Festival weekend in Two Harbors

There were a couple of geocaches I wanted to get in Two Harbors, but when we pulled in I was a little shocked at how busy the town was. And why were there a couple of firetrucks in the road? And 5 men wearing kilts and carrying bagpipes? There was a craft show and music at the bandshell and thousands of people in the streets. We forgot they had some festival this weekend but I had no idea so many people would be here! The road to the lighthouse was blocked so we ended up at the ore docks.
Conveniently there was a geocache hidden there, but I couldn’t find it and felt silly looking with so many people around. So that just made me a little cranky. I just wanted to leave. After spending 4 nights on the North Shore with hardly any people around, this sudden explosion of humanity was a little overwhelming. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough.
We took the scenic route home so I could pick up some smoked fish for dad. I ended up stopping at the wrong spot, but I got fish and he said it was good.
