Monday, January 29, 2018:  Mark and Paula headed to Duluth, Minnesota, to see ice along the north shore of Lake Superior.
Ice was pushed to the shore by easterly winds that day.  Paula was trying to figure it out.
Ice further up the shore had a character all until itself.
Water/ice stuck on almost anything it came in contact with.
Paula liked seeing inch-thick lake ice that had frozen like glass and then was broken as it was pushed ashore.
The ice came right up to the road at some points. 
Ice on the south shore of Lake Superior was thicker and more interesting in some locations.
Paula discovered an area where people put locks with messages.

It is not far from the Aerial Bridge.

One lock had been dated just three days before. 

Then it was off to the Dubh Linn Brew Pub in downtown Duluth.
It sure looked like a genuine Irish Pub.
Paula was busy kibitzing with the staff while Mark was calling Ireland to verify the authenticity of this place.
The answer was yes, it is a real Irish Pub....so they ordered dinner.
Paula went for Fish n' Chips.  Mark opted for Bangers (Irish sausage) and Mash (potatoes).  Now, that's Irish food.

The streets in Duluth had vapor rising from the city sewer system.  It reminded Mark of downtown New York.

The Aerial Bridge was brightly lit.  It stood tall and proud for everyone to see.
