Saturday afternoon was spent at Coney Island, for my second year in a row of attending the Mermaid Parade with my friends from school. I went the low-key "mermaid-look" route this time around, donning aqua and green and leaving the wigs and costumes to my other friends. There was all sorts of good old fashioned Coney Island craziness and outlandish characters walking the streets, and some really unfortunate body parts were shown off (not pictured below).
side note: I have still never ridden the Cyclone!
