It was so, so lovely out yesterday, and as luck would have it, my friends wanted to do some adventuring.
Sara and Eli, pictured below, and I walked over the bridge to East Providence (in fact, a different city from Providence proper), and explored down by the river.
On the bridge:
We found an old railway car:
Sara investigated further:
And I partially got over my fear of falling from rickety-looking structures that are in fact quite stable:
And then we had a picnic.
This has simply been the summer of goat cheese.
I can pinpoint when I discovered how much I like goat cheese to a particular day in April. My college’s Spring Weekend, a time of great debauchery which in fact stretches from Tuesday-ish on through the end of the week, has as its main events two large concerts. My roommates and I didn’t get tickets to the MGMT concert on Friday, so instead we decided to have a classy-ass picnic made up of scavengings from our pantry, cheese, and a cheapish bottle of wine. Chevre was consumed, and I’ve never looked back.

In a similar vein, one of those VERY ROOMMATES and I just had a light picnic, at which was consumed a delicious organic hard cider, various fruits, and a heavenly lavender-and-honey infused goat cheese. I could eat it with a spoon. It tastes of joy.
There is a cupcake with very similar flavors at the Duck and Bunny, an extremely cute restaurant.
Sara here exemplifies the correct reaction to this cheese:
