"Ah, The Lake!"
I was raised around Lake Minnetonka and loved the area. Many years later, I continue to love the mystique and beauty of the acres and acres of bays that make it the Lake that it is. (I always wondered about the Upper Arm being BELOW the LOWER arm!)
Lake Minnetonka was once given the motto - "Where the Rich are very rich, indeed!" But that's another story...
keeps these pictures from revealing the warmth that the Lake normally enjoys in late July! It was FREEZING! But I still grinned constantly while traveling on the Trolley Boat from Excelsior to Wayzata. The volunteer pilots even let me take a turn at steering! They recognized my childlike glee at being back on the water.
