I love small towns. Towns that shut down on Sundays. Towns where “the usual” is a typical restaurant order and the waitress knows the name of every customer. Now, I know that small town life has its disadvantages (Darrin and I went to college located in a small town for 4 years), but there is so much history and community in some of those places, and leaving the city to visit these small towns can be such a breath of fresh air. Our past weekend was spent in small town America. We were in Wabasha, Minnesota with Darrin’s side of the family, and it was glorious to have no plans or schedules to keep!
We spent our first day exploring the little town and spending some time along the Mississippi. The entire town is simply charming.
For dinner we headed to Slippery’s, this fun little place along the river. I’ve never seen the movie “Grumpy Old Men” (add that one to the list!), but apparently there was a scene shot at the restaurant. The food was great, and I was feeling pretty close to Hollywood throughout dinner. Way to go, Wabasha. 😉
I’ve got plenty more photos to share from this trip, from cave exploring to wedding celebrating, so be on the look out for Part Two! And possibly Part Three or Four…there’s just too much to share!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!
