The Boathouse, Beach & Pier at Glensheen

Pin It

We're continuing our tour of the Glensheen Mansion in Duluth, MN. If you missed the Flower Garden, Grounds, and House, you might want to check it out. Here are shots on the Lake Superior side of the property...

The Boathouse





The Beach

The South Shore. Canal Park and the Lift Bridge in the distance.

Perfect for a bonfire.

The North Shore.

Lake Superior looks very daunting and ocean-like...that's why it is called a Great Lake!

The Pier

Getting brave.

Being silly.

Love this patina.

The color palette is so inspiring!

Nature is the best artist!

The Characters

Getting a nice photo of this crew...

...is like herding cats.

Finally!

Followed by Dinner

We had dinner at the revolving restaurant on the top floor of Radisson. Yes, it actually rotates 360 degree while you eat! The fish dishes are delicious! And so are the homemade fries. Highly recommended!!

  2. What fun! I love the shot of Ron laughing. It reminds me of trying to take a picture of Jason. Always interesting. ;)

    I haven't been around much lately, but I have been reading. Just not venturing out of my reader all that often. Pinky swear.

  7. I've never been to any of the Great Lakes. It's interesting getting to see how beaches differ throughout the country (and world). I recently posted on mine and The Painted Ladies that line the shore.
