This Memorial Day we had a range of weather, a hard rain, with storms to the west, muggy, then hot and muggy with a bright sun. Then hot, and in the evening back down to the 50s. It was a beautiful day.
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
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.
