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.

We were definitely not the only ones watching from balconies…

They closed off the FDR drive for the 4th of July fireworks. The bottom photo shows a guy in skates pushing his kids carriage along, since it was a long way to walk from each FDR entrance.

While we didn’t participate in any of the official Go Skate Day activities in NYC and opted to go skate uptown instead, I did climb under the Manhattan Bridge and shoot some photos from above briefly. - Eby
