Hello from Los Angeles, where I'll be spending the next 5 days taking in the sunshine and ocean air while celebrating my sister's birthday! I plan to have my toes in the sand & surf the majority of my time here, so I thought it only appropriate to post some snaps from a day I spent at the Rockaways, one of the easiest beaches to access from NYC.
It's all too easy to forget that New York is actually a seaside city, surrounded by water and even a pretty shoreline if you take the time to explore. But being a California girl at heart, you can bet that's something I never forget, and during summer I do my best to hit up the beach as much as possible. Plus, you can take the subway right there: from my notorious Marcy Stop just hop on the J to Jamaica, transfer to the A to far Rockaways then take a beach shuttle one stop to 90th Street, my favorite part of the beach. Here, surfers line the waters waiting for their next wave, while Rippers on the boardwalk serves up the best beach burgers and fries. And after a long day in the sun, there's no better place to hit than the Rockway Surf Club for a few cold beers and a fresh taco if you're willing to brave the line.
My point? Beach lyfe = the best lyfe. Just trying to get in all the time I can.
