Saturday, June 10, 2017:  Mark and Paula were wandering through downtown Minneapolis when they found this mother and child playing a piano. 
Yes, the piano was in the middle of it all and open for anyone to play.  

Then they were off to the Stone Arch Bridge over the Mississippi River on the north edge of downtown.
No car traffic here, just foot traffic and bikes.

Occassionally a few Segways will cross with young and old alike.

Musicians are there to make a little money too.

Mark and Paula became a little hungry after seeing all this so they stopped at a nearby ice cream shop. 
Some say Izzy's is the World's best.  Cones with two flavors, who could ask for more?  Great stuff. 

Back on the bridge they saw a horse drawn carriage with a tour guide.  What were they looking at?

This is it, the Lowry Avenue Lighted Bridge.  It changes colors from day to day to signify a community event. 

The Dynamic Duo headed under a part of the Stone Arch Bridge on a foot path.
Minneapolis was once the flower milling capital of the Midwest with Gold Medal and Pillsbury's Best.

Th bridge was nicely lit on the other side and well worth the walk. 

Mark took this photo from under the bridge back in June of 2014.  It looks as good as ever.

Nearby streets with Brownstone buildings reminded Mark of neighborhoods near downtown New York. 
Nice 75 degree weather and orange lighting.    

Quote of the day:    Ahhh...summer is great!   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
