Things line up eventually

You know how I am – if there’s a cemetery nearby there’s a very good chance that I’ll want to stop and explore it. And so that’s why we took a break from driving around some urban lakes in Minneapolis – the cemetery was RIGHT THERE.

And it wasn’t exactly like we ignored the lakes – the western edges of the cemetery offered a lovely view of the lake now known as Bde Maka Ska (Previously it was Lake Calhoun, and maybe that name change is in limbo.)

One of the last days

Of course, I don’t have any way to know this for sure, but I feel like this almost-end-of-September day was about the end of the summer boating season.

Barrel Woman Eats Lunch

What can I say? I was on vacation and just went crazy. Crazy! Look at what I did?! I took a photo of this woman, just because I could. And also because it looked like she was sitting in that barrel to eat lunch.

Or maybe she actually was in the barrel – maybe that’s one of those regionally-specific things people do in that part of the country.

Bar Fly

Here’s a street scene from a recent Sunday morning in downtown Minneapolis. I am sure the last of the night’s patrons hadn’t been gone all that long when I went by.

Water Crossing

The Mississippi River, as it flows past downtown Minneapolis (or, what I saw on vacation).
