On a Blanket on the Island Reprise

On a blanket on the island, this time in the middle of the Mississippi River, we sat and ate our meat and cheese.  We munched on fresh rye bread, fell asleep under afternoon trees, and listened to the harmonica sound over rushing seas.  We walked on small cobbled streets, explored the shops of St. Anthony Main - ly to see the amber and eggs of the Baltic gift shop and taste the treats of Kramarczuk's Deli. We had a picnic - black cherry soda, root beer, meat and cheese.
