Much of the historic or traditional arts is sacred, not for photography or display, so contemporary revisions are put on display, like this contemporary:
There was also an exhibit about the residential school system, an important exhibit at the time of reconciliation in Canada. I wonder whether we will begin a process like that in the United States.
I slept in the Waves & Woods bed and breakfast (where the eggs and the honey were crafted on site) in Little Current, where I went to sleep watching a sunset on Lake Huron. (Manitoulin is the largest island on a freshwater lake in the world.)
From there, a marathon drive through Sault Ste Marie, across the upper peninsula, stopping at Bookworld in Marquette (where I saw Lucie A.’s Locally Laid proudly displayed in the new nonfiction area). A crash through Ashland in Wisconsin swung me past former Duluthian Joe Croteau’s game shop, Ashland Fun and Games.
At times, the lines were up to seven hours, they told us — even with the fast pass, more than an hour.
This frustrated some of my family. Not me, though, my highlight had no lines — for me, the highlight was the duck.
Thursday night, we went to Azteca, which is (I think) under new ownership. I need everyone in Duluth to eat there, not even to eat there, just go in and order a Horchata. There are so few places in Duluth to order Horchata. I love this cinnamon rice drink treat.
Friday, I also visited the art in Bayfront, where I bought beadwork from visiting Ecuadorian crafters. And I ate at Duluth Grill, because every out of town visitor wants to eat there. I don’t much appreciate their ketchup-alternative, but it’s an event for visitors.
I visited Kathy McTavish at the Duluth Quantum Computing Project — there is still time to attend and learn from the master. And I visited my friend at the Caribou in Canal Park — Tall Ships is a boon to the Canal. At points, he was making a drink every five seconds.
That’s what the last few weeks have felt like — rushing around, summer is almost over. Festivals are coming hard and fast because so is Fall.
