Partying on the peninsula
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - The leeward side of the Detroit Lake sandbar was sweltering by mid-afternoon Saturday. Eric Doll of Perham decided to take a dip among the several hundred anchored boats, on what the locals call Cox's Point.
Maybe it was the heat getting to him. Maybe it was the beer. Maybe he wanted to impress the ladies. Maybe it was a combination of all three that made Doll decide to reach down and pull up a large clump of seaweed and place it on his head.
