Sightseeing

The kids and I went over to Minneapolis yesterday and visited the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden. It was really hot but fortunately, there were shady places to sit around the grounds. If you're ever in the Twin Cities, it's a fabulous place to go on a budget--it's free.

                                They loved this giant glass fish!

                              This giant jackrabbit was also a hit!

                           This fanciful horse was my favorite.

Just caught up on your blog... As usual I love them all. Envy you for your visit with the grands and great-grands... I miss mine. I'd really like the sculpture gardens... my kind of place for sure!

Oh, I wish I had seen all this when I was there last year. That glass fish is stunning!

I had a great visit to Minneapolis about five years ago and this is one of the places I visited. This was a great stop.

What a great place to see. My grand kids would have enjoyed it too.

I like them all, but the horse is my favourite. What a lovely place to visit.

All three are very interesting...makes you wonder what inspired each one.

I love that place, and is it me, or is it always changing?

I love the sculpture garden. We used to take Daughter Number Three-Point-One there a lot when she was young. She particularly loves Woodrow, the horse you showed in your photos.

For anyone who hasn't seen it in person, it's made of metal (bronze, I think) -- not wood.

The garden arch along the south end is also a favorite.
