Baggy Spandex

my name is eby and i live in nyc. i am a thinker and a doer.

The beaches on the Gulf of Mexico are so beautiful. They are definitely the best beaches in Florida, something that the beaches on the Atlantic have nothing on. St. George Island, Summer 2014. 

It turns out the sea turtle we saw was caught in this fisherman’s line. It’s flipper had the line wrapped around it, so Gabby helped him get it free.

We saw this sea turtle pop up near us in the water.

Just like the old days, driving to St. George Island to hang at the beach for the day with good friends…

Flying over the ocean and jumping in the water far from the shore were all so fun. Florida is chill sometimes…

Hold the throttle down.

Racing and junk.

We doubled up on jet skis, so I shared one with Ben. It was so fun booking it as fast as possible, trying to fly off waves/wakes and going as far as possible.

During my last trip to Florida, we went to St. George Island and rented jet skis for a while, getting buck in the water. I brought an old expired underwater disposable camera to shoot some photos. The crew, via the photo on the bottom (l to r): Gabby, me, Orly, Shane, Katie, Ben, Steve, Clare.

Macy’s Fireworks Show. NYC, 2014.

The view before the fireworks and the light of all the cellphones taking pictures of/filming the fireworks.

So much boat traffic to see the fireworks. I’ve never see so many boats in the East River.
