Thanks, John, for the chocolate shop site in MN. that brought back so many delightful memories of our early marriage years in Duluth. We'd laugh about the twin cities as our escape to the Bahamas! Eons ago, hubby was stationed in the Air Force and as a TX native, it was my first introduction to canoe portages in the wilderness, using an ice auger on the frozen lake while socializing with others on their snow machines. My teaching partner from Norway and her husband "adopted us" and introduced us to a real log burning sauna at their cabin. The wonderful people and nature experiences of that time are among the best remembrances of my life. Rhubarb gathering, scooping up smelt on their runs, making my first hand picked tiny wild strawberry jams, learning how to beer batter pike and celebrating a New Year's meal with friends who served a fish in white sauce instead of our traditional black eyed peas are just a smattering of the unforgettable memories of that state, it's wildlife and multi-generational families who welcomed us and taught us so much.
