This is not the first picture I have taken of the boat landing and I am sure it won’t be the last. This year it was underwater until mid July which is unusual. The first bridge in the background is the Robert Street bridge which is on the national register and in between the arches you can see the Wabasha street bridge and if you look carefully in the arch on the far left frames the last stretch of the Smith Avenue bridge.
I am not sure if it is because of the heat or because I live in Minnesota but I feel an need to dip my toes in the water. The photo was taken in one of my favorite spots on the planet, San Francisco California. I think it has been awhile since I have taken a photo that I like as much or enjoyed taking as much as I did this one.
I took this on Memorial day. In this part of the country cold and rain on the Memorial day holiday are more common than sunshine and warm weather.
All types of boats park here. I don’t know if the parking is free. The boats make for nice photographs and there is almost always a tug parked at the Port of St. Paul.
I have to peddle fast to sneak in a bike ride between storms. These barges have been in the same place for a couple of weeks and a couple of tug boats have been beside them.
I went to do Duluth to see the small ships but all I got to photograph were some small boats. It is always fun to go to the lake but I have to say the did everything they could to make sure we would not see tall ships on August the 28th even though all the web sites said that they would be in the harbor. They were hiding.
