Jones Beach

Yesterday I went to the beach as it was simply too hot to stay in the city. How lucky am I to be living in a city where you move from metropolitan life to beach life in more or less an hour….

I går tok jeg turen til stranden ettersom det var rett og slett for varmt å henge rundt i byen. Jeg er så heldig som bor i en by der du kommer deg fra storbylivet til strandlivet på rundt en time….

We opted for Jones Beach and it turned out to be a good choice. I´ve been to Coney Island and Rockaway Beach, and Jones Beach is just so much better. It was pretty crowded as it was the perfect day for the beach, but I can only imagine how nice it must be to go there on a weekday when there are hardly people.

Det er mange muligheter for den som vil kose seg ved sjøen, men de sier at jo lenger øst du kommer jo renere er vannet og jo hvitere er sanden. Vi satset på Jones Beach, og det viste seg å være et godt valg. Jeg har vært på Coney Island og Rockaway Beach, men Jones Beach er bare så mye bedre. Det var ganske overfylt der ettersom det var den perfekte dagen for stranden, men jeg kan bare forestille meg hvor fint det må være å gå dit på en ukedag når det knapt er folk der.

thumb_IMG_6494_1024_FotorWe stayed for hours, and I think that all of us got a bit of a sunburn hehe.

Vi var der i mange timer, og jeg tror at vi alle ble littegranne solbrent hehe.
