A Bit of Brooklyn

After a fun and exhausting few days at the US Open, it was such a treat to meet up with our friends Jen and Jim in Brooklyn. They served up a gourmet breakfast of waffles, berries and fresh whipped cream (yum!). After eating Jen took us on a stroll through the Brooklyn waterfront. As we walked down the end of their street, I was blown away with the scene in front of me: you had the sky scrapers of lower Manhattan, the iconic Brooklyn Bridge and even the Statue of Liberty off in the distance. Needless to say, I couldn't stop snapping photos.

After walking along the waterfront and seeing how the various warehouses and docks had been turned into sport fields and playgrounds, we made our way to Atlantic Avenue where we picked up some essentials for our ride home (read: fresh bagels, fresh pita and fresh fruit). Of course we passed a Cat Cafe, because, you know, it's Brooklyn. Oh, and we also passed a pop-up pool, again, because why shouldn't you have a little beach oasis in the city?

After days of watching tennis, there's could be no bigger treat than hanging with friends and taking in the sites of the city. Thanks Jen and Jim!
