There's such a calming feeling when you spend the whole day car free, computer free, and stress free. Yesterday, my friend Sena had her incredibly early birthday spent on Centre Island. When I say incredibly early, I mean two-months-early-because-her-real-birthday-is-in-August kind of early :) Have you guys ever tried tandem biking? It's basically a two seater bike that two people have to pedal in sync in order to properly maneuver. Yesterday I did it for the first time and it was such a thrilling experience. Thrilling in a way that trying to pedal in sync with your friend is such a weird thing, but once you get the hang of it, there's no stopping the two of you from speeding down the quiet streets and taking in the beautiful refreshing view of your green surroundings. So I'd say, tandem biking is a must on your summer to-do list.
My partner for tandem biking was my friend Lindsay. Finger credz to her! As you can see, our bike's bell seems to be missing a heart? Now it's just "I MY BIKE". But good luck saying that ten times fast.
After tandem biking, we ate lunch and then hit the beach! Ah yes, the beach. Aside from the cherry tomato face I got afterwards, it was so nice to lay in the sun and feel the warm sand run through your feet as you wiggle your toes through. It's days spent like this that make me envy those who live by the beach. Someday I plan on visiting Santa Monica Pier. I mean, aside from the fact that I'm pretty sure Hanna Montana (one of the best Disney shows ever) filmed there, it would be a thrilling experience to walk along it and slowly watch the sun as it sets. For now, I'll settle with the picture of Lindsay and I reenacting the Titanic on the Centre Island Pier.
