Good Morning Everyone!
I bet you’re all happy it’s Friday. I have fun plans for today and want to share my photos before I head out. I know my posts have been short and choppy, but it’s better than nothing. I’m trying to go out and enjoy the area, spend lots of time working out, and catch up on homework.
I’ve been going on little one mile walks 5-7 times a day with Kona. This little fluff ball has so much energy and loves being outside. We can’t get around the block without someone stopping to pet him. He’s like a real life teddy bear.
And he has his routines with everyone. It’s funny because when we walk down the street, people know his name. We wake up at five am for our first walk of the day. I’m starting to enjoy getting up this early, and my days feel much longer. It is pretty chilly though!
Karlee and I decided to set out on a bike ride yesterday to explore D.C.
Shaughna and Mike left us their awesome E-bikes. Remember when I rode them last time I was here?
It was one of prettiest rides I have ever been on. The trails were filled with fallen leaves and the sun was shining.
I had my camera around my neck and I kept snapping photos.
We rode over to the Mt. Vernon Trail and took that all the way to the monuments.
We stopped every 3-5 miles to take photos.
I love the Mt Vernon trail because most of the ride is along the water.
Best place to snap some photos! I’m aware that nothing I’m wearing matches 😉 It’s the comfort that counts.
You can see the monuments from across the way.
There is nothing more fun than being a tourist on a bike.
I think my favorite part of the bike ride is going over the 14th St Bridge (George Mason Memorial). You feel the rush of the traffic, the wind from the water, and the view is gorgeous. We went over the bridge at night last time I was in D.C. and it was breathtaking.
Of course we had to stop and take some touristy shots!
The Thomas Jefferson Memorial Monument.
The Washington Monument reflecting on the water.
Scoot over segways! Did you hear about the guy who invented the segway…?
Have you ever been to the Lincoln memorial? Did it shock you to see how big Lincoln’s statue was? T.V. and photos make it look so much smaller!
Taking selfies on heavy bikes is always safe. We loved our egg-head helmets.
Beautiful day at the park.
This is another one of my favorite spots. SO many movies filmed here. Hey, Kerry Washington! Yo, Kevin Spacey!
We ended up riding around some more and exploring little areas.
It was such a beautiful day 🙂
Kona and I went on a walk when we got back and several more throughout the day.
Around six pm, I headed out for a five mile run and then stopped at Whole Foods with my brother to grab a salad. I came back, caught up on Nashville, and studied!
My salad was delicious, but the Bai5 sparkling pineapple infusion was out of this world!
It’s safe to say that I’m exhausted this morning!
What are you guys doing this weekend?
