summer

A visit to the Gulf in Galveston, Texas...

I've been to both east and west coasts numerous times and now finally got to experience the Texas gulf coast. I visited the gulf towns of Galveston & Kemah, where there happens to be some pretty landscape, waves, and a dedicated beach scene. Not really my beach scene, but one nonetheless. Imagine cowboys + the beach. Weird. I was surprised to find many surfers out in none to favorable conditions, but I guess you have to take what you can get. Any day at the beach is better than not, right?

Fire Island...

Summer is finally here and I was lucky enough to spend a recent weekend on Fire Island. The island is a weird and cool carless beach bum place filled with sand galore and enough nightlife to keep anyone hungover a day or two. I spent most of the time burning in the sun exploring the islands long and skinny shoreline by bicycle, which lead me to visit several of the towns, a sunken forest, the iconic lighthouse, and hoards of NYC beach bums.
