Saturday, July 9, 2016:  It was off to The Fort Steak House at Fort Ripley, Minnesota, about 15 miles south of Brainerd. 
Maranda Riley was the waitress that night....a real live wire. 
(l-r) Mark and Paula dined with friends Nancy and Darryl Briley that night.  Paula became a friend of Nancy at grade school in Brainerd.
Darryl was a high-powered financial number cruncher until his retirement in 2015. 
The special on Fridays at The Fort is chicken dinner, a favorite for locals and visitors alike. 
Paula "Gilligan" Persons, with her red hair, was having a wonderful time piloting the Minnow on Gilbert Lake that night just before sunset.
An uncharted island is out there somewhere!
Plenty to see including fish being caught.  Looks like a Northern. 
Paula wishes she could catch fish like that, but she is not allowed to while SCUBA diving....DNR rules, darn!
It was a nice night for youngsters to cool off in the lake too.
There seems to be no end to fun with water skiers out for a thrill.
Yes, they even take to the air at times.

Quote of the day:    Enjoy the summer while it lasts.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
