CVH wanted to go to Minneapolis for our anniversary.
They have a convenient train there. Takes you from the airport downtown (and other places).
Our hotel was pretty conveniently located, but there were portable police cameras parked out in front.
Seems likely there were there in response to a problem. Anyway, the Blue Line train was also able to take us to the Mall of America. If you lived through the 70’s, you recall that indoor shopping malls sprung up like mushrooms. Although few of them are still going concerns, this giant mall from 1992 seems to be chugging right along. There is a large book store, rollercoasters, and an aquarium. Alas, the Prairie Home Companion store is no more.
We walked along the riverfront to the falls. There are some cool bridges over the river.
The little tiny dots on the bridge are a group of young men out for a run. They had team uniforms on and spoke German. Maybe they were in town for a soccer game?
The old railroad bridge below is an now a pedestrian bridge.
We visited the flour mill museum, which was a lot more interesting than it might sound. CVH was taken by the story of Bisquick.
That evening we toured the Walker Art Center, an impressive modern art museum. It has an extensive sculpture garden with a couple of iconic items.
