July 20 2014 Rest Day Northfield MN

We had our rest day on the St Oalf College Campus in Northfield MN.  It is a beautiful campus located on a hill overlooking the town of Northfield MN. There are approximately 2500 students enrolled here.  Northfield is the site of the famous bank robbery by Jesse James. 

The campus consists of these beautiful sandstone buildings set amongst these huge maple trees.   Scattered on the lawns are Adirondack chairs and running between the huge maple trees are really fat squirrels.   

Ken and I got up and wandered over to the cafeteria and had a laid back breakfast. Lingered over coffee and then wandered on down to Walgreens to get a new razor.  I am tired of using disposables which give you a terrible shave and are scratchy. 

Bike cleaning was next on the agenda. SQUIRREL With this chore behind me the only thing to do was to sit in one of the Adirondack chairs read a book and have an afternoon nap.  It was pure heaven. 

Sunday supper was in the campus cafeteria and it was great.  This is a huge upgrade from the Northfield Middle school where we stayed in 2010.

The following week is one of my favourites with all of the bike paths,  the ice cream parlours, and of course the ferry ride across Lake Michigan.
