We spent a couple of hours on the beach. Stacy worked on her tan and I worked on maintaining my pallor.
Then we went to the boardwalk so I could get a Nathan’s Famous hot dog.
What Wendy Wore
Hat: Purchased from Urban Outfitters for Lollapalooza (2011)
Sunglasses: Prada (2013)
T-shirt: From Tate Modern (2013)
Shorts: JC de Castelbajac (2013)
Wedge sneakers: Ash Shoes (2012)
After we got temporary tattoos (it’s tradition!), I contemplated the Wonder Wheel Ferris wheel. I’d really enjoyed it last time, but it seemed awfully tall and intimidating yesterday.
I decided I couldn’t live with myself if I chickened out, so I went on and wound up enjoying it immensely.
Here’s a little video of the view.
I rode the Wonder Wheel by myself because Stacy was too scared. She’s even scared of the kiddie rides! But she did win a blue dolphin by throwing darts at balloons.
The dolphin’s eyes reminded us of the brain-damaged horse on Family Guy.
We named the dolphin “Googly Eye Sugar Cube” in honor of the brain-damaged horse. (Family Guy fans, wouldn’t that name fit in perfectly with the Handi-Quacks?) Stacy gave me Googly Eye Sugar Cube as a present for FitzRoy (the permanent cat) and Portia (the visiting cat). They fled in terror when they saw it.
We hope to get back to Coney Island before the end of the summer instead of waiting for several years. It’s an ambitious plan, so don’t believe it till you see it!
UPDATED TO ADD: The highlight of the day was a conversation we had with a stranger on the subway on the way to the beach. I don’t know how I left it out of this post! Luckily, Stacy has it in her post here.
