Kathleen got up early this morning and went and ran the Turkey Trot in Harbor East. I originally intended to get up and ride around and take pictures as I have for the past couple of years (2011, 2010.) but I flaked and slept in instead :). But this afternoon we did go out for a ride around the city. We headed out to Fort McHenry which meant a trip up the Federal Hill segment on Strava. I knew this was coming and powered my way up to a PR :). Kathleen got the women's KOM (king of the mountain) on the same segment, and was faster than I up it. Then we rolled through the neighborhoods on our way to Fort Ave.
Once on Fort it was out to Fort McHenry (cleverly situated at the end of Fort Ave).
On our way back up Key Highway I managed to take a rolling self portrait with Kathleen, love the fact that the roads are so empty this afternoon.
We ended up going up the epic Calvert Street grade at North Ave we spotted this mosaic on a rowhouse.
Then we continued across North Ave with the intent of cutting back over to Broadway for the newly painted bike lanes. On our way we passed this school with groovy art out front.
Then it was back down to the house, this is the view down the hill from Pratt & Chester, Kathleen pointed out the various elements, the church, the water, and the ships across the way.
Then it was home to get cleaned up and getting Thanksgiving dinner together. Here is Kathleen moving the pork roast (from our local farmers market dontcha know).
And the full extent of the destruction in the Kitchen, this will be my problem after dinner :)
But the dinner was delicious, hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving.
