On Wacouta street in downtown St. Paul
I just love this house!
Minneapolis is not far from St. Paul it takes me about an hour by bike from near downtown St. Paul. It is about 14 miles by bike path and 10 miles via Summit avenue.
There are people living in St. Paul who have never seen the stone arch bridge. Dudes! you need to get out more.
My husband and I saw the tall ships in the Boston harbor several years ago. They are indeed spectacular. The tall ships will be in Duluth Harbor this weekend.
We spent a few days last week on the shores of lake superior and we happened to see one of the tall ships. Last time they came to Duluth we were not so lucky. The city of Duluth has managed to make viewing the tall ships a bad experience instead of a good one which is why we are back in St. Paul instead of up in Duluth with the hoards of tourists.
We have so many wonderful city parks in St. Paul and over the years I have taken quite a few photographs of them. I like living in the city but I also like to be near lakes and woods and the river.
Here are some pictures of lake Phalen park. I grew up in St. Paul and in the summer we would ride our bikes to the lake and go swimming.
Have a great 4th of July and yes there will be fireworks in St. Paul. Legal fireworks even. The city will shoot them off somewhere near the upperlanding of the river near downtown when it gets dark out. You can view them from Harriet of Raspberry Island or from Kellogg park in downtown or from on one the many bridges that have a pedestrian walkway. They probably look good from the Science Museum plaza or stairs or even from Mounds park.
Walk, or bike or take public transportation if you want to get the best viewing spots. Here is a photograph from last years St. Paul fireworks display.
Watch out for small children hurling firecrackers, bottle rockets and cherry bombs. Even though they are illegal in Minnesota there doesn't appear to be any penalty for playing with them other than first degree burns, missing limbs and blindness. Homeowners should make sure they have outdoor hoses hooked up and the water on in case an explosive lands on the roof.
