So I'm really glad I kept this Weebly app on my phone. I meant to write this via my computer; unfortunately, when I went to the website I completely blanked on which email/password I used. So instead of struggling, I'm just going to do this.
This past week had been my laziest time in NY. I left work early around 3 on Wenesday--I wanted to be back early to help Lori clean for her guests that came over (and got to tag along and get a super nice meal when they went out for dinner). Thursday I left work around 12:30 and I proceeded to do almost nothing for the rest of my weekend.
I had the house to myself because the family left for Virginia Thursday morning. I read a few books, watched a couple of movies, and went running twice. I went down to the water Friday night where I could see 2 firework shows that where happening downtown, one of which I'm sure where the Macy's fireworks. If you looked closely enough, you could also see firework shows that were happening in NJ. I left after 40 min or so--it was super windy and a bit chilly.
Saturday, I gathered up my courage to visit the NY Fencing Academy. Too bad it was closed. The building is literally 100 feet from the sprawl of shacks and sketchy rides known as Coney Island.
Don't get me wrong, I guess I'm glad I got to visit Coney Island..it's set up so you can walk all around and you buy tickets if you want to go on a ride, but it just oozed of something that was once great that's trying to hold on to that old glory...does that make since? I saw rickity stalls and rides, super long lines to get a hot dog or ice cream, and I didn't even ask how much a mojito was (though the free refill tempted me). At least I saw the ocean...too bad I had to look past the sea of people.
In summary, if you never go to Coney Island, you're not missing anything.
At least I'm caught up with Legend of Kora :)
