It turned out to be a little less idyllic than I was hoping—packed with people, noisy, strewn about with trash, cooler than expected on what had been a very hot day—so we likely won't try it again, at least in the summer. Maybe the Rockaways would be a little more peaceful. Hopefully Rhode Island, where we're going in August, will be.

Weekday Wanderings - Coney Island Picnic
On Monday, we took a spontaneous after-work trip to Coney Island for a picnic. R. grabbed my bathing suit, our picnic blanket, and some leftovers for dinner, and we met up at the subway by the beach.
But, I'm glad we did it. It's rare to do something so spontaneous on a weeknight for us, and it's just a small and easy way to add a little adventure into our lives. Last night, we went to a Mexican restaurant we'd never been to before, about a mile south of our apartment. Here's to trying new things!
