sunday afternoon.

17 May 2012

After our long walk from Brooklyn into Manhattan, we rewarded ourselves with bowls of cold soba at Cocoron, then headed into Sara Roosevelt Park to relax a bit with our books and the Sunday crossword puzzle.  On the way back to the subway, we came across a bike polo match in one of the park’s playing fields.  These guys were amazing!

Back in Brooklyn, there were some post-wedding shenanigans at 4th Avenue Pub — the former high school friends contingent of the happy couple (congrats, Sam and Jon!) caught up while yours truly, the random photographer lady who hadn’t been invited to the actual wedding, wandered around with her camera.

This was just the afternoon part of Sunday!  I wish I had photographic evidence of that morning’s lazing around while watching the last day of English Premier League matches (seriously, did you guys see that Man City – QPR match?!), some relatively speedy downing of some breakfast sandwiches at Mile End (we were trying to get back in time to watch the tail end of the matches), and then wandering first onto the Brooklyn Promenade and then into Dumbo, everywhere full of folks soaking in the glorious weather.  In the evening Mike and I settled into our weekly tradition of pizza-and-Game of Thrones‘ing — a merry affair that involves debriefing each other on our respective weeks, ordering pizza from a fairly questionable (and yet still so weirdly delicious) delivery place, and you know, all of that fantasy/medieval swordsmanship stuff.   Always with a wee nip of whiskey, too.

This entire Sunday: picture perfect.

Congrats again, guys!
