One crew had been up since the crack of dawn, so we spent some time resting this afternoon. Brownies were baked, hair was braided, naps were taken…
We rallied the troops and left the house around 5:45 for the subway station. After a crosstown ride, we arrived at Coney Island around seven. When we got there, the girls were super excited and hungry. To our very pleasant surprise it was a little chilly with the cloud cover and sprinkles, so just about everyone now owns a Coney Island jacket, lol.
I snuck down to the beach while we waited on our food to get a picture. The water looked a lot like Texas, brownish, and the beach was trashed from a busy Friday but the solid path all the way to the water was really nice.
The Cyclone–wooden coaster, Steeplechase, Soarin’ Eagle, Thunderbolt and this…
The Friday fireworks at the park were fun to watch from the rides as well.

One man I rode beside on Steeplechase asked me who we were there with. I told him that our GS troop had saved their cookie money for three years and come to New York. “Well, you made a good choice for a Friday night. Coney Island. There are so many options in this city but coming here is a great experience.”
He was right. –Amie
