Redwing MN is a small river town of about 16,000, it's about 1 hour straight north of Rochester,
nestled in the banks of the Mississippi River
Rick and I headed to Redwing on Saturday morning to view the eagles at Colville Park.
These beautiful birds are wintering here and it's quite a site to behold.....
I was giddy with excitement as we approached the park and began seeing Eagles everywhere.
This photo was across the marina on the other side of the channel.
Those little black specs are bald eagles
Many of the eagles were close enough to zoom in on,
and they don't seem to mind posing for a picture.
This Golden eagle was a beauty!
Mr. Bald Eagle, up in the tree above me
A bit out of focus, but I caught this golden as he swooped in and caught his lunch!
They were soaring all around us, I thought I was give myself a whiplash!
and then there were the ducks :)
When ever we go out and about we try to find a small diner to try for lunch
We found "Bevs" (center green awning) it was a cute little place with lots of character,
the food was good, we both had a burger & fries
Walgreens "corner drug"
It was quite chilly, but we walked down one of
the historic streets to a near by bakery
Yum, these little towns always have the best bakery's
The train station
As we drove around the downtown area we saw a slew of old beautiful church buildings in about a 3 block radius. I decided to save that photoshoot for a warmer day :)
