Sometimes a trip out of Saint Paul is good for the soul and last Saturday was just the day for that. Sunny, cool and breezy; a perfect day to break out the Cyber-1957 Buick Roadmaster Convertible and take it for a cruise.
A cruise in more fun with friends, so Daisy & I stopped by Joe’s Café and Coffee (Pretty Good Food and Great Coffee) to grab Carl.
Soon we were on our way. Heading east out of Saint Paul through Woodbury on Interstate 94, we were greeted by the sun.
We turned north on Washington County Road 15/Manning Trail and continued north through Stillwater (there is a slight detour along Minnesota Hwy 5) until just past the intersection of County 15 & County 4.
It is there that we came to one of my favorite barns…have I mentioned I really like old barns? I came to like old barns when I was child and spent part of each summer on my aunt’s farm up in Pine County. I noticed this one some years ago while making deliveries in Forest Lake.
We lingered for a while there before returning to Saint Paul…the position of the sun made windshield photography out of the question until we turned on to Market Street in Downtown Saint Paul and passed by the historic Landmark Center (on our left), the Gothic former Federal Courthouse and the beautiful Hamm Building directly ahead to the right.
A refreshing little excursion to be sure! Who knows where we’ll go next, the only sure thing is that we will spend more time on the road to try and capture some of what makes this a great place to live and work!
