A Walk in the Park

Marking an Engagement.

I took a short walk along the west shore of Lake Harriet and then back through the Roberts Bird Sanctuary, a little wooded marshland between the lake’s north shore and Lakewood Cemetery.  Generally this is a peaceful little walk, but today people out for Easter walks crowded the path a little.

So I went off the beaten path a little and found this plaque hanging on a rather unimpressive tree.  The plaque marks an engagement.  It is dated 8/24/05 and reads “Here with this tree as witness we were engaged.”

The plaque doesn’t face any active paths and I’m sure few people have seen it.  Does anyone know the story?  Nice plaque.  I enjoy finding little surprises like that.  It adds something nice to the city.
