On Labor Day Shelby and I thought it would be a fitting end to summer to take a trip out to the beach. So, we hopped on a train down to Coney Island. Check out our first stop of the day to the New York aquarium here. Unfortunately it wasn't exactly a picturesque beach day. It was cool and cloudy and even started raining on us at the end but because of that the beach and boardwalk were pretty empty which was nice.
It felt good to be on a beach and it's still strange to me that this is such a short distance away from the city.
In addition to the beach Coney Island is home to a famous wooden boardwalk and amusement park.
Nathan's home of the famous Coney Island hot dog.
Of course Shelby had to try one
The only vegetarian approved item on the menu was cheese fries.They were good though :)
We ended our Coney Island adventure as every adventure should end...with a funnel cake.
It was a great day and we're looking forward to a return trip when the weather is a little nicer.
Until next time
