There is blue, teal, turquoise, indigo, sapphire, azure, sky-blue, navy blue, music blues, all shades of blue and then there is the Duluth Blue. (I won't be surprised if a song named 'Duluth Blue exists already.) When you travel right in the middle of USA AKA right in the middle of Canada +USA, your orientation is obviously inclined inland or towards the land. Yes, the great lakes are vast, I had heard but you don't feel it until you see it. Especially for a tropical bloke like me where lake means muddy - marshy - kinda dirty - stagnant water body. (Unless it's the Himalayas of course). To travel in land and see the whole buffing horizon swallowed by a lake is an interesting topographical experience. I mean I could bet it was an ocean and not a lake. A mammoth lake, at that.
Uncle Harvey's mausoleum seen in the picture is mainly used these days by ducks and divers seeking cheap thrills. It was built in 1919 after world war I as a mini dock to unload the load via conveyor belts but abondoned in 1922
Seriously? 1922? That's it? Not impressed. I guess you can never surprise or impress an Indian with history. (Insert shrug emoji) We have floating and sunken palaces. (Drops the Mike). P:S - I will go to Duluth or anywhere in Minnesota in a heart beat.
