Today is one of the days when the garage gets cleaned in the building in which I live. We must have our cars out of the garage between 8:30 AM - 6:30 PM for this. I decided this was a perfect day to take myself out for breakfast. I went to Panera and cashed in one of the "surprises" on MyPanera account. It was great fun to sit there, drinking coffee and reading.
Took myself home and packed a bag. Carried it all to where I had parked my car on the street. Up the hill I went to a parking ramp. Then I walked to the Traveler's Insurance building to attend a scholarship luncheon for my university. Traveler's is a great partner for our university.
This was my first time on the plaza outside the building.
There is a lovely monument on the plaza, but I don't know why it is a Braille Monument. There is no sign on the plaza that tells one about the monument, nor the does an Internet search reveal anything about the monument.
Staying right along the Mississippi River.
Walked down to the start point to pick up the maps of the routes so I can decide about whether to do a 5 K or 11K walk.
Found two very interesting buildings on my way.
The first is the Mons Anderson House.
Then I found this building.
And look at this great mail box.
