I never stop. I can't. Even at the beach, I can't just lay there enjoying the sun and surf. I have to be working on something, anything. Our last beach day, I made 80 save the dates for our wedding while surrounded by people relaxing,baking in the sun, slathered in coconut oil.
I was working at home on Saturday and late that night, Jeffrey took one look at me, saw my exhaustion and declared Sunday to be a mandatory day of fun. He told me all I needed to know was that I needed to wear comfortable sturdy shoes and sunblock.
Saturday morning, as NYC got smaller and smaller behind our convertible, I felt my tension disappearing. Jeff let me take over the music in the car so I blasted Rolling Stones, Nelly, Joss Stone and BNL all the way to our mystery destination.
And then we arrived... at Bear Mountain. Beautiful, and exactly what I needed.
Jeff packed a backpack full of drinks and snacks and we ate lunch at 1915 an organic restaurant located in the park and has awesome pulled pork sliders!
Bear Mountain State Park is a perfect day trip from NYC. It's gorgeous and offers so much to do. Hiking, paddle boat rentals, a zoo, a merry-go-round, an enormous bright blue swimming pool, and amazing views in every direction. Cell reception is spotty throughout the park, which makes it even better for someone like me who is a slave to their email.
My fiance is the best and the day was a blast but I have to get back to work now.
Work hard, play hard!
