It's not a bad beach, actually. It was clean and it had a bath house and a snack bar, and overall wasn't too crowded. I didn't go in the water though-but other people didn't seem to mind it which leads me to believe that it's ok. Below you can see the view from the "boardwalk"-the Prudential Center.
As with any outing to the beach, I of course got a little burnt. I only stayed a few hours but since I can't reach my back, I didn't have any sunscreen on it, and...well, ouch. My face did get a little bit red too. The picture doesn't show how red it actually is, but rest assured, it's pink! I think that b/c I am without funds and without plans tomorrow, I might go back if the burn isn't bad. I have an umbrella and a chair, so I'll take that and some lunch and sit and read for a bit. If the burn still hurts though-I've got nothin'...and I'll be bored shitless.
So, cool! I live near a beach AND get to live in a cool city! What'd you do today??
