First days at Grand Portage – Part 2

First days at Grand Portage – Part 2

We completed the classroom training and attended to Judith’s Dr.s appointments — one in Grand Marais, and one in Duluth for her elbow. Both Doctors were very pleasant. We went to the Grand Marais Pharmacy to pick up a prescription. The pharmacy is in a log cabin that also houses the Department of Motor Vehicles and a hair dresser! The decor is “North Country Sheik”. LOL.

The visit to the Doctor in Duluth was also uneventful — wear your brace for the next 6 – 8 weeks then come back to see me. Of course, Duluth is over 150 miles away, so we’re glad we don’t have to go there “too often”.

Today was our first day in the Historic Site. Judith was in the Kitchen (she was a kitchen wench) and Mark was in the Great Hall (he was a Senior Partner). We talked to many interested and interesting visitors. Here are pictures in our period costumes:

PS:  The gap between the vest and the trousers is INTENTIONAL!  That’s the way the suits of the period were supposed to be worn!!!
