As I was Downtown Minneapolis I took many shots of the Mississippi River from different parks walkways etc. This is one of the best shots I got. The bridge is the 3rd Avenue bridge. This is the mani street used now since the bridge collapse of the 35W highway bridge. The new bridge being built is just about a half mile from this bridge. I love the lights reflection on the rivers water at night time. I just wanted to share this was all. Do you have a major river that you walk along for relaxation etc? HAPPY POSTINGS FROM GRANDPA BOB !!~

Beautiful picture and thank you so much for sharing with us all. I used to love to walk along the river Thames when I lived in Surrey and it also has many bridges with great architecture to admire as well as being relaxing to be near, now where I live I stroll along the sea and have the most wonderful views over the estuary too. Ellie :D

this is the river overlooking outside my window - this is the small river outside my window. i love to to see this river very much.
Hello dear Grandpa Bob. Like you, I also love to walk on the bank of the river and take photos of rivers. Here I have uploaded one of the river photos that I took a couple of days ago to share with you. This is a small river that I can look at from my window facing the west. It is a small river. These days it has been raining and the river water is getting full making the river more beautiful. You can see the mountains where the rain is also on the way to the ground and some drops of white dots showing the rain. Both sides of the river are the reeds and some bamboos, most of which are reeds. I hope that you enjoy this photo I took. Right now when I am responding to your discussion, I cannot see the photo, but I will be able to see yours after this response of is posted. I will take the chance to see yours as well. Thanks a lot for sharing, my dear Grandpa Bob.

Hello again, dear Grandpa Bob. I have seen it now. It is the Mississippi River, the longest river in your country. It is a nice picture of the river and the bridge. I like it and thank you very much for sharing it with us. Have a good evening, Grandpa Bob.

That is a great view. So pretty. I live near Niagara Falls so we have the Falls, the Niagara River and Lake Ontario very close. The upper river is full full of eddies created by the Falls, but the lower river is like glass a lot of the times. We waterski on it because of this fact. I love being on the water or even near it. As a kid I spent my summers on the shores of the lake. As an adult I am still drawn to the water.

Wow that's a great shot! I live closer to the Tennessee River even though I live in Mississippi. I have sometimes gone to a dam near here and walked with my husband though its been a few years. I actually like getting out at night better than the day, esp in the summer. Its not as hot and its just more peaceful and relaxing.

Well, mmm, I don't want to sound so negative on my home town, but the only river here is full of waste and smell like gutter. I would not be a great place to have relaxation. I so want to have a holiday out of town or out of the country. I envy you That river and the bridge is beautiful!

That's a beautiful picture! So you guys didn't get the flooding? I'm glad. The Mississippi has been causing havoc lately, I'm very sad for those people.

We don't have rivers like that in Trinidad, no. We do have a huge ( for an island like Trinidad ) park in the city called " the Savannah. ) I do go for walks there and it is great at night except the crowds and vendors have dwindled because of all the crime. What I personally have is a porch, as I live on the top floor of my building, that has a view of the entire valley in which my neighbourhood is situated. Its lovely at night with all the lights and the traffic in the road below plus there are tall trees along the valley with birds that sing all the time. You're right ! Nature and good views are it ! Glad to know you love yours !

I used to love walking but can no longer do it for long periods. Instead, I find comfort in reading now and sometimes just relaxing with the television and a good movie!

I wish we did but we don't. There is a lot of hustle and bustle down the Chicago River as it runs right through downtown. Other than that I have no idea where any other rivers are around here. Aaaah, city living, LOL!

I don't have a river that I walk along but I do have this really beautiful lake where I go to relax when I've had a tough day or am stressed out. Sometimes I just go there to walk my dog.
