Justin and I spent lots of time in the car today, but as it took us over to Hudson, WI/Minneapolis, MN, it was time well spent. We got to Hudson right about noon, stopped for a quick bite to eat, and then I dropped Justin off at Troy Burn Golf Club. His dad had to work in the area in the morning, so they decided to meet up there for their afternoon round. They both agree that it is a very nice, but very challenging course.
Then I drove into downtown Minneapolis to Nicollet Mall for the Farmer’s Market
. The weather was gorgeous, I got a primo parking spot and came away with plenty of goodies – bread, carrots, sweet corn and green beans. I was very tempted by all the beautiful flowers, but I figured they would wilt by the time I got them home into water anyway. A picture lasts much longer, even if it doesn’t smell as nice!
I also just enjoyed walked and driving around the downtown area, with the skyways and sunshine!
After a quick trip to IKEA
, I drove back into Hudson and walked around their downtown area and then along the waterfront. I had brought a blanket and a book along in case I had extra time, and it was very nice to relax a bit before I returned to the golf course to pick up Justin.
