This past weekend's weather was the kind of weather we live for here in Minnesota.

Following last week's 7-day run of temperatures in the lower- to upper-90's, this past weekend's slightly cooler temps were a welcome relief, and -- with plenty of sunshine around the state -- made for perfect weather to be outdoors enjoying the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

My wife and I got plenty of time in the sun ourselves. Saturday night we made our way to Milk & Honey Ciders in St. Joseph for their outdoor patio session featuring Minneapolis-based band Bad Bad Hats; Sunday we spent the better part of the day on the water with friends boating, jet skiing and floating.

"The North Shore gets shared often here, but thought a few more pics couldn't hurt. Grand Marais," Reddit user Schwornje captioned his photos.
