Summer Update: Our Honeymoon

After our beautiful wedding, we headed off into the darkness in this old car that David had managed to secure for our get-away car. It was beautiful (there is a picture of it in the wedding slideshow in the previous post) and it even matched the color of our wedding! However, it didn't really like driving down the road so we barely made it back to the owner's place where our real car was parked! Phew! The owners of the car also worked with the newspaper so they took some pictures of us and we found ourselves in the paper a few days later! So that was our first adventure as a married couple. Now...on with the honeymoon!

Our first honeymoon destination was the beautiful city of Duluth, Minnesota, on the shores of Lake Superior--one of the Great Lakes. What a stunning city!
We enjoyed time on the beach, leisurely strolls on the boardwalks around the lake,...

A boat ride tour of Duluth harbor (very interesting!)...

...Spotting a pirates ship! Ahoy matey!

Enjoying the gorgeous view out our hotel window, 

Basking in God's breath-taking creation, 

meeting a few challenges...can you say "ouchy thigh muscles"?

But it was worth it! 
Split Rock Lighthouse
More to come!...
