Though we’ve already penned our odes to fall and tights, and recapped our fun-filled summer, I left work this afternoon to find an overcast morning had brought forth one last glimpse of summer sun. So of course, Le Peug and I headed off to enjoy it. Our destination: Sevier Park, starting point for the LGRAB Garden Party Ride, home of Sunnyside Manor and less than a mile from my house.
I changed from work clothes into something more suitable for a last taste of summer.
A quick fashion digression: This year I’m challenging myself to wear scarves more often. My mother scores some gorgeous vintage ones at yard sales and passes them along to me, under the misguided notion that I know how to wear them without looking frumpy. It’s especially hard when the scarf is an old-fashioned square one. This faux cowl-neck/cowboy wrap thing is my latest solution. I like the way it can brighten up an otherwise dull outfit, and add a little texture.
Then I threw my book, a towel, the camera and a bottle of beer (don’t tell Metro!) into my pannier and set off. At just about 70 degrees and only 50% humidity it was a beautiful day for a ride.
Book! (Louisa May Alcott: The Woman Behind Little Women, for the curious.)
Beer! And yes, kind of a budget brew. But delicious!
And last but not least, BIKE!
A great way to relax before embarking on a fun-filled weekend.
