We drove out to Long Island to relax at Long Beach. Long Beach is quiet, beautiful, and worth the drive. You manage to skip the crowds, which is a huge plus for us. I get too worried about the kids when there are what feels like hundreds of kids that look just my kids on a crowded beach. I always fear I'll mistake one as my own, and then lose site of my own. Has that ever happened to you? One of my old friends would put bright clothes on her child in situations like that. A bright pink jacket in the cooler months, and a funky hat in the summer. I think the idea is genius.
Naked, a long time partner, sent us a few of their organic and fair trade certified coconut waters to give a good run on our next outing in the heat. The coconut water arrived just in time for this hot day... and week. And I kept dipping in the fridge throughout the week to replenish every chance I got.
A few more photos behind the break.
Thank you New York for having these great escapes right outside the city, I always seem to forget they exist.
