Bicycle ride + TLV boardwalk = Fun afternoon

Last Monday morning I worked the morning shift at the restaurant, which was followed by the weekly managers meeting in the afternoon. I rode my bicycle to work, as I do every time I have a shift. My someone, who is also a shift manager at the restaurant, showed up for the meeting on his bicycle too, which was rather unusual for him, as he normally rides his motorbike. But he didn't just bring his bicycle. Nope, he had a whole plan. He brought a change of cloths for me (I was more elegantly dressed for that morning shift...), and he brought my beloved camera as well. As soon as the meeting was over I made a quick change, and we both hopped on our bicycles and headed towards the beach's boardwalk. We rode north towards Tel-Aviv port, and then continued a little further up the path until we reached half way through Sde Dov Airport. The entire ride, going there and back, was about 14 km, and it was entirely along the beach line. We started about two hours before the beginning of sunset, and when we reached Yafo again (the south of TLV, where we started) the sun was already setting. It was such a fun ride, stopping along the way to snap a few photos, as well as a quick pizza (=energy) break at Beta Pizza in the TLV port area (if you say that quick "betapizza" it's as though you're saying Beit Ha' Pizza, which translates to "the house of pizza"...).
Here are some of the snaps we took

Tel Aviv's power station

I was photographing myself, not him... :)

They had a Basil plant on each table!

Pizza makes you do funny faces while eating it!
