Sailing and swimming through Leopolds in Excelsior

Leopolds in Excelsior is Gift shop/Bookstore and museum of Excelsior memories. I squeeze myself through the aisles. I page through vintage volumes on Lake Minnetonka, Farming, sailing, defunct railroads and how to train a unicorn. Dog books, 1940s Better Crocker Cook books. I take pictures, much to the consternation of the resident cat, who wanders through the shop and inspects each visitor.
