Today was positively gorgeous. 64, sunny and breezy (OK, windy)? Spending today in the city would have been wonderful, but I scammed a ride out to Long Beach, on Long Island, to walk on the boardwalk and enjoy the weather. What a great day! It's not the most gorgeous boardwalk I have ever seen, but the sandy beach is an awesome change from Connecticut. There is NO sand in the Long Island Sound - just rocks and mud! And the waves out there were so much bigger. Here are some pictures of the ocean!
