It’s been a week since our return from St. John, and I finally got around to sorting through 100’s of photos of that amazingly blue Caribbean water. It was our first trip to the Caribbean and our first beach vacation in years.

Coming home from vacation is HARD. It takes me just as long to settle back in as I spend on vacation. 1 to 1 ratio, at least. Vacation posts are always the most difficult too- sorting through countless photos, and trying to summarize everything you packed into a few days.

The first half of our New York trip was spent on (in?) Long Island for the wedding that motivated the trip. Out of all my trips to NYC, this was my first time spending a day at the beach and it was so hard to believe we were only an hour from the biggest city in the country. It was only about 80º, which was perfect for lying on the beach, yet the water was still warm enough to swim.






Long Island beach day

The water stayed shallow pretty far out so we waded around most of the afternoon. We literally stumbled on this giant crab and some of his buddies which definitely made me watch where I was walking the rest of the way back. We also saw a bunch of ladies tanning with their chairs facing the parking lot. I guess if you live near the beach you don’t appreciate as much? Not much of a view…

You guys, I realllly want to live near the beach! If you do- please go every day and take advantage of it! This Arizona girl is jealous :)
