fun | fall at the beach

Rockaway Beach
recently, we visited rockaway beach in queens. we've never been there and officially it was closed for the season with no lifeguards. the surf is usually kind of rough and filled with rip tides, so we wouldn't swim there anyway without life preservers, which would be pretty sad at our age.

Rockaway Taco
we read about rockaway taco and wanted to check it out. the fish tacos were delicious and i love the murals. they sell surfboards, too.

Rockaway Beach
there's something about this photo of the couple that reminds me of a cialis commercial. you know, the one with the two bathtubs?

Rockaway Beach
there were surfers who mostly paddled & waited and lots of shells. i never saw so many shells and was happy to find some grey ones, which is my new favorite color.


scott turned into hervé villechaize from that old tv show fantasy island - the plane, the plane! the rockaways are very close to kennedy airport so the planes go over head quite a bit. i love this pink one and a beautiful fall day at the beach with no crowds. not bad at all.

xo, cindy

Aaah, Cindy! I'm loving watching your summer, chronicled by your beautiful photos. Good golly, look at the BLUE in that photo with the plane! What beautiful red&white thingies in the fish taco. So pretty! And I don't think I've ever seen so many shells on the beach. Great pickins!

Congratulations on finishing your work program! Sounds like a wonderful success!

The only time I enjoy the beach is off season. No crowds, the only sounds being birds and waves crashing.
