One of my favorite summertime destinations is the Ox Cart Arcade and Rooftop. The arcade is below at street level with another restaurant, but their rooftop setup is amazing! Their website needs some major help, so don't let that stop you from coming here. The view is outstanding and it overlooks CHS field, home of the Saint Paul Saints.

I thought I was taking a photo of the Valspar Building. As I'm typing, I realized they refreshed the paint job on the building. I had captured the same building back in 2006, which you can see here with the original paint. Today, it is now the Sherwin Williams Building. It makes sense they refreshed the paint job, and I wouldn't have looked closer if they hadn't. Nice to see they kept the familiar feel to the building as well.

It was a great show at US Bank Stadium a couple weekends ago at the Kenny Chesney concert at US Bank Stadium. We purchased tickets back in March or April to the Sandbar section, which were general admission section, and right next to the stage. The show was supposed to take place in 2020, but was postponed, like many shows until 2022. I'm just glad we didn't have to wait three years to see him perform.

Last year in 2021, the song 'I Was On A Boat That Day' by Old Dominion was me and my wife's theme song for the summer. To see them sing it live was quite a treat. We certainly would see them again if they return as the headliner. They opened for Kenny Chesney with a couple other bands.

It's an odd duck of a stadium, artistically pleasing, and yet really difficult to photograph. I've only captured a couple of photos of the new US Bank Stadium, and haven't felt I captured it well. Maybe it's the size of the structure, or I'm always on my way in to the stadium and don't take my time.

This is my second time photographing the round house in Hastings. The first time I posted a photo of this house, it was my fifth post ever on my photoblog. Way back on April 30, 2006. That really goes way back. The house looked a little plain back then, but maybe that was because it was a springtime photo.
Here is a link to my 5th Post: https://www.twincitiesdailyphoto.com/2006/04/round-house-in-hastings.html

The left path is for walking, the right path is for biking. I certainly prefer the divided grass path between the two versus a painted white line. During my walks where we share the path, I venture over the white line quite often and get reminded every time.
