Hackensack, MN: Welcome to small town Northern Minnesota, population 310 + 1. The dogs and I have been getting settled into our new summer semi-quarantine location for a little over a week now. Lilly the lab is overjoyed to have her own dock and lake for swimming this summer. I bought her a brand new throwing dummy last week and as far as she is concerned, life is good.
The little town of Hackensack is pretty quiet, especially now during the pandemic. It feels like the perfect place to distance through the summer. I hardly see anyone on my morning walks and I've noticed that the locals are being fairly compliant with mask wearing in the little town grocery store and post office. It's good to see people caring and looking out for their neighbors in this way.

Other than catching up on projects, my days are settling in to a familiar routine. Coffee and news in the morning, a walk and swim with the dogs, bike riding in the afternoon, lots of critter sightings, and beautiful sunsets over the lake for the evening. I am still missing Jason, but it looks like it will be a quiet summer at the lake.
