Sailor and Company RAW {America}

I'm slowly tyring to get back into these photo challenges.
Keeping up is even harder then I remember.
This week's Raw challenge 'might' be a little bit of a stretch.

We spent a long day in Duluth,
almost hit a giant black bear with the car,
and got home with just enough time to
smoother aloe on our backs,
and crawl into bed just as the booms
of the fireworks began.

So, you see, there were no parades,
no fireworks, and I didn't even come away with
a photo of a flag.
That, my friends is why this might be a bit of a stretch.

AMERICA:


Gooseberry falls {closed: no thanks to my tax dollars}

... let me explain.
Minnesota is CLOSED.
All our lovely state parks have ugly gates across them.
So, we did what any good AMERICAN would do;
we jumped over the gate and enjoyed the lovely
Gooseberry falls
 (along with about 50+ other people who did the same thing).




..... told ya it was a stretch.

{go HERE for more RAW photos}


Want to know what we jumped the gate to see?

Oh, my parents live in Minnesota and it sounds like everything being closed is such trouble! Good for you for jumping the fence - I think it's very Rebel-American of you. :D
