A Ward's Island Sunday Afternoon

This past weekend was absolutely amazing - mainly because it's the first weekend in a long time where I didn't find myself working. On Sunday, my roommate Rob and I traveled downtown to Union Square to check out the Greenmarket there. Turns out, we should've checked the Greenmarket hours since they're only on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. The trip downtown was ultimately worth it since there was a Trader Joe's just a block away. Jackpot.

Since the weather was so nice, Rob and I decided to walk across Ward's Island bridge when we got back uptown (which is directly behind our apartment) and sit by the East River. How lucky are we? I still pinch myself to believe that this is my backyard. We brought some reading material and just relaxed with the sun beaming down upon us and the wind gently keeping the heat at bay. I could get used to this.

I had brought my camera along to capture some gorgeous shots of Manhattan, but I made the mistake of leaving my memory card in the reader. A photographer's worst nightmare. Luckily I still had my phone on me so I could snap some shots on Instagram. To follow along more of my adventures, follow me there. My username is jennifhsieh. :)

  2. Yay for not having to work on a weekend! FREEDOM. >:D heehe, I'm glad that you were able to take a break from all the crazy, and also that you found a lovely market to go to (which is next to a Trader Joe's? I'm jealous you even have one in your area!).
