And what a great sunset! This was actually from their balcony after we went inside. My aunt: Let me brace myself as there is a lot of wave action on this pontoon boat! But she got the shot! Our “snow bird” friends we met in Tucson came over for a ride on the lake and lunch. Good fun! We went on a bike ride to Stillwater, the birthplace of Minneapolis. It was a bit humid but I guess it is true, we don’t melt, even though it feels like it! We went to St Anthony Falls which is a national park site in Minneapolis. They no longer use the locks but this is one of the largest drops of water in the Mississippi. This is an old stone bridge and there is a park there as well telling about the history of the flour mills. We went down the river a bit to Lock Number 5 and enjoyed exploring that area as well.
