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.

 

Yellow Roadster for Skyline Parkway

731 yellow car and terry - 1 adj

Today a The Skyline Parkway Planning and Preservation Alliance held big party in Chester Bowl to celebrate 125 years. Everyone was encouraged to BYOP — bring your own picnic items. And Alliance provided the cake and ice-cream as well as games and a Dixieland band.  My mother really likes the color yellow, so as I scanned the area I just had to snap this photo her to enjoy. The added bonus is that it’s my husband in a yellow shirt holding our picnic cooler and blanket as he scans the area for a place for us enjoy our lunch.

This 1930 Chevy Roadster has a 50 horsepower engine and steel over wood framing with a rumble seat and wire wheels. It originally sold for $515 and 27, 651 were produced. Duluthians Sue and Dean Beeman own the car.

The card looks very similar to the one in this vintage postcard of Skyline Parkway

Construction cones

I like the  way these yellow leaves frame the traditional orange color of October on these cones in this truck with a green cab. Makes me wonder when construction workers will pick up all the cones that dot every other road and sidewalk in Duluth. I hate to say it but winter is around the corner. Seems like everyday I see a new patch of construction.

I saw leaves and this yield sign and I just had to take the photo for my mom who loves the color yellow. This was taken at West First Street and Sixth Avenue West. The Incline Station bowling alley is 1/2  below this. The building in the background is Lennox Place.
