Memorial Day

Goggla took a trip to Coney Island earlier this week, and has the usual beautiful photographs to show for it.  Check out The Gog Log to see them.
I was there this afternoon, and the place was PACKED.  Though I usually like things a bit quieter there ( a weekday afternoon is fine), it was fun to start off the summer this way.  The lines for food and beer were long, & Ruby's was jammed.  We had beers and hot dogs at Paul's Daughter instead, and even got a table.  Just sit, and the city parades right past just for you. I looked around a bit on Surf, and strolled the boardwalk a short distance, but mostly stayed by Paul's.  How free it felt to be there. I came home tired and thirsty, with the faint start of a suntan.  Here are a couple of pictures.  More later.

I'm so glad Paul's Daughter is able to stay. What a great way to spend a sunny holiday afternoon - sitting on the boardwalk and watching the world go by! There's really no other place like it.

I agree with Goggla about Paul's Daughter. And it's wonderful that Ruby's has a long lease!
