The Weekend | Winter Adventures at Brooklyn Bridge Park

This weekend started off with a Girl's Day on Saturday. I trekked up to Queens for brunch, painting, and a bit of gossiping. There are a couple of pics on my Instagram. The whole day was a consistent downfall of snow. It wasn't as cold as it had been though, so to me, it was quite pretty. When I woke up Sunday morning, it sounded like a down pour, but really, it was all that snow melting. Seems like spring may just be on it's way.

Since it was significantly much warmer than it has been, Preston & I decided to spend the afternoon at Brooklyn Bridge Park. One of our favourite places- you may remember seeing similar pics (but with leaves) in this post.

And of course, we decided to bring Djiggy (a.k.a. the drone) as the battery would not instantly shut off from the cold like it did on a trip to Prospect Park.

I love this stained glass house art piece.  It's so colourful against the city backdrop. I hope it's there for awhile as I have now seen it in fall and winter and would love to continue that in spring and summer.

I kind of got obsessed with all the different kinds of pods on the trees. These are so neat looking, like little polka dots, very Dr. Seuss.

Yup, more pods. And the Brooklyn Bridge, of course.

We got some awesome footage from the drone trip. Though, it seems something always goes a bit awry, and this time it was the camera dying after 1.5 minutes. At least it was an amazing one and a half minutes. I am trying to think of a good way to share some of the footage. The drone vids on their own are gorgeous, but I feel it needs more context to fill it out. Perhaps, some vlogging is in our future...

What were you up to this weekend?
Will winter ever end??
