wandering around new york

You know how those days you didn’t make any plans for end up being the best days? That happened to me on Friday night. I met up with my friends Kevin and Stef; we had no real plans or commitments so we just started wandering around Brooklyn. That freedom allowed us to run & jump through the sand in a volleyball court. And glimpse the sunset from a promenade we didn’t even know existed. We went to two new bars, and have no idea how to get back to them. While we were out wandering we made up some rules for wandering, and decided that we should wander more often, and share the art of wandering with our friends.
