We arrived at Camp Paradise in Nevis Minnesota. We pulled in about 8 pm after a 274 mile trip. The trip was smooth sailing and one road construction slow down. Not bad for Minnesota’s second season. We quickly checked in with the office and off to our camp site. Nice and roomy. It has plenty of room for our camper and my daughter’s large tent. So we set up camp.
We just bought a new pop-up camper about two weeks ago. It is about 20 years old but in good shape. Yes we set it up at home but it isn’t like being on the road. We got the camper and tent set up without a hitch. Then we headed out to another daughter’s in-laws cabin. We gathered around the bon fire and we tipped back a beverage of our choice.
When we were at the fire the loons were calling across the water. Their screeches filled the air. We were “Up North!” A term used by the people of the Twin Cities to describe the north lake country. A land of trees, wet lands, lakes. Also skies filled with sunsets and clear night skies, and if you are walking at night without light you need to listen to your footsteps. Your hearing will guide your footsteps.
We headed back to camp for a good night’s sleep. The week ahead
is going to be filled with time spent on the water. Wake boarding, tubing and surfing. Yes you read it correct, surfing in Minnesota.
