Because I was doing the NYC 5 Boro Bike Tour, and I had to register for that the day before, I took advantage of that fact to see friends Libby and Steve in Brooklyn. They treated me to a glorious time a the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, which was bursting in bloom with cherry blossoms, wisteria, azaleas, lilacs, peonies, and tulips, all somehow magnificent simultaneously. Since I was traveling light, I craved my real camera, but did okay as you can see here with just my iPhone5.
Afterwards, Steve made his amazing signature fish tacos, then I crashed at their place happily to get up and slip out at 4:45 in the morning for my biking adventure. Thank you Libby and Steve for a great time!
