And if you look sharply here you’ll see a few young seagulls standing.

Spring Clicks With the 100s At Coney… Ceegee Just Clicks
By Ceegee
I left the city Sunday morning at around 11:30 a.m. The F train was jammed with straphangers.
When I finally reached Coney their was very little traffic… And a fair number of cops… I missed the christening of the Cyclone, and caught the end of a protest, (to paraphrase: “Your Amusement Isn’t Amusing!”)… On the boardwalk I didn’t see the usual sun bathers. There was almost no one on the beach, just a few photographers and beachcombers, and no one was wearing bathing suits… Many of the concessions were closed.
The salt air made me hungry. So I baked a Dutch Apple Cake (see below) and drank a few cups of green tea. If I feel all right I’ll go to work tomorrow.
It took me over an hour to ride the subway back to the city. The connection from the uptown F to the uptown 6 is now possible and amazing. It was the first day that the Cyclone and Wonder Wheel, etc. were open for the season and for the first time since super storm Sandy…
I wonder what will happen in the summertime.
