I met a friend at the airport tonight. This is his first time in the Midwest other than for flying through the Chicago airport. We drove along Mississippi River Blvd and stopped at the overlook for the Ford Dam and Lock 1 on the Mississippi River. We are having a drought in this part of Minnesota. For the first time ever no water is flowing over the Ford Dam.
Then we drove along Summit Avenue, one of the most beautiful streets in any city. We went to Salut Restaurant for dinner and had nice conversation. We will start out being tourists again tomorrow at 10:30. He's living for a couple of days on Pacific time zone.
