Day 12 - Rain Delay

Today continued the streak of cold and rainy weather. We got on the road today and within a few miles decided walking in the rain and wind, and nearly freezing temperatures wasn't going to happen. We gave our friend Vinnie a call and headed back to his grandpas land. We kept a big fire going to stay warm. Around lunch time we were able to get in to the cabin on the property and get out of the elements. Vinnie suggested we head a couple miles north up to Nisswa, MN for lunch. We accepted the offer and found Nisswa to be yet another nice small town filled with get away cabins on the lake for city folk.

In the early evening the weather finally subsided and the sun came out. Naturally we grabbed a fishing pole and headed down to the dock to try out our luck. We didn't catch anything but it felt great to sit in the sun, chat, and look out over Rice Lake and the Mississippi.

Tomorrow needs to be a full day to make up for only a few miles today.

Nothin' to it, but to do it.
