We have been lucky enough to enjoy some special weekends at Culver Lake with the extended Turco clan – the family of our pal Louie, owner of our local Gowanus watering hole, Canal bar. (Or “Louis,” as his family calls him.) I couldn’t help myself, I had to go a bit over on this one. Too much to choose from. I wish my camera work lived up to the quality of the soundtrack.
The weather has been so beautiful in New York this week, I convinced my friend to drive out to the beach for a quick swim in the ocean. Neponsit is a beach community in the Rockaways that is less crowded than the neighboring boardwalk beaches. The name means “the place between waters” – with the waters being the Atlantic Ocean and Jamaica Bay.
Last weekend we headed to Rye Brook, NY to see our friend David play the Prince in the LawnChair Theatre’s production of Romeo & Juliet. I had to go a bit over one-minute to pay due to the bard and his interpreters. But still under 2. Enjoy…we did!
Got to the beach for a late afternoon visit this weekend. Yes, I brought the latest draft of my play to read. No, I didn’t read it. But I made you this.
As much as I like Gowanus, sometimes I need to get away. Feeling a bit stuck this summer, so I have to find creative ways to get some vacation-state-of-mind. After an appointment in downtown Manhattan, I stepped outside and noticed: 1) It was a beautiful day and 2) I was right near the Staten Island Ferry (which is free). Just the act of going for the ride brightened my day. Sea air! Wind in the hair! A busker! Wildlife! So I made this one-minute vacation for you.
