Photopost: Coney Island


A beautiful early Spring day proved perfect for a visit to New York’s seaside playground, Coney Island.  We started with a visit to the New York Aquarium, which is still rebuilding after Hurricane Sandy, but still able to display and explain a variety of aquatic animals.  We enjoyed seeing Diego and Osborne in the sea lion show, particularly.  Then, Peter and I took a ride on the famous Wonder Wheel, where the cars not only go in a big circle, but slide around within the circle.  In between, we ate lunch on the Boardwalk at Nathan’s Famous Frankfurters.
