We had a blast this fourth of July weekend. It was jam packed and left things a bit crazy for the following work week, but it was well worth it. Saturday we had brunch and a nice long walk to and from the farmers market. As for Sunday, we woke up early to head to Rockaway Beach. It was our first real visit to a New York City beach, and it wasn't as bad as our Floridian minds feared.
We had fun taking pictures, digging in the sand, and drinking straight from coconuts.
Monday night we climbed up our fire escape to watch fireworks from the roof. We used to be able to see several launch points, but the erection of overpriced condos is going strong on our block. Even so, I need more rooftop evenings in my life.
