Visiting Lake Harriet has been on my to do list for a long time. I have been to Lake Calhoun and it is super nice. Going to the lakes on a weekend can be crazy with tons of people and dogs out running, biking, and walking, but we went anyway. It is about a three mile walk all around the lake and we started close to the band shell. Emma had come to Lake Harriet for walks many times according to Mom.
Trying to take photos is a challenge at first since we haven’t been to this lake before and is it so busy. We started doing a few close up photos because Mom wasn’t ready to drop our leashes right away. Can you see how proud Olivia is to be out for a walk? Such a silly girl she is!
In the summer, they rent out canoes and kayaks. Right now they are stacked up waiting for warmer weather and water. We love all the pretty colors they have.
From the south side of the lake, you can see the Lake Harriet Band Shell and the Minneapolis skyline. I know, we are much more interesting, but go ahead and find those items behind us. Our tongues are out because it was seventy degrees which is really warm for us this time of the year. Our bodies need to adjust to warmer weather again.
It appears we may have eaten too much breakfast because this floating dock is definitely slanting into the water! Yikes, I’m super happy we didn’t all fall into the lake because it would make Mom crabby, and the water is still real cold.
Remember my Baywatch post on Monday? Well, besides watching over the lake, a life guard may need a boat to rescue someone in trouble. Olivia and I are ready to head out onto the open water the moment we see someone who needs us.
Visiting Lake Harriet is a lot of fun. Now I need to visit Lake of the Isles as I haven’t been there yet. Hope you enjoyed our little tour. As my tongue is saying, “Time to go, it is way too warm out here!” Back to the car we go for a nice ride home, followed by some treats and a good nap! Adventures are always fun, but tiring.
