What a long yet amazing and crazy day.
It started out like any other ordinary Friday that I have had lately: Get up, shower, get food and then go out for the day and not come home until after dinner time.
Today, to celebrate my best friends birthday, we went for hike at Tryon Creek State Park. There are some horse trails that you have to walk along for a little bit to get from certain pedestrian paths to other pedestrian paths, so I had mentioned to watch our step so we didn’t step in Horse Manure, as I didn’t want it in my car, as it would be a nightmare to get off the floor mats and get the smell out of the city car (if I had a work truck and Weathertech floor liners I wouldn’t have cared as much).
It was also raining when we went out hiking in the first place so my pants go wet and muddy and at one point I had said something about “its ok, I am wearing my Adventure Pants” and my friend was like “Adventure Pants, that’s a good one, you have to put that in your blog post”, so here it is, in my post.
After our hike, we sat in the covered shelter, and are our lunches before heading to the NW industrial area to go to a tea shop. Yes I know going to an industrial area to get tea sounds crazy, it sounded crazy to me too, but it exists and we went. We had a great time enjoying tea. We had ordered a tea flight and got to sample 4 different teas. I found one that I really liked so I picked up a box of it to bring home.
I know I have probably mentioned it in previous posts, but I would love to do more of what I did today, explore new places and explore areas I have never been to before. I don’t spend much time in the Pearl District, and this tea shop is not on NW 23rd, or any of the main streets in the Pearl, I loved that it was off the beaten path.
