Windmill Point bike ride

After gardening all morning and afternoon, we headed up to Fort Erie to cool off at Windmill Point. The weather was perfect for it (minus the swarms of bugs on the way back).

(e:paul) wanted to stop and swim at this beach on the bike path. Until we walked down and smelled this water

This ultra modern house was being constructed in Ft. Erie. It has a cantilevered second floor jutting out towards the lake.

The water was a mix of warm and cold, but very clean.

I think the best view of Buffalo is from Fort Erie. It looks so much more dense and tree-d than it actually is.

Closing off canalside

Friday night before we rode, they had canalside completely fenced off and packed for Kiss the Summer Hello. While I'm sure the gave the city money for using the space who knows if it comes close to covering costs. It seems ridiculous they get to completely close off and profit off of one of the best public spaces in the city, on a Friday, in our short summer. There are so many other less used city-owned venues, like the outer harbor or Bisons Stadium, they could have used.

Black Rock Kitchen and Bar

After our bike ride to Windmill Point, we met up with (e:mike) and (e:libertad) to get some dinner at Black Rock Bar and Kitchen. They only had one vegetarian option - a spaghetti squash burger - but it was pretty good. At $12, I thought it was pricey.

While we were there, the mayor kept walking up and down the street, and stopped in at one point. Apparently his son works there as a busser.

Chopping down the yard

Saturday we spent most of the morning and afternoon working out in the garden again. (e:terry) chopped down one of the trees in the back corner, and (e:paul) and I chipped it up. We managed to fit the whole tree pile into just two bags.

Paul didn't trust me to trim the hedges straight. but I managed to do one side. Terry finished the rest.

Käsemann at the Farmer's Market

(E:Paul) and I find this man at the Bidwells Farmer's market so hot. The picture in the background shows him and some other guy (brosband?) holding all these baby goats and them making cheese. I'd help him milk the goats.

Friday Party Ride

Last night while (e:paul) and (e:terry) were at a wedding, I decided to go on a bike ride with (e:yesthatcasey), (e:libertad), and our new ginger Joe friend. We rode around for a little bit before deciding to go on the new First Friday party ride.

It was really awesome. Henry from GObike just started it last month. He had a gigantic speaker in a kid's trailer to provide music. We started at Colonial Circle, rode down through the west side, up to the bike path and rose garden, and finished down at the Liberty Hound. There we met Kerry before riding home to meet Paul and Terry.

I can't wait for next month's ride. Every first friday of the month at 8pm, Colonial Circle.

Pride Parade

Sunday, we headed over to the pride parade. (e:paul) had the great idea of using sheets to cover up the protesters - there were only about 5 or 6, so it went perfectly. (e:paul), (e:flacidness), some co-op house kid and I held the sheets and actually ended up chasing them away.

Afterwards was the festival down at Canalside, which had a count of 20,000 people. It was so packed.

The rest of the night was spent having a good time in the backyard. It was pretty much a perfect summer day.

Dyke march

Saturday, after the skyride, we went down to Allen to watch (e:heidi), (e:dianne), (e:xandra) and a bunch of other people we know march in the Dyke March. The weather was perfect and the dancing at the festival after was fun.

Skyride Skyway ride


(e:Paul), (e:terry), (e:yesthatcasey) and I rode the GObike sky ride today. Casey and I volunteered for the preregistration and setup.

The day was perfect for a ride. The skyway itself was a anticlimactic but still very cool.

The ride was about 28 miles, and Paul managed to make it the whole way. I was proud.
