We're here...

 So we are officially on vacation...it feels wonderful....we took off Tuesday morning...
 flew over the Rockies...headed northeast...
 But then the clouds cover was too much to see down any more...we arrived in Minneapolis after dark...tired, but excited to see our cousins and looking forward to seeing everything we could...
 Hank and Sally took us to Minneapolis...they live in a suburb outside the city...sally works for the Twins...so we headed over to Target Fiels...which is right in the middle of town...

 You can't see it here...but the wall is made of little metal rectangles that hang down and move in the breeze...which they told us is always there...it is really pretty when they move...it almost looks like clouds moving by...or a light show...see the trees are turning...actually they changed color a week or so ago...it's so darn pretty here...
 Of course I had to sit in the big mitt!! Notice all the layers of clothes...I had capris and a t shirt on when I landed the day before...not any more...it's t-shirts under sweaters under jackets...this California girl was cold! Even Don wore his jacket!
 Giving a high five fist to a great all star!
 Minneapolis is a beautiful city...I was so impressed...clean and friendly!
 We even saw Mary Tyler Moore...actually this is the exact spot where she was filmed throwing her hat up for her TV show...
 This is where Prince got his start...It is still popular...
We had a great time in Minneapolis...next stop was Duluth...I'll show you those pictures later...meanwhile Don is fast asleep and I had better get to bed myself...I am trying to used to the time change...the weather change...and sleeping in strange beds...but I am having a wonderful time...
Until next time...enjoy your day!!!

There is lots to see in Minneapolis. I'm sure Don was thrilled about seeing another pro baseball park. Love the picture in the mitt. I loved the Mary Tyler Moore show. Great statue.
Your fall color pictures are wonderful. Something we sure don't see much in So.Ca. Keep enjoying your trip and I'll be back to see more.
