As we rode away, Robin said to me, "You know how mint grows. I can see us coming back here in five years for your housewarming party and this whole hillside being filled with mint."
"We can pick some for the mint chocolate brownies we serve for dessert," I suggested. (See how to make candied mint here .)
And in that moment of shared belief in the power of simple actions, I knew exactly why Robin is my friend.
Oh, and yes, we rode through the mixed-use new development area (homes/restaurants/shops/greenspace/office space) that is becoming my favorite. I shot a very short video of it for you (the audio disappears in the middle--please note I was riding my bike while shooting it and holding onto the handlebars).
