Our first "road trip"

You might remember about six weeks ago when I wrote about getting our Ulla back after seven and a half months in the body shop. After that long without our car, we decided we needed to at least take a little trip to celebrate this momentous occasion.

That very weekend, we took a little trip to Stillwater, MN. It wasn't exactly the cute little town we had hoped for (it probably was about 5-10 years ago before it got really touristy and they built a bunch of condos). Anyways, it's about an hour east of Minneapolis, and it was a great little getaway for us. On the way home, we stopped at the St. Croix Vineyards for a little wine tasting. It was really nice. They let you walk around the vineyard (which is also an apple orchard) and it was just the small break that Jared and I needed back then.

It's taken this long to post about it since this was the first excursion that involved revisiting my film camera, and I've only just developed these photos...
