This past weekend I went on a day trip with a friend to Coney Island seeing as my NY experience would be incomplete without a visit. We had corn dogs and "Jumbo" margarita icees, rode the Thunderbolt which was awesome and of course went around the Wonder Wheel.
For some reason I had this idea in my head that the place would look very different. I'd imagined it all on a pier above water, with the waves under foot. I'm not sure if I'm thinking of some other place but I couldn't get the idea out of my head. So I wandered around happy and mildly confused and accepting of where I landed.
We went to watch the Brooklyn Cyclones play later that night, and chowed down on pretzels and chili dogs washed down with ice cold Brooklyn Lagers. It was sort of the perfect day. The unexpected, I wasn't ready for it, but totally glad I just went for it sort of day that makes you wistful and nostalgic before you even leave.
