5th Avenue West. Everyday lots of children walk by.
This little flag near the side-entrance to the Coppertop Church helps identify the building as a voting site. Tuesday was the primary voting day for Minnesota.Â I wore my “I voted” sticker that day.
Duluth has an extremely high rate of voter turn-out. From Wikipedia: Minnesota has consistently high voter turnout; in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, 78.2% of eligible Minnesotans voted â€“ the highest percentage of any U.S. state â€“ versus the national average of 61.7%.
I know Duluth might have the highest of the state, but I’m not finding the research to support that claim right now.
To see photos of the people on this day visit: Minnesota primary
Today was the second day of the Glensheen Art & Craft Fair. I sold a photo of a ship in the March waters of Lake Superior.
Today I had lots of fun. I took 5 photos over to the Glensheen Art and Craft Festival, I saw some cool stuff, met a friend for coffee and a saw a little doggie riding in a cloth sack on the back of a motorcycle driver who I could not tell whether male of female. BUT!!! the battery on my camera was dead.
Bluesfest was in town too, but we didn’t make it down to Bayfront. 🙁
I will have a few of my photographs framed to sell with my fellow Create Artists at the Glensheen Art Fair this weekend.
From Festing.com: Nestled between a great lake and a majestic mansion, a better location would be hard to find. The region’s finest artists participate in the show named a best bet by the Duluth News Tribune and attended by thousands every year. Price: Free
Check out the CREATE booth featuring 11 area artists. We are across from the huge vegetable garden. The show is free and you can wander the manicured grounds, shop, enjoy the lake, shop and fill your eyes with beautiful art and shop.
The Festival is free. You are encouraged to take the free shuttle bus from UMD’s Maroon Lot B. (Tours will be offered all day forÂ regular prices.) Tell your friends! Enjoy the show!
Tonight my husband and I went to an event and then I drove him back to work. I noticed how beautiful the sun was and parked the car to get a better look at the sailboats. Looks like a lot of other people wanted to park a while and enjoy the view too. Every Wednesday night the Duluth Yacht Club races their sailboats. I’m assuming these people are tourists, but I don’t know that for sure. My husband and I like to play tourists, so these people could be Duluthians, either way they know a good view when these see it.
Community gardens abound in Duluth, but I think this one which Park Point residents share is truly a “community” garden, whereas most sites are several individual gardens at a community site. This year is the year of the beet, which grows well in Duluth. Learn more at Duluth Community Garden. Learn more about growing beets and recipes for beets here: Year of the Beet.
This sculpture is named “Cooperation, Safety, Honor” and was created by Tom Christiansen. Christiansen has a shop in Lutsen, which is northeast of Duluth along the shore.Â Read his blog here: http://tomchristiansen.blogspot.com/ The new public safety building is on Arlington Road near the Chris Jensen Center. The police move from downtown to out here a few months ago. The sheriff’s office and the 911 call center is here too.
Kids had fun today at the bouncy houses at Memorial Park in Spirit Valley as a part of Spirit Valley Days
