Beach blanket bonanza at Woodbury's Carver Lake Beach
For most Minnesotans, last week's high temperatures - which saw triple digits - were a cause for frustration and an excuse to stay inside air conditioned areas.
For others it was the perfect beach weather.
Hordes of people descended on Carver Lake Beach last week to cool off in the lake and have some fun in the sun.
Beachgoers enjoyed everything from swimming, volleyball, sand castles and generally just lounging on the beach.
