Training day

Took the subway to Jamaica Pond. We looked cute with our backpacks strapped with fishing rods. We got off train and walked through the shortest way of the Arnold Arboretum. I fell in love with all the trees and now want to plant one of each in our tiny little yard. A bit Tuck Everlasting fairy tale inspired.

From the arboretum we continued to Jamaica Pond where we found a little spot on a not very flat bank to sit and slide while picnicking and fishing. I lost my lure and bobber, pretty pissed.

However, after naps in the sun and a few great casts, we packed up and when to the main drag of JP. Had cappuccino cake, chili and garlic bread, a really great 22oz beer to myself and Tyler's usual beer and shot, and grabbed a cab home. Oh, not before I fell on the sidewalk and scrapped my leg. That's what you get for wearing summer dresses and flip flops. I'll take it.

Last night was the first night of beers on the back porch. Or anything on the back porch! So excited spring and warm evenings are really here!

After three days of subsisting on Fringe, junk food, Candy Crush, and copious amounts of sleep, we emerged today with a sense of productivity.

Spring cleaned the inside and outside of the house, brewed beer, and, well, played more candy crush and fringe. Slow withdrawal. We'll get there

Horn pond debut

We took our debut run on Horn Pond. I waved at my dream house for the season opener on our way there. There were cops everywhere and we thought maybe they found a body in the water. But the parking lot and ramp were wide open and after some parking and dog and walking folk and men in waders negotiation, we were off on the water.

Tyler's buddy. He's called "Dinner".

Portsmouth Home

Last minute overnight in Portsmouth. Of course that means beer beer and more beer. Ah, but we finally found The Dolphin Striker after all these years! SUCH a good pick up band!

We went boating!

Lots of birds up in 'dem trees. Can't really see them, though. ↓

Right before it started to rain, the shimmer on the water was gorgeous.
