so last night,
the boyf & i explored
a new part of town
by bike,
and we rode up on



i knew i wanted
to try out the challenge of
exploring a new part of town,
but thought,
"hey, i know every part o' town there is!
how will i ever explore something new??"

the boyf and i took a late-afternoon-into-twilight ride

Alley Pond Trail in Bellerose
Kissena Park in Flushing,

okay, well,
Happy Snappy Thursday!
i got my
*aunt Laura's*

a short presentation to do
