Greetings of the season to all our dear WP friends. Wishing you all a peaceful, healthy holiday and New Year.
We went in search of Fall; a local junket to Lilydale and Pickle Lake, parkland adjacent to the Mississippi in St. Paul.
Finally! The sack house on the Mississippi will be more than an historic footnote! The Saint Paul Municipal Grain Terminal, built between 1927 and 1931, represents what was part of St. Paul, MN’s great history as a river port city. Happily, the structure was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. Now referred to as City House, it abuts the Sam Morgan Bike Trail and will soon be host to the Red River Kitchen, an offshoot of the popular Republic Bar in Minneapolis. Fingers crossed, it looks like the food truck doors open August 1.
Today was an EXCELLENT day! In a random moment, I found myself hanging out with some electrical workers heading beneath West 7th Street in St. Paul, MN. They are doing their part for the conversion of the old Schmidt brewery. It is being transformed into artist lofts, studios for yoga, dance, pottery, performance and other artistic disciplines. The brewery’s vacant bottle house and brew house is being rehabbed to provide 247 new units of affordable housing targeted to artists. Thank you Steve and Brad!
Fleeting: transient – transitory – ephemeral – passing
The crab-apple blossoms came and went quickly in St. Paul. Miss P and her mom and step-dad were enjoying the moment and agreed to photographs…
Great challenge! I would add: “get me out of here!!!!”
