Just Returning from Vacation- Catch-up News

In case you had not noticed, there has not been any posting in the Edge for about a week. We were on vacation visiting B&Bs and in other part of the state. First night was at the Water Street Inn in Stillwater, a great place to stay and we recommend their dining room. While in Stillwater we dropped-in at the River Town Inn, the Elephant Walk B&B and Ann Bean Mansion. Only sorry we did not have enough time for all of Stillwaters fine B&Bs. Next stop was a real treat-great dining and lodging at New Prague famous but soon to close Schumacher's Hotel. Our return trip included a stop at Hibbings newest B&B the Mitchell-Tappan House ( no web site yet but the phone number is 888-662-3862). And our last night was spent at Ely's Blue heron B&B which as always was outstanding. We highly recommend all these B&B or for that matter all the B&B through Minnesota who are members of the Minnesota Bed and Breakfast Association.

We have now returned to the Gunflint and our wonderful part of the planet.

According to our neighbors, for the past several days it has snowed each morning. Three mornings ago, depending upon who I talked to, there was anywhere from four to eight inches of new snow on the ground. During the days it melted. This morning out my window I see there is just a dusting of snow and the temperature is 29 degrees. Still a few patches of deeper snow lingering in the woods.

News from the Gunflint Trail Association (the Trail business group)- Gunflint Trail Association Spring Picnic on Monday the 2nd of May. Food, beverage and utensils will be provided so just bring yourself to Gunflint Pines at 7:00 PM for some good old fashioned neighborly fun. Dress is casual and family and friends are invited.
