Sitting down for 40+ hours a week makes me enjoy standing or walking or doing anything other than sit at a computer even more.
Last weekend we took a trip (after an opthomologist appointment so I had these sick shades on) to a local north shore beach. Kings Park, which is pretty popular for its abandoned psychiatric facility buildings that allows for some amazing Long Island views, is about a minute drive from the beach.
Gorgeous weather made for a nice two mile walk. If you're ever on the north shore, be sure to check out Kings Park Bluffs.
