So I will admit that I goofed on my times and thought that the day we visited was an open house. It was not. So instead of touring the home, we took a meander around the park and the grounds. Due to the chill, we did not stick around too long.
It was cool to see the river floor plain and being so high up we could see for a long distance. We have had an unusually dry November and the ground was dry which made our time easier.
I would like to give this place another shot in late spring or summer. I think the place will feel more welcoming.

It was one of those days when we wanted to get out of town, but not go too far. Excelsior is a small town off of Lake Minnetonka. It has a decent park along side the mostly privately owned … Continue reading →
Another trip we took was to Interstate State Park. We were told to go see the massive glacial potholes made thousands of years ago. They were large and I would not want to fall in one, but C and I … Continue reading →
After a hectic morning we decided to take it easy and visit Theodore Worth Park and have a picnic. Baby Willow seems to enjoy having a meal outside as long as the biting bugs are at bay. This is a … Continue reading →
