Concert and stroll around Lake Harriet

The Willie August Project
Last evening we took in a concert by a jazz trio, The Willie August Project, at the Lake Harriet Bandshell.  This smooth contemporary jazz group was named after one of the musicians grandfathers.  How cool is that?

Following the concert we enjoyed a summer's stroll around the lake.  It was great to see so many walkers, bikers, sailers, swimmers and even a few folks fishing.  We stopped to chat with some of the people fishing off of a dock. I learned that Lake Harriet is one of the most under fished waters in the state, given its great wealth of pan fish, walleye, muskie and bass.  Don't tell anyone!

Following is a link to concerts throughout the summer at the Lake Harriet Bandshell.
