Columbus Ride

Three day weekends are golden. Unfortunately for those who were in the tri-state area over Columbus day weekend, the weather was all over the place. Saturday (the only day of the three that did not have rain), I got on the bike and headed out of the city while the sun was still rising. My friend and I rode up through Rockland County to Harriman State Park, where the leaves are kind of changing, but not really. I’m guessing because it still hasn’t really gotten cold. It felt more like August than October the entire weekend. Anyway, riding through the woods, it was all foggy and seemed kind of twilight zoney. We stopped on Seven Lakes Drive to take these snaps. The last one was a timer shot from the bushes across the road. The bushes framed it nicely, IMO.

October 2017 Playlist

IDK about you guys, but I really wasn’t impressed with a lot of the new music that was released over the last summer. There was some okay stuff. But for the most part, kinda blah. When good music did come out, it was a single, not a whole album of goodness. Getting to the point, I was relatively pleased with Odesza’s new album that dropped in recent weeks. Consistent with their signature sound, etc. I feel like it may bring chill wave back into the limelight a bit. What better time than fall? That question was, of course, rhetorical. Now we just need Washed Out to make some new material. Haha. Anyway, here is ze Oct playlist-

Indian Summer

It is the last week of September, but you wouldn’t know it based on the temperature in NYC. We took advantage of the uncharacteristically warm weather and did some casual cycling through some parts of Brooklyn that were previously lesser known to us. Made it back to G-point in time for golden hour and a fantastic sunset.

Denmark

I recently made it to Denmark for the first time. B subscribes to some sort of airfare deal notification email list and bought the tickets for us over the summer. We did a lot of the typical touristy stuff while we were there, and loved it. Instead of writing a full play by play download, here are a couple of highlights that we enjoyed and would recommend checking out:

Here are some photos from the trip:

Iceland

B and I recently had a 6 hour layover in Iceland, and decided to try to make the most of it. We checked out the Blue Lagoon, which was a short cab ride from the airport. It was definitely worth the energy that we put into it. I would recommend it. After that small taste of Iceland, I am now itching to get back there when I can actually spend some time exploring.

Wrapping up Summer

We ventured down to the Jersey shore over the weekend. The weather was insanely good. We caught up with family, caught up with friends, caught up with Lola, got some sun, went sailing and, relaxed.

De la Weekend – Bear Mtn. Ride

Saturday morning was one of those rides where I wish I would have had my real camera with me. I saw so much good stuff. It was a little hotter than ideal, but the visibility was really good and the sky was loaded up with cartoon looking clouds. Anyway, here are a couple of images that I managed to snap with my celly.
