A Post in Pictures.

Hi everyone,

Where is the summer going?  I cannot believe it is mid August already.  Good Lord, it went quickly, right?  Oh well.  I'm just going to try to enjoy what's left of the warmth and sunshine.  Colder temperatures will be here before you know it.  Ick.

A couple of weeks ago, Sarah, one of my favorite ex pat bloggers ever, contacted us East Coast peeps saying she & her husband would be flying out to NY to celebrate their wedding anniversary, and she'd love to see us.  The plan was for a bunch of us to meet at Coney Island and catch up.

My friend Steve said he'd never been (I confess I hadn't been to Coney Island either) and he asked if he could crash on my couch last weekend.  So he came up, and a bunch of us got together in Brooklyn and had a blast!

Here are some scenes from last weekend.


Margo, me & Steve on the F train.


With Sarah.  Don't let her British accent fool ya - she's got quite a tawdry sense of humor!


I love Margo.  It was great seeing her again. :-)


Tracy ventured out from NJ to celebrate her birthday and see all of us!


So the Khaleesi and the Hand of the King walk into a dive bar in Brooklyn and.....

It was so much fun, it was such a great weekend, and I was sad to see it end.

Next weekend, I'm in Boston visiting friends, and I can't wait!  I'm also going to drop in to the local CrossFit box while I'm there in an attempt to keep up with the fitness. Really trying to be consistent with it.

Have a great weekend!
