Island Time


Happy Friday lovelies! It's been a long week and I'm so thrilled the weekend is finally here. This weekend is going to be amazing because just the other day we decided that we'd like preview the Fire Island beach house that we are planning on renting in August. So this afternoon we're hoping on a ferry and heading on over to the island for two nights. I absolutely adore it there. There are no cars, just beautiful quaint beach houses and some restaurants and bars. It's a perfect getaway and the great thing is that it's not to too far from home.

Hope you all had a wonderful week and that you get to have a splendid weekend. Any fun plans?

OMGGG seriously Dawn, that last photo is what i dream of every night! For some reason that path to the beach represents the magic of my childhood (we used to go to old orchard beach every summer!) and because the beach is not very accessible where i am, it's just so special to see this passage that leads to the ocean! When i am there in person i cherish the moment that i walk through it and take mental photos of it (as well as real ones lol). You are soooo incredibly lucky to be renting a house in fire island! I was there in 2008 and fell completely in love with it for the exact same reasons that you state in this post. Have an AMAZING time this weekend, i'll surely be thinking of you while i'm stuck in the sweltering city heat :) xxxx

Cara said...

I've ALWAYS wanted to go there! But we live at the jersey shore, so it is silly not to just walk outside to the beach... Take pictures!

We're flying out to Italy tonight, which I'm sure I'll absolutely enjoy once the 8 hour-long flight with a restless 3 year-old AND while pregnant is over!... See you in two weeks lovely!

Now this is very tricky, it's mean of you to seduce me with such a perfect picture of a weekend getaway :p Hahahaha. I've always been in love with secluded beaches, but haven't really got the time to flee this hectic life.

But this coming weekend is going to be quite amazing though. My friend's hosting a house-warming little party. Looking forward to lots of fun! Have a marvelous weekend yourself, Dawn. You are lovely!

Oh, this will be giving you such a lovely taste of things to come. I think for me it's going to be 'le football' (or the soccer world cup, as you probably call it in the US). Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Dawn! xoxo
