14th - 17th Days in the Rockaways: Good Ol' Routine

14th - 17th Days in the Rockaways: Good Ol' Routine

I've been settling in to life in the Rockaways, which means that the better part of the last week was spent returning to places from my first two weeks out here. Last Thursday night, Edgemere Farm had another farm dinner, this one including karaoke post vegetables:

I returned to the beach to continue practicing my paddling technique and try to stand up on a surf board. A rainy day led me indoors to yoga, led by the same people who do the weekly beach yoga classes. Another run on the boardwalk made one thing very clear: hang out on the boardwalk during the week - trying to run there on the weekend means more time dodging people than actually running.

In conclusion, I'm settling into my new lifestyle here and seriously considering staying on this side of town through the winter.
