It’s been a rough day, but not for the usual reasons. I had to be to work two hours earlier than usual for a meeting, but I got to leave two hours early. Woo hoo!
I’m just a little tired. As I mentioned in last night’s post, I was taking a walk across the bridge last night.
You have probably figured out by now that while I literally did walk across the bridge into Bangor, that term is also code for “I’m going on a date”.
The reason I’m so tired today is because I was out late last night on the best first date I’ve been on in ages. So keep your fingers crossed for me.
I took some photos on my walk, and I wanted to share them with you…
This is the shoreline on my side of the bridge. Not exactly a beach for a vacation destination, but at least no bodies have washed up on it (…lately).
Not much traffic at 7:00pm. Pretty much everyone was already downtown for the Lady Antebellum concert.
Just beyond the other bridge, and off to the right, is where they hold the concerts. I told you they were very close to The House on the Hill, and this is why I can hear them loud and clear from my living room.
I really didn’t think I’d ever again see that gorgeous blue water. So glad it’s back because that means the Mermaids have returned as well.
I tried to get you a photo of one, but none of them were out last night…
Can you see the boats on the other side of the bridge? That’s right next to where the concert was being held. I’m sure there were Lady Antebellum fans on those vessels, and they planned to enjoy the concert on the water.
It was a gorgeous night for it.
Usually, when I get to about this point on the bridge, my nerves really kick in. Last night, however, it wasn’t as bad. I asked Ana for a pep talk before I left the house. Everyone knows Vampires are wise because they’ve been around much longer than the rest of us, and they’ve seen it all.
Ana had some Deep Thoughts for me that I focused on during my walk. They seemed to have done the trick because I was very relaxed.
I tried to get an action photo, but this was the best I could do. I’m a Modern Philosopher with a smartphone. Not exactly the best set up for a photo to catch the excitement…
I’ve mentioned this several times in my dating tips posts: always get there early. That way you can scope out the place, find all the exits, and look relaxed and nonchalant when your date arrives. Here I am following my own advice…
It seemed close enough to touch. I did my best to capture it, but again, crappy smartphone cameras weren’t meant to be used for such epic photos.
This is a shot of my grocery cart from this afternoon. You can safely say that she definitely made an impression on me.
And a very good one at that…
Looks like my phone is out of photos. Hope you enjoyed this little photo tour.
Happy Friday! (And please remember to keep your fingers crossed!)
