life in and around NYC is insane

another this and that

Well, it's summertime, and that means fewer workouts at the gym and more long walks at the beach.   Nothing beats the smell of the sea on a hot summer afternoon, or seeing  the sun set over the ocean.

The community pool opens this weekend, and Drew got his pool pass the other day.  I've been making good use of the indoor pool at the Y, but I really prefer to swim outdoors.

Drew's annual 4th of July barbecue is in the planning stages.  It won't be on the 4th this year -- we have other plans.  Instead, we will party on the 2nd.

It seems a shame that Drew uses that beautiful grill only three or four times a summer, when he's hosting a party. I suggested that we stop eating out so often, and use the grill instead.  Burgers, steaks, chicken...yum...

And instead of going out for seafood...there's a local supermarket that sells "a clambake in a bucket"; it comes with a whole lobster, potatoes, corn and either clams, mussels, or a combination of the two.  If that doesn't spell "summer"...

I'm thinking I'd like to go back to the Bronx Zoo.  Drew has a membership with the New York Wildlife Conservation Society, and that includes access to the city's zoos (Bronx, Central Park, Flushing Meadow in Queens, Prospect Park in Brooklyn, and the Coney Island Aquarium).  The last time we went to the Bronx Zoo, it was a very soggy experience -- it rained on and off all day.

And Drew wants to head over to Coney Island for the aquarium.  I haven't been to an aquarium in awhile, should be fun.

I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and sky...

You should sit down and make a list of all the things you want to do this summer. Then you can schedule those that need scheduling and get it all in there.
