Too Much Sun!

Ouch! I totally got too much sun this weekend when I went to the beach. Do they make sunscreen that's waterproof? Because I had put on spf30, but it must have washed off when I went splashing in the ocean. My shoulders are now sore and a little tight and you can tell a got a little too much sun my face. Still it was a nice day at the beach which was not too crowded for a Saturday. I think that a lot of people are off on vacation other places.

My friend Lucia and I took the water taxi from the Wall Street pier which was a steal at $12.00 round trip. Not only did we get to see the waterfalls installation (which was not that impressive) but we got to see all of Brooklyn (God Brooklyn is one long borough). I love the water and it was really cool to stand on the top deck of the boat as we breezed on past Governor's Island and the Statue of Liberty.

After we got back to Manhattan, we stopped off at the Heartland Brewery for a drink because god forbid we should get back on the subway sober. While sipping our drinks, the drunk dude sitting next to me complimented me by saying that I was incredibly beautiful and a ray of sunshine.

Awww! Thanks drunk dude!
Seriously, at my age I take my compliments where I can get them.

Sunday, I met the lovely Leanna at the Met to see the J.M.W. Turner exhibit. Unfortunately we spent too much time yakking over coffee at the Met closed before we could see the entire exhibit, which just means that I will have to go back again to finish seeing it. Afterwards, we headed over to the Loeb Boathouse for wine in little plastic bottles and food. We discussed our plans for world domination and then went our seperate ways.

All in all, a pretty good weekend. Too bad its Monday!
