Here is Frida on top of 50 Rockefeller Plaza.
June 21 we took a madcap trip to New York to see the Mermaid Parade on Coney Island.
The journey started with an overnight bus trip arriving at Penn Station 8 AM Saturday morning. After breakfast at the Tick Tock diner, we took a friend to see some sights-Rockefeller Plaza, Times Square, Staten Island Ferry before taking the long subway journey to Coney Island.
The parade is a magnificent affair; a bohemian fantasy of glitter and paint, sweat, blood and beers. And we could not have asked for a better day. It was sunny, 27˚C, blue skies and no humidity.
When the parade ended, the boardwalk became a heaving sea of humanity. We dove in for awhile and all too soon, it was time to go back to Manhattan to catch the bus home.
