Ripple River

We took a trip up to Deerwood, MN to meet Charles Beck at the Ripple River Gallery. We like his woodblock prints, but love his carved wood birds. Charles held court on Bob and Amy's front porch and talked about his art.

Blues at the Barn

We enjoyed hearing The Pines and Ray Bonneville perform at the Red House Records Music Festival outside of Red Wing, MN at Hobgoblin Music.

Swan Song Gallery

I liked Earl Gutnik's and John Pearson's art at the gallery across the street from the bakery in Maiden Rock, WI.

Best Bread

We took a drive down the river to Maiden Rock to get bread at the Smiling Pelican Bakery.  My favorite kind is struan.
