A few weeks ago we decided to head to Coney Island whilst the weather was still warm enough to enjoy the beach. Given we have a baby and toddler we didn’t do the ‘typical’ things you’d expect like ride all the rides at Luna Park. I have to say though, even if we didn’t have Tate or Knox I still wouldn’t. Amusement Park rides make me sick!
The beach is very popular from what we could tell. If memory serves, the temperature was not very warm, possibly in the late 20s (Celsius). Despite what we Australians would consider too cool for swimming there were heaps of people on the sand and in the water!
Tate had a lot of fun splashing in the water despite it being freezing and got soaked. He had to attempt to dry off at a funky playground that was on the sand.
After a yummy pizza lunch we headed over to the aquarium. The aquarium was devastated by the affects of Hurricane Sandy so are currently trying to rebuild. Due to this, less exhibits were available to view but we still had lots of fun watching the sea lion show and checking out all the sea life that was available for viewing.
And here are some of the interesting fish we saw:
