Stained glass

This stained glass window is in the Miller-Dwan spirituality room. it could also be referred to as a chapel. It is near the gift shop and near the Center for Personal Fitness. I ate lunch at a cafe in the restaurant with my friend, then we had a meditation class in this room. It is a beautiful circular room.

St. Louis River canoeing

I joined the St. Louis River Alliance on a its annual Canoe trip and picnic at Chamber’s Grove to canoe down the St. Louis River and learned a little bit about the ecosystem. We saw a blue heron and a cove which will be rehabilitated to grow wild rice. We also paddled up to a woman’s house that had been flooded when the cliff on the opposite side of the river cause a huge wave to move through her house like a tidal wave. She spoke to us via a mega-phone.

“Clang, clang, clang went the jolly little trolley.”

Many people who live in Duluth are unaware of the downtown trolley. This afternoon was a lovely afternoon to be downtown. to the left of this photo is a butterfly garden that was emitting a pleasant fragrance. I noticed a couple Monarch Butterflies, but I wasn’t quick enough to capture and image of them. So I heard an electric guitar tuning up. The wind was just enough to keep it comfortable and not too hot. Downtown Duluth is beautiful.
