Well, that came out to be a really good day. I got there a little later then I had wanted to, off of maybe at least 4 hours of sleep. But I was ready for this.
It was raining on the way down while taking the metro, and I was worried the ground would still be a bit wet because skating on a wet surface is not fun. It was mostly dry by the time I had my blades on and started going up and down the route. getting everything I could. As the day went on it did get warmer, and when the parade ended I kept going up and down the street to get anything else I can find.
At one moment, while walking on the sidewalk I heard this thump, looked over and see a cup that feel out of the window of a top floor apartment. I got their attention and the person came down stairs to put up the cup and invited me up to join the party. So did not expect but I liked. Guy also had a nice view of the ocean. After I was done there I went back down to take more photos and headed back home soon after words.
Oh what a glorious day.
