Shopping Around in a Long Blue Dress

I like to go shopping during off-peak hours when fewer people are clogging the stores. so I crept away from work a little early and went in search of a few goodies. I put my quick release basket on the front with a blue reusable shopping bag and set out on my journey.

The temperature was about 85 degrees with 66% humidity. I wore a very long, floor-grazing, blue print sundress with blue flip-flops and Dior light-tinted sunglasses. (Note the absence of heels. I decided to "rough it" in flats, lol.)

The dress is long and flowing. I had no problem riding my bike in it. Actually, I loved the way it caught the wind and added instant "air conditioning".

It's really hard taking photos of myself on my bike. I really need to practice my "panda shots"...

My first stop was Sahadi in Brooklyn Heights. They didn't have what I was looking for so off I went...

... Onto Fairway... A huge store with a ton of great items. They have everything from organic food to fresh produce to live lobster. They even have a cafe. It's always good shopping at Fairway.

I chuckled when I saw the sign hanging over the olive bar (pictured below). Among the olives I picked were ones stuffed with Habanero chili peppers. I'm the only person I know that can eat them without batting an eyelash. (I love spicy food!)

After my quick run inside, I emerged to see these two cuties loading up their backpacks with their groceries and heading off on their bikes.

I took a little ride down the road to a nice little pier along the waters' edge... And, yes, that is a freshly-cooked, french baguette sticking out of the top of my basket. :)

There I found lavender and other flowers. Among them, the bees were working hard. (I like bees.) :)

In the photo below, you can see the Statue of Liberty off in the distance toward the top left...

Leaving the pier I turned down a street with the most curious shop on it... I loved the way they had a child's tricycle mounted on the facade (along with a lot of other things).

I cycled home, happily, looking forward to a great meal tonight...


  1. I have yet to attempt a "panda" I am still at the phase of constantly worrying that I am going to crash into something or someone if I try to signal a turn. I really like your shadow pic.

  2. Nice trip it seemed like and beautiful pics.
