Postcards tagged: Everybody's Happy
SHELTER ISLAND, New York – Farmers markets, family meals, art shows, dancing, and laying horizontal by the pool.
It's the resistance to change that makes me feel at home, and I take comfort in knowing that when I return, things will be the same.
SAVERDUN, France – Everyone knew everyone. When the president made his toast, it ended in a nearly-naked conga line followed by a brass band that serenaded each lady in turn. (Ah, the French.)
NANTUCKET – College kids head to Nobadeer and families with young ones prefer Children's Beach. No matter your mood, there's a place to lay your beach blanket.
AUSTIN, Texas – The award for Best Class goes to ABS-olutely Paddle Board, combining boarding with core workouts. Due to a complete lack of coordination, I didn't brave it, but it sounds fun.
SYDNEY – Although harmless, the garden's resident fruit bats made their presence known throughout the movie by occasionally flying in front of the screen or letting out a shrill squeal.
ROCKAWAY, New York – A post-Sandy look at Rockaway Beach, New York City's up-and-coming (or totally retro) urban beach.
ISTANBUL – On a boat ride on the Bosphorous, we passed old and new Istanbul, enormous bridges, the summer houses of kings, and outdoor discos.
