Minneapolis fun on a rainy day

Day 110

LOCATION:  Minneapolis, Minnesota
CAMPGROUND:  Lebanon Hills Campground
WEATHER:  Rain most of the day.  High 78

NOTE TO ROCHESTER-AREA READERS:  We are hosting a Reids-on-the-Road  campfire drop-in at Oxbow Park on Saturday, August 13 from 4:00 – 7:00.  We are in site # 7.  Bring a drink and a chair.  Hope to see you!


We checked out the nearby Apple Valley Farmers’ Market right when they opened at 8:00 AM.  They had tons of beautiful vegetables, especially zucchini and sweet corn.  Unfortunately, I won’t be doing a lot of cooking in the next few days, so only bought some lettuce, sweet corn, red onions, and heirloom tomatoes. 

Just as we got in our car to leave the market, the skies opened up..  It rained most of the morning.  My friend Nancy contacted me to see if we could figure out some indoor activities.  They included a brewery of course!

George thought he should have received a bald-headed discount! 

We ate one of their wood-fired pizzas from the school bus food truck.

With full tummies, we visited the Minneapolis Institute of Art.  It is huge!

We enjoyed the Van Gogh special exhibit….

Back at the campground, prepared for another set of friends to visit. Dan and Joan, who had visited us in Michigan, joined us for dinner.  They brought some take-out from a  Mediterranean restaurant.

DINNER:  Hummus and chips, salad, and gyros.  Great dinner and wonderful conversation!
