After a breakfast in the well known local establishment we took the scenic byway Hwy 35 following the Mississippi river with rolling road and nice scenery , it took us around two hours from Amery to reach this small beautiful town and settle down in C.G just 3 minutes from down town.
The town did not change a bit since we visited the place 7 years ago and we found getting around easy and familiar.
Along the river there are nice houses with boat docks across the street and the stroll along this way brought back good memories.
Close to the river is A must see National Eagle Center ,3 times a day a ranger lectures and shows the incredible birds ,it was very interesting to see the Eagles from close by even if they were in captivity.
When we visited Wabasha years ago we were surprised to see Kimono shop on the main street,we went in and had a long conversation with Richard the owner,at the end of the visit he gave Shula a kimono as a present (we could not believe our eyes,and he did not take NO for an answer),I decided to give it a shot and called him,he was happy to hear from us and surly remembered our visit years ago.
We meet for lunch and had a great time, we were very happy to meet Richard again and get to know Janith.
Anyone visiting this area should visit their place to see the incredible Kimonos and hear the story behind this unusual garment http://windwhisperwest.com/Home.html -Thank you Richard & Janith.
