Agate Hunting on Lake Superior
On this particular day, my mom, brother Aaron, Isabella, Kaitlyn and I all went down to Lake Superior (Duluth's claim to fame is that it is the largest freshwater port in the world - last I heard anyway).
My family are all avid agate hunters (myself the only exception as I have found maybe three agates in my whole life).
Lake Superior agates are prized for their color and marbling and are found all over the Duluth area.
While they all hunted for agates, Isabella and I enjoyed the beautiful sunny weather on the beach and walked the boardwalk ("lakewalk") down to Leif Erikson Park and rose garden.
I'm working on embedding a photo slideshow soon to show more photos from the trip. Stay tuned.
