We have travelled from Sioux Falls through to Detroit Lakes with not a lot happening, and then headed for Longville, Minnesota, (June and Ron's old stomping ground) we promised them we would look up the Pines Motel which they used to run. On the way we stopped at Ackley to take a photo of a Paul Bunyan ( mythical giant lumberjack).
We were lucky with the weather again, sunny periods as we arrived in Longville. Thought is a nice quiet little place, though not a lot to do. We weren't impressed with the public restrooms, no doors on the cubicles just a pink curtain across the doorway. We did find a good cafe called Common Grounds, a nice place but a bit over the top with all the paraphernalia. After leaving Longville we headed for our hotel the Super 8 in Eveleth, Minnesota. Definitely recommend this motel, clean, first class breakfast, even had a sauna as well as a hot tub and pool.
