All Alone . . . in the Middle of 3 Million People

OK, so “On Fuchsia Pond” doesn’t have the same ring to it as “On Golden Pond,” the 1981 movie starring Henry Fonda and Katherine Hepburn.

And the body of water that’s pictured above and below left isn’t a pond — it’s Minneapolis’ Lake Calhoun (covering 400 acres — almost half the size of Central Park in Manhattan).

Finally, Lake Calhoun isn’t some remote, north woods idyll, but located smack dab the middle of the Twin Cities (2019 population: 3 million).

Details, Details

Of course, the sunset shot that would have really made my point — of Lake Calhoun with the Minneapolis skyline in the background — doesn’t exist, because downtown is northeast, not west, of the lake.
