LOCATION: Suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota
CAMPGROUND: Lebanon Hills County Park
WEATHER: Terribly hot. High 100+
I found a lovely trail around a small lake and got in a few steps before it got too hot.
When we got into the truck, this is what we found:
Off to near downtown Minneapolis where my brother lives. His house is near Lake Calhoun, now called Bde Maka Ska – a Native Indian name. We drove around the lake to admire the beautiful houses.
It is a popular place for hiking, biking, and roller-blading.
We went to a French bistro for lunch. We were able to sit outside as we nabbed a table in the shade. The food was top-notch.
Back to my brother’s house to enjoy A/C comfort and conversation.
He lives not far from where George Floyd was killed, and he, like most homes in the neighborhood, has a Black Lives Matter sign in the front yard.
We zipped back to the campground before the rush hour traffic. Thank goodness we had left the A/C on while we were gone.
DINNER: Leftover meatballs. I swear this is the end of them!!! Sides were salad and toasted pita bread (left from the night before) with some mozarella inside.
