I took this photo from Harriet Island in St. Paul. I like how the colorful apartments bring a bit of life to this otherwise gray scene.
We recently went to the St. Paul Irish Fair again (my last post on it is here: St. Paul Irish Fair) and I took a bunch of pictures. We were there fairly early so it wasn’t too crowded yet, but we did get to see some bagpipes players and some great views of St. Paul again.
The fair is held on Harriet Island, (not actually an island, but it does border the Mississippi River) with a dock that has great views of the St. Paul Skyline. I ended up taking several pictures from there.
I like the pictures from here that show the city in the background, its a great feature of this location. Oh, and the park has some massive trees around, some of the biggest I have seen in the state, although my picture last year showed the size a bit better.
This is the Covington Inn, a tugboat turned bed and breakfast which sits moored to a dock in St. Paul. This looks like it would have been a really cool place to stay at, but the For Sale signs indicate that it is no longer. Here is an article about the Covington Inn, explaining that it has gone on sale. I am not sure if they are still operating until it is sold or not. Hopefully it will be bought by someone and continue to provide this relaxing getaway right in the city.
