Rebel Ink

This little strip of stores is what St. Paul is all about. Locally owned specialty stores with great neighborhood folks running them. While I'm a big fan of Lula, a funky retro clothing store, I am particularly partial to Rebel Ink & Rebel Ink Baby! Specialty T-shirts with saucy sayings and unique designs! They make custom T's too.

I LOVE this sign! Who advertises color TV anymore? This is such a no tell motel and I wonder what goes on there sometimes.

Como Park Conservatory

A friend of mine was just talking about this place yesterday. I know I've posted a picture of it before, but here is a different view. Enjoy.

Dinner at Pazzaluna

Halibut, oh so yummy! And a delightful coffee afterwards.

I apologize to my viewers as I've been forgetful with my camera and need to spend some serious time taking new shots for you all to see. Thanks for the patience.

It's been so cold & damp, I thought this might warm us all up a bit!

Golden Treasures

Behold! My favorite jewelry store responsible for many of the shiney baubles lovingly bestowed upon me by my husband! (Thanks, babe!) Enjoy personalized service with superior quality? Enjoy locally owned businesses who understand about fantastic customer service? Then Golden Treasures is for you. Located on Grand Avenue, I highly recommend them!

Apartment building on Grand Avenue. I just liked the way the three buildings were lined up.

An Evening in St. Paul

One of my all-time favorite things to do in St. Paul is have dinner with friends. While St. Paul boasts many fine eateries, it's the people that live here who keep this spot firmly planted in my heart.

Fall in Como Park Continues

It's so easy to take gorgeous pictures when nature is providing such amazing subjects.

The Boat House

I'm not sure the correct terminology for this. Is it the boat house? The skiff house? The crew house? Whatever it is, it was built in the 20's and is still in use. Observe.

Port of St. Paul

Who knew that St. Paul had a port? Not me! Barges stop in the downtown area all the time but I rarely see pleasure craft docked there. Perhaps it's because there isn't really an area that caters to watercraft. I mean there is one gas station and one restaurant over by Harriet Island, but nothing else for public boats. Still, it's fun to cruise downtown and look at all the buildings. Especially when you have a day as nice as this.
