Rockaway Beach

Rockaway Beach, Queens
By Haleigh In Non classé

It’s not hard, not far to reach. We can hitch a ride, To Rockaway Beach! ♫ It’s true! This place is only a subway ride away from home in Brooklyn, which makes it the favourite summer weekend spot of my sister. It may have been The Ramones that first immortalized Rockaway Beach in the song, but I’m doing it my own way in my photo diary here of this stop on my recent American tour. I never really associated going to New York City with going to the beach but my sister  was dying to share it with me. Our friend Mike has an adorable bungalow out there as well so the three of us made a day of it! Swimming, tanning, Rockaway Taco, and some down time at Mike’s cottage and cruising in his Jeep…just another perfect summer Saturday in this iconic American spot.

    Oh my favourite place to soak up the summer is back home in Mexico… a little town in Baja California where sailing is a must.

    Unfortunately it is finally far away from where home is now- London. Alas, your tacos reminded me a bit of home hehe 😉

    What an idyllic little spot! I’ve heard about this place but never been there myself. Loving every single one of your photos, I can really feel the relaxed vibe and those tacos looks so yummy!

      Actually it is Alexandre de Paris! I love their clips…they are beautiful, last forever, and are the only ones strong enough to hold a lot of hair!

    Gosh, I would never believe that it’s possible to swim next to NYC !! Your bathing suit seems to be so cute ! Gros bisous ma belle ! Tu sais que tu es vraiment super photogénique : c’est ce que je me dis à chaque fois que je vois tes photos !!

    These photos are absolutely perfect-East Coast summer at its very best! San Francisco doesn’t exactly provide dozens of days of sun, but on those rare sunny afternoons, a glass of wine in Golden Gate Park is absolutely irresistible!

    I love all of these! Living in Southern California, I practically lived at the beach growing up. These make me want to hop in the car and run to Malibu!

    xox,

    I love going to places like that! Kind of looks a bit like Southport, North Carolina. And your shoes are to die for.
