I live on Staten Island and enjoy walking, quite awhile ago I discovered the Boardwalk. I most enjoy walking late in the afternoon from the Midland Beach entrance to the very end at Souoth Beach and back again. This walk takes me past the Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier, the Turtle Fountain, South Beach Grill and the chance to say hello to the many different kinds of people who walk there. It is a greatand always different experience each time. I especially like to stop at the signs along the way that tellme where I am and a little of the history, my favorite being the signboard that talks about the bungalows of SI. As a person who grew up in the bungalows of Rockaway Beach I really appreciate that little bit of history. The view of the Verrazano Bridge as I walk towards South Beach is always spectacular and changes as the sun begins to go down,as I come back the ocean is in my line of vision and its ever changing moods give me a feeling of calm and inner peace. Sometimes I stop outside of the South Finn Grill and listen to the music, sometimes I stop at the boardwalk cafe for some Uncle Louie G's ices, sometimes there is a wedding on the beach, or I watch the people kayaking. It is always different and the 2 1/2 mile walk each way is the perfect way to keep in shape. If you live on SI and don't walkthe boardwalk you don't know what you are missing.
