For Labor Day weekend, Jeremy and I wanted to fill it up with little mini-day trips throughout the New York City area. On Saturday we made our way to North Jersey to spend the day lounging by the lakeside on our friend's boat. The next day found us barbecuing with Jeremy's family, and then on Monday we finally decided to check out Governor's Island, which has been on my list for years. The best part about visiting Governor's Island is that it's only accessible by ferry, so we got to indulge ourselves in an hour-long adventure along the East River. I'm all about that boat life, so I was grinning ear-to-ear just feeling that river breeze. 

When we docked on Governor's Island, after grabbing some quick hot dogs, we jumped on a pair of Citibikes and started to explore the island. Back in the day, it used to be a United States Army post and then, for a shorter period of time, served as a major United States Coast Guard installation. Now the majority of the island is a public park, part of the borough of Manhattan, and it's covered with art installations and bike riders. Couldn't think of a better way just to enjoy the beautiful weather we've been having lately and taking it easy before I kicked off my week of funemployment (which is going great, let me tell you). 


  1. Girl you sure do look good in a boat! Always looking effortlessly beautiful!


  2. Aw that sounds so lovely! I was going to say, that I have also been to Governor's Island before for Gov Ball, but I realized that the location of the festival moved to Randall's Island a while ago....

  3. Isn't Governor's Island so cute? I went for the first time last summer and just loved it.
