Adventures with Travey

On this cold December about a summer flashback?

When I was prepping for my Spain trip, I woke up one Saturday and walked from my place to the South Street Seaport (I went the long way around Battery Park, so I think it was a good four-mile warmup). Travis met me at the water, and we rode the free Ikea Ferry to Red Hook for lunch and urban exploring. We sampled what is supposedly "the best" key lime pie at Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies. Then we pretended we were at the beach and feasted at Brooklyn Crab, where Travis channeled his hometown roots to show me how to eat crabs like a Maryland native.

Reflecting on this is a bit bittersweet, as you may know Red Hook sustained a lot of damage in Hurricane Sandy. I just looked at the website for Steve's pies, and they are back in business after a rough couple of weeks, with more repairs to come. The crab shack looks over a huge Fairway supermarket that I believe was completely flooded, with all of the inventory discarded.

Here's hoping Red Hook is returning to normal and sunnier days like this one last August are in store again...

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I'm assuming having a blog like
yours would cost a pretty penny? I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
