My weekend report....

My weekend report
By Remington

On Saturday, after sitting on the deck having breakfast, Mike said how would you like to road trip today in Billy the Bus?  I said "you bet!"  I hurried and gathered up some of my toys and we headed out.  I was so excited and happy when we started out that I just HAD to give Mike a big old Newfie kiss! 
He said thank you....
Then we were on our way.
We went for a drive along the
North Shore in MN.
That is by Lake Superior.
We drove and drove -- looking at all the beautiful trees!
We stopped by Lake Superior and had lunch.
Our view was so nice.
We saw the lake....
and BIG boats....
We went to a place called
Split Rock Lighthouse....
And a nice man took a picture of all three of us by an anchor....
We went through tunnels....
We went all the way to a town called
Silver Bay, MN.
On the way home we felt the need for something sweet so we got to stop by Beth's favorite place....
Beth went in and got pie for us
and we ate it in Billy the Bus. 

They have the best pies EVER at Betty's Pies
 So if you ever go by there be sure to stop in....
you won't be sorry!
(Hey, that was kinda like a commercial)

AND on the way home I thought I could get Mike to stop at the casino because of what the sign said....
but NO!
So I just waved as we went by....

It was a great road trip -- and a great day.

Later -- Remington --
The Traveling Newf
-- out!

Lake Superior is beautiful! You were so sweet in giving Mike a lick!

Remington -
You sure are turning into the traveler! I bet you dont get sickies in the car. On long rides I get sickies... I wonder if I had my own Billie the bus if I would still get sickies. Billy is like a house on wheels, not a car!
Hope you had a great day out and about with your Mom and Dad.

But it is too bad you didn't get to go to the casino - oh well, that is a good way to save money at least!

I think this was Travel To Pie Weekend, Remington! You took Billy the Bus and found great pie in MN and my friend Prinnie took the dog house to a CA mining town and had apple pie there! It was like a national pie holiday! We didn't have pie but dad made the blueberry buckle recipe that Khyra's mom shared...with ice cream!

Cheyenne -Millie said...

That sounds like a wonderful great road tripn! Like your pictures! And we like especially like your group picture!

Kathy said...

Cool road trip, Rem!!
Wow you get to sit 'shot gun' on the Billy bus?!
Mom never lets me, I have to sit in the back seat of the truck! Oh well, I can move around back there, she can't up front!
Amazing to think a lake needs a lighthouse, cool pics!
Mom saw a Newfie puppy in Halifax, Nova Scotia last week. Only 13 months old, pure love and fluff, she said! What about me?! Aren't I pure love, too?!
