I spent the past President’s Day weekend in Atlanta, which, in the post-Super Bowl lull, seemed particularly content and locally-focused. There were many highlights of the trip – amazing food at every turn, the airport’s delightful “plane train,” the beautiful weather on Saturday – but by far the most memorable was our adventures with Bird. It’s a noun, it’s a verb, it’s a staple of the community— and it’s everywhere! Their motorized scooters are surprisingly sturdy and so much fun, when you don’t take them down slippery streets after dark (let’s pretend I don’t have two skinned knees and a couple huge bruises). Birding through Atlanta may have left me wounded, but I’m still campaigning for them to expand to my neighborhood! Here are some pictures of the weekend.

Some of my favorite spots in Atlanta:
