Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

Me and Brian are more into indoor exercising, such as rock climbing or yoga, but with the warmer weather I have been craving some outdoor fun, and luckily Brian agreed. With my foot still recovering I knew hiking was out of the picture, so we decided to try biking instead. I have not gone biking in a long time and was very happy to do so again, even though we were both exhausted after. We went late enough where it wasn’t too hot and had a great ride exploring the neighborhood and parks nearby. We both have bikes but are probably do for an upgrade, once we are in Charleston it will definitely be on the top of our list.

The store Public, is based in San Francisco, but delivers throughout the US. Here is our favorites:

My favorite is the Dutch Commuter Bike, $679

Brian’s favorite is the Electric Bike, $1999, we will have to save up for that one.

We hope to take another bike ride this weekend. We are also going to a Shovels & Rope concert this evening which I am very excited about.

What are your plans for the weekend? Going outdoors or staying in relaxing?

The weather for the weekend looks great so I hope everyone will get to enjoy some outdoor time. After last week’s busy long weekend, I am ok with just spending this one on the couch. Do you ever need a recovery period after a trip away from home? If you would like to reminisce my trip to Montreal with me and Brian, I would love to share some of our photos.

We were able to rent bikes and ride all over town. Brian enjoyed being silly while photos were being taken.

This is my younger sister Nicole. She tagged along with us and was a great sport.

Nicole had a camera lens that formats all photos to fish eye. We played around with it while waiting for some delicious breakfast.

Brian had a craving for southern food and got lucky that one of the brunch places offered Chicken & Waffles.

The downtown area of Montreal was beautiful and filled with cute little boutiques and a ton of cafes.

Nicole took this picture as we were strolling through Old Montreal.

I think I am starting to enjoy these 3 day trips away, maybe the next one will be to Boston or Philadelphia. How about you, any trips planned?

What are your plans for memorial day weekend? Brian and I are heading to Montreal this weekend. We are going to take a lazy Saturday morning drive up there and most likely spend the rest of the day being sluggish especially since its supposed to rain.

Sunday & Monday will be filled with boutique shopping, food and relaxed biking.

I’m loving this store and all their beautiful leather goods and will definitely regret walking in

As long as the weather holds up we will do a lot of biking. Montreal is the perfect biking city (pic from Bassibikes)

Anyone visit Montreal recently and have some advice for places to see?

Hope everyone has a lovely long weekend.
