The last real fun/warm weekend of the summer was September 20. I had done The Color Run (more on that later) and after washing up at home, I decided we should go back to Duluth, walk around Canal Park, and I would get the rest of the stuff for my super awesome Mail Swap Box because my partner was my super awesome friend Shirley and she deserves nothing but the best. BUT, we walked around first.
But the real treat was walking through all of the shops. Hands down, the shops in Canal Park are the BEST. All locally owned, all have weird things, which is perfect because I absolutely had to get fun stuff for Shirley's box. I now wish I had taken close up pictures of the smaller things but oh well.
As Shirley says, Matt should be alarmed at my excellent packing skills because I probably could get his body into a handbag. HA! So I had a good time shopping for her. I was going to get her another tube of Dr. Pepper chapstick but dammit if every store wasn't sold out. JERKS.
