Land of the lakes

I just had a lovely short trip to Minnesota. I never knew how pretty it is, how cute the houses are and how beautiful the hydrangeas grow.

It so green, cool and crisp.

These were right outside my hotel I could not have been more in love when I came out to catch my ride in the morning.

All of their plants are on steroids 

My sweet coworkers took me down for dinner by the lake because they new how much I love water and it was such a cool summer night.

I snapped a view pictures

Then we headed to find some cocktails and settle in for dinner.

Turns out it was ladies night so we had the ladies cocktail on special, Cosmo of course ;) 

They are known for their walleye fish that I have never had so naturally I had to try it.

Served with a huge side of garlic mashed taters yumm! There were a few too many bones for my liking but I would give it a try again for sure.

I decided to walk my food off a little and snap a few more pics as the sun went down.

What a lovely place to have in your back yard. These are the same lakes that you ice fish on ...I will probably not visit during that time of year since I get cold in 80 degree weather. It was a great night with a dazzling sunset.

I headed back to the table just in time to see this madness...

We talked and talked and truly enjoyed each others company late into the evening. I am thankful for coworkers that are so fun. Then they drove me around to see the little downtown and it all got blurry as I headed off to bed.
