Beach house

This is the closest thing that we have to a beach house at the moment. Isn't it perfect?
Summer is in full force and I am taking the kids to the beach once a week. This is part of my embracing New York movement...a personal movement that I have to undertake every summer when all I want to do is be outside in nature, I have to find the nature and embrace it here where we live!
Our closest favorite beach is at Jacob Riis Park, only a half hour drive from our house in Brooklyn. It is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area, a national park that is right here in the coastline and bays surrounding New York City.
So far we are loving it, especially as this year the kids are a little older and better able to run in the waves!
