Walking the Riverwalk with Family

Phillip and the kids joined me for a short stint of walking the Riverwalk at the Pearl Brewery on this Memorial Day weekend. It wasn't overly busy. There were a lot of senior/prom/quinceaƱera pictures going on. It's a very pretty place.

 The map we're using. 
We walked from the place marked Pearl down to Jones Ave Bridge. 
There was free parking last week at the Witte Museum and free parking for the Pearl this week. Downtown parking can get expensive, so I'm pleased to find parking areas that don't cost anything.

Taking pictures of ducks and turtles. 

Twenty-five long-eared sunfish (fiberglass) hang from I-35 overpass. They light up at night ~ that would be a pretty sight to see. 

It was pretty hot and sweaty even though we didn't walk very far and it was evening.  We stopped for ice cream before heading to the van. 

This ice cream place is called Lick Honest Ice Creams. It's delicious ice cream. Tastes homemade. I sampled their cilantro lime and LOVED it. We also tried coffee, strawberry and chocolate chip mint. Real ingredients (you could taste the herbiness in the cilantro and mint flavors). A bit pricey for ice cream ~ but it's probably the best ice cream I've ever had. Besides what my grandpa used to crank for us. You can't beat your grandpa's homemade ice cream.
