This past Saturday's weather was quite the opposite of the previous one. The sun was shining; the temperatures were warmer. Too bad it couldn't have been like this for the SMAHC boat cruise, but I wasn't complaining. A few of us were heading east toward Shakopee for the Minnesota Renaissance Festival. We did take a little detour to look at the Beaver Falls county park that Ross had come across earlier this summer. We even saw a couple of whitetails as we drove down the windy road.
