Sundays in January are often used up with football playoff games, but the Vikings bowed yesterday. It was a nice day, about 24º when we left for a little walk in Como Park. The Prairie Princess (PP) and Pengilly Woman (PW) went along for the exercise. We had a good time circling the lake and chatting about life and nothing in general, enjoying the day and the bright sun. At the south end of lake on the dock where I stopped yesterday, we stopped again, for a photo op. I guess I was the thorn walking between the two roses.
Later at the spit of land that sticks out into the lake we stopped again. I was sitting by the lake with PW while PP snapped a photo. Then we walked across the ice to the pavilion and decided to extend the walk. We crossed Lexington on the footbridge and made our way to the Conservatory. It was the last week of the poinsettia show and there were lots of people there to take in the color and the warmth of the building. I have lots of poinsettia photos and didn't take any more today. Next week the winter show in the sunken garden begins. Maybe I'll get some photos then.
We stopped a bit for coffee in the lunchroom by the zoo. They close the whole facility at 4 p.m. so we had to leave and make our way back to the car by the lake.
A unique bike encountered near the entrance to the Como Conservatory. It's probably a Minnesota thing. I had to have a photo for the bikers in my readership.
