Labor Day Bike Rides and Mimosas

Happy Labor Day to ALL!

I started off this lovely morning with a green monster. Don’t you just love GM’s served in beer glasses?! I know I do! I needed fuel for a big bike ride boyf and I were planning on.

Since my nice point and shoot camera is in the shop, I had to bust out my old camera. This dude is struggling to survive! It won’t zoom and it’s pictures are not the greatest, but it will have to do for the next few weeks while my other one gets fixed!

It was so nice having a bike buddy! I love that we can go on fun rides together now! My next goal is to get boyf running with me!!

We biked down West River Drive. On weekends and holidays, they close the roads to cars and its open to bikers and runners. It’s so nice having the whole road open to us!

Boyf and I biked to the Japanese House and Garden in Fairmount Park. It was beautiful out there!

“The Japanese House was designed by Yoshimura Junzoo, built in 1953 in Nagoya, and presented by the America-Japan Society of Tokyo to the Museum of Modern Art New York for exhibition in 1954-55. It was given to the City of Philadelphia and reassembled at the current site in 1958, with a garden designed by Sano Tansai.”

The roofs were a foot thick and made of bark.

After we got our historical fix for the day, boyf and I headed over to Main Street Manayunk on our bikes and hit up Derek’s. They have a fabulous brunch deal with all you can drink bloody mary’s and mimosas! Perfect for post biking all morning!

First they brought out some lovely seasoned bread slices along with some cornbread. YUM!

    omg your breakfast looks amazing. I keep trying to recruit my bf to rent a tandem bike and ride with me. He's told me flat out NO at least 10x. But I'm persistent. Looks like fun.
