See? I am sure it has something to do with the fact that it is along one of his oft-travelled bike routes. In any case, as I was driving to the gym in Highland Park today, my route took me across the Ford Pkwy bridge as it always does. From the bridge, I could clearly see the Ford Plant site... I may have quietly cursed to myself when I realized what I was looking at. Once I was safely over the bridge into St. Paul, I pulled over to take advantage of the photo (and blogging) opportunity:
My first shot, over the black fence meant to discourage onlookers, I'm sure.
My second shot, from a bit further down Ford Parkway through a small gap in the black fence.
Demolition clearly continues apace. It's like some sort of post-apocalyptic disaster zone. Plus a bulldozer.
This is the view from the top of the parking ramp at the gym. Holy cow.
I am excited to see what eventually goes in that space - maybe it'll be some sort of apartment building with an automotive decorating theme. But it is also a bit sad to see the destruction of a neighborhood icon. I mean - it's FORD Parkway that I was driving on.
And now, a photo of Calvin playing with/growling at two toys at once. That blue one in his mouth is his favorite. We have to keep buying the two packs because he destroys them so quickly:
If anyone is looking for a Christmas present for Calvin, a stockpile of those mice toys would be the greatest gift EVER. These ones might also be nice. :-)
