Despite the heat, I ventured to Coney Island. After travelling an hour and a half on the air conditioned Q train to the end of the end of the line, I found myself at the beach! How strange. My lovely friends and I, with Cindy Lou Who hair, enjoyed a Brooklyn Cyclones game. A dinosaur from the Dino Park (you can watch more about it here) threw out the first pitch. Yes. That happened. The Cyclone cheerleaders, commonly known as the Beach Bums, made me feel better about my life choices. And Relish won the hot dog race.
I was not brave enough to ride any of the rides. And I’m okay with that decision.
