We left this past Friday and drove up to our friend Rudy's house. His name isn't really Rudy, which sort of tells you what kind of guy he is.... a funny one, that's for sure. I went for a walk and Brian and Rudy went mountain bike riding. I got blisters, but Brian got messed up, some sort of calf muscle strain, plus blood all over his shin, crazy. What he was really mad about was messing up his MTB frame. Poor thing, he's still tore up about it.
The next day I bailed on the guys and went adventuring. First I went to Leif Erikson Park, and walked on the lakeshore collecting beach glass.

|Lots and lots of little pebbles to sift through for beach glass|
|Blustery but beautiful - more Canal Park/Lift Bridge with bridge to WI in the far background|
|I even saw a barge. Sweet!|
|Cold but happy!|
After I warmed up a little, I met my friend Jennifer at Yarn Harbor and bought some yarn. Pictures later, sorry! We went over to Bixby's and hung out, knitting and talking, for over 4 hours! Pretty awesome stuff. I met Jen when I was still awfully rough around the edges, 14 years old, talking smart and breaking shit. Funny that we'd both end up mellowed out knitters ten years later! What a cool connection.
I met up with the boys at Pizza Luce for some serious vegan pizza action, ZOMG. Our friend Drew joined us as well. Silly boys!
|Brian, Rudy, Drew|
|Hot damn we love vegan pizza|
|"Eek! 'Interesting' is code for fun and dangerous, isn't it?!?"|

|What was at the bottom of the rocks|
|Yeah, it's not stopping him.|
|Knit a few rows.|
|Sock in the Wild!|
