Tour De Tonka a word of caution...

Plan your route(s) tomorrow around Lake Minnetonka carefully, there will be delays and detours because of the "Tour De Tonka".  There will be frustration.

Last year  as the "Tour" wore on into late morning, I drove down a local boulevard only to be stopped by an Officer who was directing traffic. I stopped. He was tired (this is my excuse for him) and after stopping me I waited. He then appeard to wave me on. Frankly, I do not know what his gesture meant but I began moving forward down the road. He began to yell at me, hitting, almost banging on my window. I rolled down the window and caught myself in an outburst, but I did say:  "I am just TRYING to do what you are telling me to do!"  Unsatisfied- he was still infuriated.
So I waited.... and he exasperatedly waved me on.

Enjoy. Ride and drive with care.

The Tour de Tonka is almost upon us. Check your travel routes.

I will be taking photos from a spectator's point of view this year. Stop into this site and take a look,  I will finally be able to post from home (after our grand move). This following shot was taken on the fly - in other words I was on my bicycle while I took it. Not a recommended procedure.

The year was 2007.

Cognitively Challenged Days in Excelsior

When I stopped by on Saturday, Water Street was a bit empty, but it was early. I strolled along, and passed a lot jeans with beaded pocket on street racks. Not quite me. I took a few photos as I rummaged through the sale racks trying to find that perfect T-shirt that said "I have an attitude" - for under $10 dollars.

The Old Log Theater & the Minnetonka "Green Bayou"

This is not the main building. But outdoor seating should feature some Cajun cousine
