The Lakes

Later on Saturday morning, we met up with Kirstin and a friend of hers from work at Lake Harriet in Minneapolis. Bryan, Koo and her friend were there to run around the three lakes (Harriet, Calhoun and Lake of the Isles) - a total of 9.5 miles. All three of them are training to run in the Twin Cities Marathon in October.

The kids and I opted for a shorter jaunt around just Lake Harriet. The lakes are very close together and are surrounded by beautiful old homes and parks. All of the lakes allow only canoes and sailboats and have lots of small beaches and great places to fish. We have come to concerts at the Lake Harriet band shell and taken visitors to the Rose Gardens and Bird Sanctuary adjacent to Lake Harriet.

It was a gorgeous day and we agreed to meet back at the band shell.
