After three miserably frigid days in a row, it’s safe to say we are all craving the warmth of the sun’s rays. Whether that means counting down the days to summer (162 by the way), or scrambling to plan our next vacation (mine is Vegas in March!), people seem to be doing anything to get their mind off the cold. I personally have been looking back through old pictures from last summer, longing to be the tan skinned, flip-flop wearing chick in a maxi dress once again.
So to help us ALL cope, I am dedicating this Throwback Thursday post to one of my favorite day’s from last August. The perfect New York summer day.
It was a Sunday morning, and I was in the mood to be touristy. Peter and I decided to take the East River Ferry to meet our friend Nick in Dumbo for Smorgasburg (the most glorious foodie fest around), and then walk across the Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan.
(I could write a whole post on Smorgasburg alone, so I’ll leave that to a future day. For now, just daydream about summer with me for a second, and look through my pictures from that August day…)
The day was perfect …. most likely 85 degrees, sunny, and few, if any, clouds in the sky. We explored Brooklyn, gorged ourselves on food, took in some breathtaking views of Manhattan, and even got a little exercise on our walk back. It was everything a New York summer day should be: a little sun, a little food, a little culture, and a lotta skyline. Take me back…
Summer will be here before you know it, people. And this polar vortex can’t last forever. So stay strong. Stay warm! And indulge in a little daydreaming the get you through…
