Yesterday I went to the beach. It was in the low 70s and I had the day off!
Isn’t it just beautiful? And surprise! It’s only a subway ride from central Manhattan–and still in New York City! Coney Island may be known for Nathan’s hot dogs and the cyclone rollercoaster. But it’s also got a beautiful sandy beach. Who’d have thunk this is in a city?
Also surprising is that I took these photos with my iPhone. I know these aren’t as good as they would have been if I’d brought my canon, but I hadn’t really expected to be so awed and, well, surprised, by Coney Island. Although, I suppose, that’s the point of surprises. At least my iPhone takes a reasonable photo, even with zoom–the second surprise of my day.
