A bike, a park and a film

                                                                     Photo from A view of cities

My H and I were out late, yesterday evening, riding our bikes through the city. We still had a magical warm weather and there were crowded everywhere on the streets and along the river. The restaurants served mostly outside on terraces. When we finally got home I saw that one of my favorite bloggers Bart Boehlert's Beautiful Things had written something new that I had to check out.

As a coincidence, he wrote about when he was riding his bike with a friend. For me it's so natural to take the bike but I'm so fascinated that he does that in NY. But I like it when my view or opinion of something changes and turn out to be something much better than I thought it was. Bart has given me much of that and so have many of the bloggers I follow.

Bart showed some photos from a park and they felt so familiar to me although I've never been there! Than I realized that it was that black iron fence I recognized. I had seen that before and finally I knew that it's from  the film You've got Mail, which Bart wrote later in the post. I love that film so much because it's both romantic and has my kind of humor.  I've seen it many times since I got it for free when I bought my first computer. The end is so good, when Meg Ryan stands in River side Park waiting for Tom Hanks and the dog comes running.... Klick on the link if you want to see it:

Hi Ms. Becky
I happened to show my post before I was ready with it. But you got the most of it.

The warm weather went away faster than it came, but the weather broadcast had warned us so maybe that's why it was so magic. We all knew that we only had hours left with 80° instead of 53° like it is today.

How beautiful it looks Ella! I just came back from a bike ride moments ago. My husband and I rode around some of the neighborhoods along the bay. It was most enjoyable!
Thanks for a beautiful post!

Oh yes! I enjoyed that movie and the pretty park in it!

We enjoy riding bikes here as freeing and fun!
