Henry had previously been to Coney Island when we met Jacqui at the finish line of the Brooklyn Half-Marathon, but he didn’t have the chance to visit the amusement parks or play on the beach. Since his cousin Shannon had never been, we decided to pay a visit, making it Henry’s first actual time at a beach and in the ocean.
Just in case it was unclear where we went.

Henry was exited to mount a carousel horse.
I was there to spot him, but he was steady in the saddle.
