Capers on Water

We went to Capers on Water street to buy Halloween accouterments.  They have plenty, and Se threw togther elements for a costume for an upcoming party. The Capers’ cashier  handled the operation manually using breakaway duplicate forms and a calculator. Still efficient.

I find the level of activity in Excelsior to be uplifting. There is a sense of anticipation of the upcoming Holidays beginning with the faux holiday - Halloween., which falls on a Saturday this year.

Excelsior Bay, September 24

I jumped from my car and rushed over to catch this shot of the bay. In the diminishing evening light stood a woman trying to do the same. She was having a bit of trouble with her camera/phone. We both "Oohed and Aahhad" at the colors of the sunset, and then we were off.

Finishing Runners_ Apple Days 5K

The weather was perfect for a race. No wind, sunny and 60 degrees. The intensity of the light challenged my camera , and person skills.  The runners flew by.  The course was flat. It was perfect.  I think the winning time was about 15 minutes flat.
I stood near the soggy finish line, next to a woman who was taking photos for the Excelsior Chamber of Commerce. Her photos were spectacular.... I grumbled to myself.

Apple Day Run Excesior this Saturday Morning

I am opting out this time. I can live with the guilt, and there will be guilt.

I plan on one more race this year and this is not going to be the one... But I will take my usual action photos. I should be able to post very quickly with my new internet connection. I had been off line for months.
Let us take a look at the running shoes today's Minnetonka crowd are running in. Which brands will abound around town?

My Green Heron

I sat patiently and took photos of a battle in the pond. This guy ( I assume this Heron is a male) took over command of the coveted branch. Three  Wood Ducks usually sit atop this branch, soon to leave for other lands.

The little rascal took off quickly, but I got off an  action photo. His transformation is surprising.
