soaking up summer

This past weekend (pre-hurricane) a group of us decided to capitalize on summer and go on a 30 mile bike ride out to waterfalls with the added bonus that these waterfalls happen to be right next to the best brewery around.

game face ON, check. (~9am)

and we're off! check out that beautiful scenery in the background

we stopped at a farmer's market about 25 miles in and got some fresh tomatoes!

and then we got to the beautiful falls and iced our tired legs in the cold water!

and jumped off cliffs!

and got a little bit zen...

or not (she scraped her legs swimming under the waterfall)

and made new friends (we're collecting rocks)

check out that beautiful waterfall - oooh summer.

and then finally we got to go here for delicious local food and the best beer in the area.
my favorite was the pepper, chocolate stout
(of course about two sips in, I was ready for a nap - oohhh medical school)

the end.

"Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief
that all is right with the world.
-Ada Louise Huxtable
