A Day at the Chip


 We arrived early at the Chip so we could take in all the sites and festivities. The first place we headed towards was the upper deck where I could get a cold beer and a view of the entire grounds. Knowing that I would be there all day and into the evening to see Kid Rock, I did bring in a little J.D. of my own in my boot flask. Then we just relaxed and met people from all over. A great way to  spend the day people watching and just chilling.

New York - Staten Island, Verrazano Bridge and FDR boardwalk

During one of our visits to NYC, we were surprised to find this gem in Staten Island.  These are pictures of the South Beach and FDR Boardwalk.  The boardwalk is 2 1/2 miles long and is the fourth largest in the world.  The beach is on the Atlantic Ocean and fairly large and very clean.  Along the boardwalk, people can take a nice stroll, ride bikes and fish.  There are some street entertainers as well.  In the background, you can see the Verrazano Bridge which connects Staten Island and Brooklyn.  The bridge is the longest suspension bridge in America.  This is also the location of one of the scenes from the Kate Hudson movie "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days."  It is a beautiful, peaceful location and definitely worth checking out.
