I had the afternoon free after meeting my writing goals in the morning, so–surprise, surprise–I took the bike out for a ride. After bzzzzzzzing for Spain with N., I rode over to the Mississippi River levee patch and zipped quickly along with a strong tailwind. Oh, it was so beautiful out there today and the river was running high and the sun was warm and I had nowhere to be. Yeah, it was that sort of day. I hopped off the levee at Dakin and rode around Hollygrove for a bit. I stopped and waited waited waited with early rush hour traffic on Monroe, trying to cross Earhart. I snapped this photo while I waited. The building in the background is being demolished, I think, and the materials are being sorted in this lot, I think. Those stacks of tiles might be new materials, though–they are all stacked up like they’ve been shipped in, right? This might be a building coming down (and I think it is), but it could also be a building going up. The in-between could be either, I guess, depending on your perspective. Living here, I think I’m more used to the coming down. I finally made it across Earhart and continued my ride over to Mid-City to scope a little camping gear and then enjoy Free Wednesdays at the museum. A ride around the park and then back Uptown via Hollygrove and Carrollton, and home. Summertime in full effect.
