On the Town - Part I

Minneapolis is "the big city" for us now. We lived there for years, but now have lived away, in a small town, for a longer time. It is a "partner" to Saint Paul, also known as "The Twin Cities" (or as we call them- Sodom and Gomorrah.)
Regardless of my hick-town phobias, the riverfront district has its charms. Once a milling and industrial area, the river in downtown Minneapolis was all but hidden from the daily lives of its citizens. It has undergone extensive restoration and renovation, it is now full of walkways, vistas and other civilized attractions.

Our equine friend (pictured above) was hard at work while we strolled the stone arch bridge before a delightful dinner at Spoonriver, followed up by music and dancing at a nearby club.

The Spring social season has arrived, more tomorrow...
