While we were in Hayward, we stopped at a neat yarn store in Cable called Pine Needles. I recommend checking it out if you're in the area.
After bumming around Hayward on Friday, we went northish to Red Cliff for a guided kayak tour of the sea caves of the Apostle Islands. Neither of us had kayaked before, but I think we really lucked out with a combination of good instruction and awesome, calm weather.

|Super amazing weather all around!|
|So amazing! We even learned about the geological formations of the cliffs. I'm smarter now!|
|Brian didn't want to stop :)|
We highly recommend Living Adventure if you are interested in an amazing experience on Lake Superior! Worth every cent!
On Sunday we headed to Duluth. Whenever we come down the hill and I see the bay open up and the sight of the water just HITS me and I feel like I'm inhaling a great big gulp of air after holding my breath for too long. It does a crazy sort of alchemy to my spirit, I think.

On our last day in Duluth (Monday) we hiked on the Superior Hiking Trail west of Duluth (some ski trail off skyline, way west?). The scenery was gorgeous, but the steep 4 mile hike almost killed me! Worth it though, and a great way to end my trip with my sweetheart.
