New Rochelle, New York

Since Nico and I met, we’ve been trying to make up for the 22 years we’ve lost.

Yesterday, I drove to his little beach town in New York. After meeting a few more members of the family, Nico helped me with my jeep, and then we headed to the beach just a few blocks away. We packed a cooler of Lime White Claws, my camera and took the kayaks out on the water.

After a few hours on the Long Island Sound, we headed to a lake in Wayne, New Jersey, where I met MORE cousins. We played flip cup, beer pong, and enjoyed a bonfire while the sun set. Looking forward to many more nights like these.

‘Twas a perfect day.
