Wow! That's quite the bike ride!!!
My aunt and uncle lived on the 3rd lake - one of the first year-round homes at that time. My uncle was also the Justice of the Peace of Forest Lake during the mid to late 60s. (He died about 4 years ago at age 91.) My aunt sold their home 2 years ago and moved to Ramsey to be near the grandchildren. I miss the turtles in the backwaters.
Okay - enough talk about Minnesota - it's makes me yearn for the "old days" of having a lake less than 2 miles away in every direction. Swore I wouldn't stay more than 5 years in Illinois and it's now been 34 and counting. (Time to set up the kiddy pool and pretend it's Duck Lake...)
