Air Conditioned City


What do we Rangers do when we can't take the heat?  We hop in our cars and head to Duluth, the air-conditioned city on Lake Superior.


That's just what we did today.



But, SOMEBODY in Duluth forgot to turn on their air conditioners!  It was almost as hot in Duluth as it was at home.  Luckily the restaurants, antique shops and malls are cool.





After stopping at a few shops, we headed to Canal Park where there was a light breeze coming off the water. 



Aerial lift bridge being raised to let "pirate ships" through.


It was so relaxing just watching the ships. 



BAM!!!   What the heck was that?!

They were firing canons  from the pirate ships!


The noise didn't seem to bother them.  More food dropped on the ground, I suppose.


Vintage sign inspiration.



 Pretty as a postcard.

  5. Ah, you were looking for dolphins in LAKE SUPERIOR when you were a child. All you needed to see was pirate ships!

    And, shame on me, haven't touched the new camera yet. I almost bought the Canon Rebol for Dummies yesterday, but after skimming through it, I was more confused than ever.

    I've got it ready to go. Maybe some pics on my neighborhood stroll today.
