With a great friend
20.07.2008 - 20.07.2008
Today I woke up and was instantly bored with my apartment and of Manhattan all together. Not to mention that it was SUCH a HOT summer day.
I called my good friend Josh, asking him if he wanted to head down to Coney Island with me to hit up the beach. It would be the first time I was in the water in New York.
He agreed it would be a great day to get some sun and some time in the cool water.
It was also a great day for cold beers on the beach. I left those for Josh to drink, I'm not a big fan of beers.
Did you know that there are these people out on the beach that walk around all day selling cold water and beers. It's legal to sell water, but it's not legal to sell beer. So they do it on the down low. They yell load about their cold waters, and then get real close and whisper to you that they have beer as well. I think it's pretty funny. We gave in and bought two beers. Thinking I might like one, but after one sip decided I didn't.
Oh and they carry bags of lime too, they come prepared! Limes cost extra of course.
We had a lot of fun at the beach. I swear we just floated in the water for about an hour. It was so nice.
I was much happier to be at the beach than I was in my scorching hot apartment.
Having sand in your toes is much better than having sweat drip down your face in your Brooklyn apartment.
A great day!
