Saturday, May 14, 2016: 

Mark and Paula visited Galena, Illinois, about 20 years ago and decided to stop there on a trip to Ohio this year.

It is about eight hours from Brainerd, and three hours west of Chicago. 

Population 3361, Galena is a tourist town full of music and shopping, especially antiques.  Something like Stillwater, Minnesota.
Frank O'Dowd's Authentic Irish Pub was open that night.  Live entertainment was warming up for the evening.
Everyone was Irish that night and the food was too.
Then there was Irish dancing.  A real treat.

Quote of the day:    Two kinds of people: Those who are Irish and those who wish they are.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
