I like to hang out at Canal Park and pretend I’m a tourist. I don’t know the name of these bicycle carts but they look like a lot of fun. People ride them up and down the Lakewalk all the way to Leif Erikson Park. They may be named “surreys.” The name of the business that rents the bikes may be Wheel Fun Rentals.
The J.J. Astor restaurant on the top floor (16th) of the Radisson Hotel is a fun venue to watch the ships come in.
(We just got back from a vacation, but thought it would be fun to extend our vacation by playing tourists for a few more days in our in our home city.)
This dog is all wet because he and another dog took a dip in Lake Superior.
Lester Park is along the eastern edge of Duluth. It’s a nice place to go for a walk to cool off. Here a little doggie is cooling off in the Lester River.
This is near Amazing Grace in front of the DeWitt Seitz Building From their website: The DeWitt Seitz Building began as a warehouse and manufacturing site in 1909. The 1985 renovation created the DeWitt-Seitz Marketplace, a multi-use building with a collection of retail shops, restaurants, conference rooms, offices and other small businesses.
This photo was taken while I was in Superior, Wisc. I saw this from an alley. This is Superiorâ€™s first outdoor mural. It is a mural of theÂ Palace Theatre, whichÂ was built in 1917 by the theatre architects, Rapp and Rapp. Brian Olson from Duluth is the mural artist. The mural is painted on the back of the Douglas County Hsitorical Building Musuem which is located at 1101 John Avenue Superior. For more information visit:http://www.douglashistory.org
Sorry about this photo folks, my camera is on the blink and I bought a new camera and this is all I could upload for now. I don’t want the City Daily Photo project to disable my account, which they may do if I don’t post for 2 weeks. So this photo is just to keep my account active.
It looks like two red ships here, but it’s not only one is a ship. The one that seems like it headed straight toward the camera is actually a movie theater named the Duluth Cinema. The one headed to the right is the William A. Irvin,Â is a lake freighter which sailed as a bulk freighter on the Great Lakes as part US Steel’s lake fleet.
