Yesterday we drove the twisty Minnesota state highway 1 from the north shore through Ely to Tower and the Fortune Bay Resort on Lake Vermilion. I had a 2pm tee time on the Wilderness course, while the girls spent most of the evening in the swimming pool. We had dinner in the casino cafe, which makes a mean batch of cheese curds.
The hotel is adding 58 rooms and we had an older room right next to the action. We moved rooms today, so hopefully this one will be better. I played another round this morning at 8am, the girls are at the Heritage Center now and we leave for two different Soudan Mine tours in an hour. More video poker action tonight (I’m down $8) and then we head home tomorrow.Originally published by DK on June 18, 2007 at 10:32 pm
