Memorial Day Weekend in Georgia

I would do a training post this week, but there’s not much to talk about:

Total miles: 7.4
Total time: 1hr, 12min

Inspiring, no?

What I did do this week was find our future apartment (haven’t signed the lease yet, but we’ve applied, been approved, and should sign the lease soon), and then head out of town for a few days to spend time with friends.

Good morning whatever state we're in. Tennessee at this moment.

Driving through Tennessee on the way to Atlanta(ish), GA.

We did a lot of this. Chilling and (not pictured) grilling.

The Georgia Aquarium. The little girl was one of our hosts for the weekend, the other kid is just some overexcited kid at the aquarium.

Whale shark. Maybe two, I can’t tell if the one at the top is the same.

Beers on tap at Against the Grain in Louisville

Stopped for dinner at Against the Grain brewery in Louisville. Best beer names ever. I tried Oats & Hose, which was pretty great. 

Saw a guy walking his pet tortoise in downtown Louisville. What.

Saw a guy walking his pet tortoise after dinner. Obviously had to take a picture. 

So, running aside, this week was a success because after looking at four more apartments, we found an apartment in our price range worth living in. And we took our first trip out of town together since going to Galena for our fourth anniversary. We recently celebrated our sixth anniversary. We were obviously overdue.

  1. Yay! Congrats on the new place! And your anni trip!

    I feel like I should download that turtle pic and show it to anyone who gives me a weird look for walking Data 🙂

  2. Woo hoo!!! Loved seeing all the pictures from the aquarium, and can’t wait to hear about the new apartment!!! Does this mean that all of us city folk will be able to see you and hang out with you more!?!?!?!?

  3. I’m so happy to hear you found an apartment! Where did you end up? I hope moving goes well! (I don’t envy you there!)

    I love a good road trip, especially one that includes a brewery visit. And that guy walking the turtle is awesome!

  4. Congrats on finding an apt! I hope Olive will like her new digs 😉

    Happy anniversary! Looks like you had a wonderful time in GA and the brewery! That tortoise being walked… Epic. Don’t see that everyday.
