Happy Friday! Can’t you just taste the weekend a mere few hours away? This week seemed long, but was actually very productive and busy.
This weekend I am heading to one of my favorite places in the world for the first time this summer. I am so looking forward to a relaxing break, some fresh seafood, and the always calming to me salt water.
Last weekend, in a desperate attempt to find the ocean, the boy and I ventured to Jacob Riis Park. I had never heard of the park, but read about it in Time Out New York as a quick beach “staycation.” I’ll admit, I had never ventured to a “New York” beach. The Hamptons sounded snooty, the rest dirty, and I frankly had no interest. But I was craving the sand and am so glad we ventured out! We took the subway to the bus to find a quiet, diverse beach with clean water, a huge expanse of sand, and a hot dog on the boardwalk. Plus, how often do you see New York City on the horizon of the ocean?
