After leaving my dad's house, we drove north to Duluth. The skies were perfect, which was a sight for sore eyes considering the lack of sun and warmth we have been experiencing this spring. Our plan was to stop in Duluth at Fitger's Brewhouse for lunch. Paul was looking forward to drinking their brews and I was looking forward to their wild rice veggie burger.
When we got there, we settled into one of their outdoor patio tables because we had Tchazo with us. Before we could order, a strong storm blew in and chased us out of our spot. From inside the foyer, as we watched the deluge and hail, we had to laugh at this perfect day that turned sour right as we needed it to be nice. We were hungry, so we ordered some food for takeout and brought it into the covered parking garage where we could eat overlooking the lake. As we finished up the food and got ready to leave, we realized the storm had moved out and we could salvage our patio and beer plans.
We took Tchazo on a walk by Lake Superior to get some of his energy out and let him play a bit.
Then, we headed back to the soaked patio and were the first to reclaim a table.
At long last, we got our tasting flight!
I really liked the apricot wheat beer.
Next on our agenda was a stop at Split Rock Lighthouse. When we arrived there we learned there are no dogs allowed, so we skipped that and headed to our final destination: Tettegouche State Park. Much more on that tomorrow!
