coney and fourth with a touch of wet…

A rainy start to a day of celebrations. Still worth the trip out to Coney Island though at first it didn’t seem like it would be.  A fallen tree and work on the rails made for a crazy, super long, ride on the N train.

Luckily the rain wasn’t hard and the temperature was actually nice for a change.

Fun in the rain but still so much more to do to fill the day!  So the last two are from the train,  this time the Q, on the way out of Dodge.
