Walked three miles today from my apartment over the Brooklyn Bridge and then back. It was a scorcher of a day, but lots of fun! By the end I had to practically drag Rheana because she was so tired, she kept just lying down in shady spots and refusing to move, so adorable! She has now been passed out for the last 5 hours, she can be a real pain sometimes, but totally adorable too! (see last picture) If your thinking of doing the walk I would suggest earlier in the day before the heat and the crowds descend. Also walk hungry so you can indulge in a slice of Grimaldi’s pizza or an ice cream cone once you’re in Brooklyn. The line at Grimaldi’s is always long, I skipped it today because it was too hot to wait, but if you go in the morning you can beat those lines. Also if you’re doing the walk with a dog make sure to bring some small bowl so he/she can have a drink, it is hot and crowded and Rheana and I stopped about 6 times for her to have a drink of water.
