A Day On Lake Minnetonka

We went on my sister and brother-in-law's boat out on Lake Minnetonka. Lake Mtka is probably one the nicest lakes in the "Twin Cities" area and close to the metro so it's a highly desireable lake to "try" to live on. Most tear-down homes start at $800,000 which are consumed up fast only to be replaced with the new 2.5 million+ dollar home. It's fun to go out there and people watch.

This is Jimmy Jam's house. He's a Minnesota native and a famous Grammy winning record producer. His most famous client is Janet Jackson, yada, yada, yada!

If this real estate bubble really does burst, maybe we can all pitch in and buy Jimmy Jam's Lakefront house which is up for a cool $11 million. The 24,000 square foot residence on Lake Minnetonka has five bedrooms, nine bathrooms, an exercise room, 12 heated garage spaces, and 3.5 acres of land. Oh, who are we kidding -- we can't pay last year's property tax on this pad ($76,780).

And finally, this is where shit went bad for Minnesota Vikings Quarterback Daunte Culpepper. Not that is wasn't bad prior to this but.....

The Hennepin County Sheriff's office is investigating reports that a party on a pair of cruise boats- Al and Alma's Boat Charter , arranged by a Minnesota Vikings prominent player, included nudity, lewd behavior and sex acts.

Quarterback Daunte Culpepper and three other Minnesota Vikings were charged with three misdemeanors each for taking part in a bawdy boat party earlier this season on Lake Minnetonka. Culpepper, Bryant McKinnie, Fred Smoot and Mow Williams were charged with indecent conduct, disorderly conduct and lewd or lascivious conduct, according to court papers.

We were going to eat dinner at Al & Alma's but they weren't open yet. So we headed over to Lord Fletchers.

Lord Fletchers. A fun place to eat, people watch and look at all the "new money"kids on their yachts! Was a fabulous day!
Happy Tuesday!

Oh... how I miss that Lake!! I used to drive it's shores on my way home from college... my personal favorites are the big OLD houses... gosh I would pay big money just to see inside some of them.

There is NOTHING better than a day spent on a lake in Minnesota... *sigh* glad you had fun!!

My boss is a HUGE Vikings fan and when that sex scandal came down he was devastated. I'll have to show him these pics.

We love lake Minnetonka living so close we try and drive around it at least once during the different seasons. Lord Fletchers is a great place too. One year the boys were in a hockey tournament and we were so busy so we ate our Thanksgiving dinner there. It was wonderful!
