Following on from my original New York Diary post, today I want to tell you all about Coney Island!
So Coney Island is basically like a massive fairground at the seaside, and it’s also where the show Mr Robot was filmed (if you haven’t heard of it, you need to watch it – I binge watched it when it first came out!) It was Hayley’s idea to visit for the afternoon, and it was only a 45 min subway journey for us, so really not that far at all. It was one of my favourite afternoons of the trip!
When we arrived at Coney Island the first thing we decided to do was to stop for food and drink and recharge for a while – it was a really hot day so we sat in the shade, and I decided to go for the lobster roll – well we were at the seaside so it would be rude not to! And oh my gosh it was amazing! It was easily the best lobster I’ve ever had – ok so I’ve literally had it twice in my life but this really was superb!
We headed down the boardwalk and took a look around. There was food and drink, ice creams, music, rides and so much more. This was definitely my idea of a great day out!
Hayely and I decided we wanted to have a go on the Wonder Wheel – it looked like so much fun! There was an option of either spinning cars (no thank you) or static ones. We took the safe option and used it as a great opportunity to take some photos!
Then, look what we spotted when we came off the Wonder Wheel! I was beyond excited! And if you don’t know what a Zoltar Machine is – you really need to google it!
Ahh, I got my fortune!! Here’s what it said…[otw_shortcode_quote border=”bordered” border_style=”bordered” background_pattern=”otw-pattern-1″ background_color=”#ff7de3″]Are you tired, are you weary? Does life feel drab and dreary? Despair not of this my friend, I see happiness around the bend. Say farewell to those blues you have been nursing. Get in the habit of looking on the brighter side of life. You have a temperamental nature. You lose your temper easily, but regret it just as fast. You have a brilliant mind and enjoy reading and the fine arts. Your friends appreciate your intelligence and like to come to you with their problems. You have a very sympathetic nature. A dark haired person who is trying to harm you will soon disappear from your life and you will be extremely happy.[/otw_shortcode_quote]
So clearly this is all true… 😀 I have been feeling a bit stressed and down recently, so let’s hops happiness is around the bend for me!
So basically we had a fantastic day out! Coney Island just had the most wonderful atmosphere about it – the sunshine, the music, the sea air – it’s definitely a special place. I’m hoping to go back there in the future when Freddy’s older for a family holiday 🙂
And I also have a couple more NYC posts coming up! Keep an eye out for my Sephora haul, and of course all the goss on Michael Buble and his fantastic new fragrance.
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
