This weekend was productive on some fronts, and very much not so on other fronts (read: I was lazy). But the highlight was definitely dinner (messy open-faced sandwiches can be tricky) in the park with a friend on Saturday night. It was beautiful out — thankfully, free of rain — and the type of late spring/pre-summer evening you hope for in the months to come and know you won’t get many times more.
We found an ideal place to eat off the Great Lawn, managed to not spill too much of our sandwiches on the ground, and then took a stroll around, including a quick stop to Belvedere Castle. (Touristy, maybe, but it offers great views of the park, and my friend had never been.) After my friend and I parted ways for the evening, I cut back over to the Reservoir to take some more pictures before heading home.
