Of course though the call of the Mermaids lured me in! I'm sure glad they did. It was a delightful day. The weather was no less than perfect.
We did have to go early though. Lee and I both had a race on Sunday so we didn't want to be totally wiped out for that.
Ruby's as usual was our first stop. We sat up "camp" out front on the boardwalk. We met a nice couple from the city and hung with them for several hours.
I was asked several times to have my picture made with people. Mainly because I have a huge Coney Island tattoo on my back. But sometimes people even asked for photos of the front of me! One of them even snuck a little kiss in on my cheek as the pic was made! That rascal!
This photo was actually taken out at Ruby's last year by a photographer from Brazil. I'm sad I lost her name. But that's my Coney Tattoo!
With my whole living simple life style that I'm trying I did not allow myself a new costume this year. I just went as a 1950s pin up gal, using stuff I just drug out of my closet.
This was taken at the Freak Bar in one of their Fun House Mirrors.
Lee even looks quite nautical for the occasion.
Just a hand full of the Parade watchers
It was a fantastic way to kick off the summer!
