Saturday I got back from a short-in-time/high-in-quality vacation on the north shore of Lake Superior. My family has traveled to Duluth, Minnesota, and the surrounding areas several times over the years, and we love the place. Dry air, rocky coast, lush forests, cold streams, and Gitchee Gumee--the mother of all lakes. Bliss!
This trip we stayed at a wonderful old resort in Lutsen, which is about twenty miles down the coast from Grand Marais. While I wholeheartedly enjoyed my time away with my wife and kids, the need to create is always with me. Every evening we walked down the steps of our resort and enjoyed the expanse of rocky beach at our disposal. While my family relaxed in Adirondack chairs or strolled near the surf, I busied myself stacking stones.
That's right, the assemblage artist assembled stones. Hey, whatever floats your boat, right? Here are a few shots of one night's stacking episode, done atop a driftwood log.
