We enjoyed a meal of appetizers and margueritas before the show at Applebees.
Then we headed off to the show.
We are not that good at 'usies'.
The show opener was a folk singer / guitar player who was great, then Garrison took the stage.
He explained why he was there.
The son of Garrsion's cousin, tragically died in an accidental drowning in Lake Superior in the winter of 2014, and the money raised will continue the work that this young man had begun in Uganda.
The concert was great. He entertained us in his typical style of limericks and song.
Instead of an intermission, he came down to the floor of the theater and invited those that needed to step out to do so, but the rest of us were invited to stand and sing along.
Garrison led us in about 20 minutes of song.
Hymns, patriotic ballads, songs by The Beatles, and more.
It was very enjoyable and the full theater of 1000 had a good sound.
When he led us in How Great Thou Art, is was truly breathtaking
and both Laila & I got goosebumps!
This was Friday night.
Now, fast forward to Sunday night.
(I'll fill in the gap later.)
Laila and I arrived at Blue Fin Bay for a one night stay On The Big Lake!
This inn is made up of condos that are privately owned & rented, but the rentals are run like a hotel.
We were getting settled in, listening to the waves and started talking about how anyone accidentally downs in Lake Superior in the winter.
Well, we had Google, so we started looking to see what the rest of the story might be.
