the snapper

I neglected to mention a fun part of our one year wedding anniversary and wanted to right my wrong.

We woke up early to go for a long bike ride (13+ miles) on the towpath. In the process we saw the "deepest Erie canal lock keep:"

And a snapping turtle that hand wandered onto the path:

Don't worry about the turtle. I used my foot to nudge it to safety. It snapped at me at one point so that was cool. It was a really refreshing way to start our day. Jon said I probably saved a cyclist's life (not the turtle's) by moving him. I like to say I saved two lives. ;)

Once home, we freshened up and headed out to Olive Garden (don't judge). We engaged in bottomless [does anyone else get a rather strange visual at the term "bottomless" or am I alone on this?] soup, salad, and breadsticks and concluded with a piece of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake. Shout out to our friends Courtney and Mike for giving us an Olive Garden gift card as a housewarming present--you paid for our anniversary lunch! Thank you!
