There are several lakes of various sizes in the Twin Cities area. Lake Nokomis is a popular lake to walk, bike and run around. It is also a favorite for a couple of friends of ours.
So C, Baby Willow and I headed down to meet our friends at the casual restaurant/food stand by the “beach” on Lake Nokomis. We took a walk around the lake before eating. It was nice to catch up with them and hear about their big road trip.
Along the way we saw a family of Mallard ducks. There were also canoers, kyakers, and people sailing boats on the lake. Seeing as it was a beautiful day, many people were out walking their dogs on the walking path too.
Afterwards we stopped at the Sandcastle restaurant. It has nice food, but a limited menu. I chose not to take photos of the dishes as I simply was hungry and wanted to eat. The presentation was nice and the food tasted good. I would tell friends without food restrictions to have a bite. Some things are not cheap as a can of soda/pop/cola/coke is $2.25.
The five of us went for a bit of a walk going by the creek towards Cedar Avenue from the lake. There we saw more mallard ducks and ducklings. I have a soft spot for baby ducklings and goslings.
C and I parted ways with our friends and agreed that it was a nice afternoon outing with friends.
Bye for now.
