When the weather in Minneapolis is in the 60-75 range and low humidity, I try to be outside as much as possible because it is such a rarity. Scott and I hit the sidewalks at 10:00 AM and headed to the Linden Hills neighborhood festival. We met the Director of Art Cars and Art Bikes of Minnesota, talked to a Bakken Museum rep, and watched the toddler bike parade. We then headed west and north and walked through a quiet green space along William Berry Parkway and Scott spotted two deer. It was amazing to be so close to wildlife inside the city. We then walked through the outskirts of Uptown until we reached Lyndale and then we headed north to the Lyn Lake Street Fest. We saw poodles getting their fur sculptured and colored. We then watched a few songs by Koo Koo Kanga Roo. Of course we had no choice but to sing "What's That You Say?" the remainder of the walk. We stopped for lunch at Common Roots where Scott had his famous pancakes and 2 beer breakfast combo and I had a curried chicken pita sandwich. We then walked along 26th Street until 29th Avenue and stopped at Casa de Works Progress so I could pick up posters for Mississippi Megalops – A Floating Chautauqua. It was around 3:00 PM and we had made plans to visit Scott's sister in Brooklyn Park so we hopped on the bus to Lyndale and then walked a few more blocks to transfer to another bus that dropped us off about a mile from our home. Our loop was about 19 miles total of which we walked about 13 miles. Fantastic day!
I attempted my first 365 photo project in 2011. I made it to Day 246.
