My hubby and I decided we needed to get out of the house, even though it was dreary outside. We took a drive to St. Paul and travelled the river road. The houses are amazing along the river and they have the best views. St. Paul is our capital city and super charming, but we don’t spend much time there (we’re more team Minneapolis), so it was really nice to drive around. We stopped along the river and had a great view of the cool dog park on the other side. Even with these cold temps, the dogs could not resist the water!
We then stopped at Harriet Island and looked at the paddle boats. We saw a gaggle of geese flying south and had to dodge their droppings!
We even made a stop along Grand Avenue. Very busy-lots of shoppers! I had to pick something up for a friend at Bibelot and we could hardly get in the door. There’s something about shopping street side-it makes it feel much more “holiday-ish” than being in a mall.
