Capital City Bikeway – Jackson street
St. Paul city streets are hard to bike on because they are full of potholes. The sidewalks are full of tables and chairs and scooters and bikes.
The Capital City Bikeway (CCB) is smooth and there are is no outdoor dining on it and so far I have not seen any limebikes or scooters.
The Mississippi River at Chestnut Landing now has a beach. The river used to go up to the rocks but it went down after the last flood and enough silt was left behind to create a beach. The object on the beech is part of a rubber mask. People throw the strangest things in the river. Please don’t throw stuff in the river!
Water fountain – Chestnut Plaza
Many St. Paul City parks include water features. Even the parks on the river or on the lakes. The water in the park along the Mississippi River has been turned off for most of the season. Probably because of flooding. It is nice to see it on again.
Blue sky – Blue water Mississippi River at Saint Anthony Falls
The middle of the day on a sunny summer day is a challenging time to take landscape type shots. This is a picture of St. Anthony Falls and the Mills district in Minneapolis. I paid a visit over the weekend.
The hydrangeas are blooming everywhere. Most are white and that is alright.
Nice ride at 7th and St. Peter
The only reason this got photographed is because it is the closest shared bike rack to the building that the raccoon climbed last week.
