MINNESOTA
"Land of 10,000 Sky Blue Lakes"
Greetings from Luverne, Minnesota
Minnesota a perfect vacation land, from the Lake of the Woods, with its fourteen thousand islands.  Rainy River and Lake on the north to the fertile plains on the south, from the rugged rock bound coast of Lake Superior, the jagged crags of the St. Croix River on the east to the Bread Basket of the Red River Valley; picturesque scenery, lakes that team with fish and an atmosphere laden with the fragrance of pine and balsam.

Coralway Cafeterias

147 MIRACLE MILE
CORAL GABLES, FLA.

110 N. E. 79TH ST.,
MIAMI, FLA.

I think I may have eaten in the 79th St. location 
when I first moved to Miami back in '78.
But it disappeared many years ago.

I don't remember the Miracle Mile location at all.

* Sunday Stamps *

My choice for Sunday Stamps this week is 
The First Day Cover from the 
1962 Seattle, Washington World's Fair.  
It features the Space Needle on the commemorative stamp.

I actually had the nerve to go all the way to the top 
on my visit to Seattle.  
It was exciting to say the least.

Fabulous Florida Favorites

 That's right, it's already  
Transportation Tuesday 
again.

"The seven mile bridge between Miami - Key West"
"The bus that goes to Sea"
  I remember my first trips to Key West.   
Those old two lane bridges were so narrow and scary.  
Especially when passing another vehicle, 
God forbid a Greyhound Bus.
Of course today they are all replaced with 
new modern highways and bridges.

  
Greyhound Post House on Overseas Highway, Florida
It is a beautiful drive.
You must stop and have Conch Fritters 
for lunch on your way down to Key West. 
And be sure to catch a Sunset there 
or on your way back up to Miami.
