vacation in the years to come. I might add we enjoyed a breakfast sandwich at Hardees, Rick's favorite fast food in the whole world, Rochester does not have one, so this was quite the treat :)
