Lumberjack honeymoom IV...

Who says you have to pack all your "tiny" liquids and gels in ziplock bag, remove your shoes and empty your pockets to have a fun getaway? I've been fortunate to do some traveling and often I feel like I have "seen and done" more in other (long distance) area codes than the 612, 763, and 651's. My hubby and I have a deal. Each year for our anniversary we take a trip-just the two of us-and spend some mono-e-mono time together. We've been GREAT places like Boston and Martha's Vineyard (FYI-there is only ONE vineyard on the whole island-and it's not Martha's), Vancouver and Victoria, British Columbia, Door County, WI and this year Stillwater. A 40 minute drive port to port didn't even require a full tank of gas or a "potty break." In the time it takes to watch an hour long "T-V-od" program we managed to put ourselves right smack in the center of a fun, historic, riverside town. One Main St. houses more antique stores than even the heartiest of shoppers can handle. Quaint bars, like Whitey's, offer a friendly bartender and lucky pull tabs (I invested $10 and won $102). Eat dinner or lunch at Dock Cafe, not for the average fare, but for the great view of the lift bridge. Stop by the local apple orchard (especially after the first frost) and nab some of the most beautiful, natural, non-waxey apples I have ever seen. Have an old fashioned malt from the corner ice cream shoppe. Is this straight from the Andy Griffith Show or what? We stayed the Aurora Staples bed and breakfast and it was fabulous! We stayed in the carriage house which was meticulous and perfectly finished to fit the period and the gardens were lush and gorgeous. Our visit to the St. Croix wouldn't be complete without a stop at the winery to taste their signature blends and purchase a few for our own collection (no my Hubby's not drunk-just mid blink in the photo). Toss some clean undies in your sachel, book your room at the inn and make room on your memory card-Stillwater has lot's to offer.
