This tree is frequently the first to turn

I’ve notice this tree near Portland Square on 12th Avenue East for many years because of its bright orange colors. A few years ago I interviewed some adults who were had a Portland Square Kids Reunion. They had many fun stories to tell about growing up in the area. BUT, they also told me that that tree ALWAYS was the first to turn orange in the fall.

Pumpkins in a box

I usually hate the “who knew?” questions in stories, but Who knew special cardboard boxes are made espcially for pumpkins.

These pumpkins sat in two huge cardboard boxes in a pick-up truck at the Miller Hill Mall. A nice display with hay bales and white, yellow and orange pumpkins are nicely displayed by the big sign in the parking lot by Miller Trunk Highway (U.S. Highway 53.)

One, two, three, how many do you see?

At first I heard some rustling, and I thought a person was standing outside the garage and I was a little afraid.
Then I saw one deer standing on the steps
Then two,
Then Three!

St. Louis River Alliance Vista Star Boat tour of the estuary

I was on the boat (on Tuesday, Sept. 11) with hundreds of people who seized the opportunity to get on the water and learn about St. Louis River Alliance and connect with the estuary.  They, (I want to say “we” but I was too busy taking posed smiling faces) enjoyed the view of the estuary from the water, learned about clean-up projects, successes and future vision of the estuary.

Look for photos of smiling faces, but not of the river, in the next The Woman Today magazine.

Minions in Lester Park

 

 

 

I dropped my little dog off at North Shore Veterinary Hospital, which is waaaay out east by Lester Park. I drove by this doorstep and kept on driving, but then I just had to turn around. We just saw Minions in “Despicable Me 3.” It was the last outdoor movie of the year in Leif Erikson Park .

Duluth is full of fun sights and community member working to make it a fun place to live.

Construction never ends

This photo was taken at the downtown public library at about 8 p.m. Notice it is already pitch dark. We took a class at the YMCA and by time we got out it was dark (about 7: 30) September is nice, but I’m not looking forward to the early darkness. Time to start up the Vitamin D supplements. I rode the bus home and there was another detour on 2nd Avenue West. And when I got off the bus my partner and I had to navigate construction barrels and cones.

Making hay while the sun shines.

By making hay while the sun shines, I mean driving your convertible with the top down while you still can. I saw this car with the owner while on my way to my writers’ group. I thought, “Naomi, just concentrate on your driving.” But I couldn’t stand it because classic car owners just love to talk about their cars. And the owner was standing right there.  So I turned my car around and drove over to the man’s driveway and asked him if I could take a photo of his car.I guessed that it was a 1966, but he said the rear looks like a 1966 but front looks like a 1962.

Taking a break

Life has become a little too busy. Duluth Daily Photo is on hiatus.

I hope to return in a couple weeks.
