Walking at Lake Como

And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street…

One of my favorite Dr Seuss books, so many possibilities of what you might see if you just look around you.  On Monday nite I had the second of a 2 part Nordic Walking Class at Como Lake in St Paul.  It’s a long way from home but it’s a delightful lake to walk around.  I plan to go back for a drink on the deck of the restaurant next summer.

Monday was warm and wonderful so the trail was full of walkers and runners.  Many had dogs on leashes and there is one cat walker that we saw again that night.  But imagine my surprise when I saw a man walking toward me with a monkey on his shoulder.  I’m sorry to say I don’t know what kind of monkey it was but it was beautiful and very content with his high perch and great view of all that was happening around him.

I’m already missing the blue herons and egrets of summer but obviously I need to keep my eyes open for surprises on the trails!
