Thursday, we are in Duluth w/ Grangroths on our ride to see the 8 tall ships come into the Duluth harbor
Bottom one is the Europa which sails the seas of the world including expeditions to Antarctica, Tall Ships' races and long ocean crossings.
They have never been to Esko so returned on the North Cloquet Rd. past my old
elementary school and then into the Himango yard. Went to the door to say who was
in her yard and was invited in. The cabinets Bill made are still up, hard wood floor is
visible. She said she has her sewing machine in same spot Ida had hers. Walked to
look into the living room and there is still a drape on the door into my old bedroom. She said they have lived here 20 years. Ida moved to Superior when 75, so she'd be
95 now, 20 years my senior.
Then past the old church. Someone had been living there, don't know if they still do but the bldg. is showing neglect. Then to the Apostolic church to show where we were
married and past the Himango graves. Through Esko and pointed out the former
Kinnunen lumber. Stopped to eat in Cromwell, the restaurant owned by my classmate
Carol Trevena's daughter. We left at 6 a.m., returned at 8 p.m. and have some sunburn.
