Coney Island Mermaid Parade

Let me preface by saying I was dreading going to the Coney Island Mermaid parade. It had been a tough week at work and new bed at home seemed very inviting. I agreed to go only because my boyfriend's family was in town. It actually ended up being so much fun. Once we were able to get away from the crowd's we grabbed a few margaritas, Nathan's hotdogs and danced until dusk. It really just goes to show that when you set your expectations low, a great day is in store.
