Last weekend Rick and I took a little road trip up north,
to one of our favorite little towns ....
Park Rapids, MN
A town near and dear to our hearts!
As a child, Rick attended a church camp about 4 miles down the road from P.R.
All three of our kids attended that same camp through their junior year in high school .
Our family vacationed here for about 20 years as the kids were growing up .
We love the area and the cute little town, which is full of character.
I about had a heart attack when we saw this "Caribou Coffee" as we were driving into town.
As some of you may know I'm a big fan of Caribou, so this was a big deal,
It's not often you see this coffee shop north of the Twin Cities.
So BONUS for me :)
An evening walk along the storefronts...
All cars from the center street parking are long gone for the night,
the Ben Franklin store has been a staple for as long as I can remember.
You cant go to park Rapids without stopping for taffy at the candy store.
We have never been to the park theater, so we decided to attend a late showing on Sunday night... we were sad to find out they only had a 7pm showing on Sundays,
Still haven't seen a movie a the Park Theater :(
Fishhook lake's beautiful reflections
just the bridge
Momma duck and her little ones
making waves across a very calm lake
More to come on our little get-away....
