Last weekend 7 of us friends decided to "tour" Bemidji.
It was great.....because some of our friends were in town visiting that we don't get to spend much time with....it was great weather.....and there was lots to do.
We started at 8:30 in the morning taking a walk at a local park and reading the historical signs.
Then we went and canoed Lake Bemidji for about a 1/2 hour.
Next we headed downtown for some free coffee, doughnuts, and "tourist" shopping. We stopped at the local chocolate shop, a gift botique, some sculptures, an antique store, and the local sights.
Then we took a "historical driving tour," where we saw Paul and Babe, Chief Bemidji, the old courthouse, the "Gold Coast" of Bemidji, and ended up at the state park
We finished off with a picnic lunch, listening to the waves crash on the shore and a Native American Flute concert in the background. Nice.
