A taste of Minneapolis

It was off to Minnneapolis late on Sunday 6th November. My expert local guide and friend introduced me to many of the charms of the city of Minneapolis over a three day visit. These photos are going into the memory bank.

A few of the hundreds of Canada geese grazing on a local park.

The house used in the iconic Mary Tyler Moore show. This was a consolation prize, as the statue erected in the city centre (of MTM tossing her hat in the air) is currently in storage while large construction work is taking place near its regular site.
