Shaping our Community - a book of stories

Inspired by Debra Hart and Jim Olds, this book is a collection of memories of the people who lived the South Lake Minnetonka area. "Written" or collected  by Alan Tollefson.
I met him as he greeted the crowd at Kristkindlesmark.


Al. I do not know Al, but he was gregarious and sold me on the book!

A Sunday trip to distant Wayzata

We finally made the trip on newly... well relatively newly, re opened 101. The Grays Bay bridge with gently curves and stonework are lovely. The bridge over the railway is finished and opened. And the town of Wayzata is still under fast expansion.. almost intimidating. We ate lunch at the brightly blue and white appointed Cove. Very marinesque ( that ismy word).

Minnetonka Community Center for the Arts




I finished my evening life draw class on Tuesday.  It was an effort to bush up on my basic drawing skills....
This photo is the Center at dusk as I pulled up, perhaps not the most dramatic, but a welcome sign with the glowing lights.
The shows are always interesting, sometimes fascinating and definitely reassuring. Art is alive in the area. Now my drawing skills are a different story.


I have taken two session. There has been progress.
