New York City Vacation ~ Day 5
Protests and Roller Girls
Day 5 started out to an odd tune. We had all decided to go out for breakfast instead of staying in. The city was nice in the earlier morning hours. After we left a little restaurant and on our way back to the apartment to pick up our bags (we're going back to Coney Island today!) we saw our first New York City drama! - A protest was going on right at the entrance to the subway!
We stood around and watched it for a little while before giving up trying to figure out -what- they were actually protesting. Lord knows, really. We had bigger fish to fry.. we're going back to Coney Island today! We're going to enjoy the beach some and test out some roller skates!
It was wonderful to be able to enjoy this part of Coney Island. It felt great to be able to come down here and put my toes int he sand and relax some. Ivy and I laid out some blankets and I helped her get her swim suit on and put on her sunscreen.
I got into my suit and sunscreened myself too. We both went to the waters edge where Maelie and Corbin were. It was nice to slip our toes in the water. Shortly after that Corbin went up to the docks to try and get some fishing in. I watched the girls starr building a sand castle.
After quite some time the girls finally finished!
After we were through with that we decided we'd like to try some roller skating on the boardwalk! I sat each of the girls down and helped them with their socks and skates before putting my own on. This would be interesting I'd not had roller skates on since I was a lot younger.
After some fun skating on the boardwalk and down the pier some we worked up an appetite. Ivy had been asking for a sno-cone and Giselle had wanted some cotton candy. So we skated on into the park and got our selves a snack. It was getting to be evening now and soon we'd have to head home. This would be our last visit to Coney Island .. so, we got on one last ride too.
This was really a wonderful evening. I couldn't have asked for better weather and more fun. The sun was setting and it was time to end another day in New York.
