Winter in Minnesota can be feel long. It actually is the same time as anywhere else. It certainly is not as boring as those warm places. But we needed to do something different, so we went to the beach.
It looked a little different than it does in the summer. We managed to only fall a few times on the ice. There were no injuries. We then went for a hike. I noticed that my son was still in his pajamas. Well, at least he had a jacket on. For whatever reason they do not want to wear jackets anymore. Perhaps a resolution for the new year.
The trail is just as icy as the lake. But it was a brisk walk (literally)
We did see some deer. Actually there were like 10 of them here. They didn’t seem at all threatened by us. We had lulled them to sleep with our calm. (we were in the pick up)
So for those that wonder how we manage to survive here. I would say, we do more than survive. We even go to the beach in February!
