Ah, 3-day-weekends.  We were able to make a quick getaway from the city to hang out with Joy/Corey in the woods!

They have a bar, but no food – so we gathered in the private parking lot to eat some Pie Hole

I’m already one of The Hart and The Hunter’s biggest fans, so of course I had to see the team’s newest project – The Ladies Gunboat Society at Flores.
