Umbrellas and breakers

watercolor beach umbrellasIts beaches are among New York City’s finest assets in the summer season, and the past weekend included two days delightfully spent where the Atlantic meets the sand at Jacob Riis Park. I spied a couple of cormorants drifting on the water out beyond the crashing waves. They’re more commonly spotted lounging in the sun on the jetties of Coney, drying their wings or just sitting; black silhouettes on the black rocks.

In between was a day and evening of cycling around Brooklyn— to and around Bushwick, then to Williamsburg for dinner and finally a last stop in Prospect Heights before heading home. Not a fanatical number of miles but it was hot out, so it felt like a lot.
