Lake of the Isles homes

Went on a walk yesterday around Minneapolis' Lake of the Isles.  The many large, diverse and beautiful homes and gardens provided great viewing.  At times it was hard to decide whether to took lake side or residential side.

When viewing these homes I wondered about a few things...
  • What do these people do for a living that they can afford such homes?  Perhaps they inherited them?
  • How can they afford the taxes and maintenance required of such large personal residents?
  • Don't they get lonely in such large homes with very few residents?  Wonder if they would like a house guest or three?
  • What must their heating/cooling bills look like?
I marveled at the beautiful gardens and interesting architecture.  One of the homes was having an estate sale.  They had items for purchase in the garage, by the sculpture gardens and in the music room.  We purchased some CDs and a kite.  Now I'm prepared for the next time someone tells me to "go fly a kite."
