Loring Park (Minneapolis, MN)

Over the past few years, I have noticed Sacramento real estate slowing down quite a bit throughout July. Sales don't really start to move much until we get closer to Labor Day, although sellers and buyers still conduct business, just not as much. Which means that it is a good time of year to plan a few vacation trips, even though it means I am still taking my work with me. I don't ever let go of that.I realize people do take vacations by leaving work behind, but that's just not me. I don't mind the multi-tasking that is required; it keeps me feeling fulfilled and my clients assuredly content.

Loring Greenway is an urban walkway that connects Nicollet Mall with Loring Park, the city park that gives its name to the Minneapolis neighborhood ranked 2nd most livable by Twin Cities METRO magazine. If you aren't familiar with it you might not even realize it's there... but this urban walkway gets heavy use by thousands of people every day. One entrance is across the street from the Berger dandelion fountain on the western edge of Loring Park. It meanders past condos, townhouses and apartments as it makes it way through gardens, fountains, and a playground on its way to Nicollet Mall... across the street from Westminster Presbyterian Church where a Paul Granlund sculpture bursts forth. Designed by noted landscape architect M. Paul Friedberg, it is very fitting that Peavey Plaza, whi...

My favorite summertime restaurant is Joe's Garage Restaurant & Bar in Minneapolis, MN     I love, love, love Joe's and here is why:   1) It's hip, it's eclectic, it's fun.   2) They have the best burgers in the world.     3) They have the BEST mash potatoes that are a meal in and of themselves....REALLY!   4) They have the best roof top patio with views of The Basilica Cathedral and the Minneapolis skyline.       Now more about the potatoes. You can build your own Mash Potatoes and here is my favorite: Two Scoops of Mash Potatoes with Red Thai Sauce and Broccoli. It just doesn't get any better. The spiciness of the Thai sauce, the crunchiness of the perfectly done broccoli, the yummy potatoes...need I say more. I know I should branch out more but here is what my husband and I do almost ...

Two weeks ago I visited Loring Park in Minneapolis to take some photos for one of my listings that is two blocks away. It was a great afternoon, and I got some wonderful shots.  I didn't arrive until 2 pm, so I had to work around the sun. An easy way to do this, I have found, is to take photos from under trees, so that the sun is blocked out by the leaves and branches. Your own natural camera hood if you like. Each of these photos was taken under a tree...the second photo I let the tree branches become a natural border, which frames Saint Mark's in the background.
