My friend Kelly visited from Connecticut last weekend. Among our Saturday exploits were a round of mini golf at Bethpage Mini Golf, located within Batter Up, and a walk along the Jones Beach boardwalk.

First, the mini golf photos:mc73121001-smallermc73121002-smallermc73121003-smallermc73121004-smallermc73121008-smallermc73121006-smallermc73121007-smallermc73121010-smallermc73121011-smallermc73121012-smallermc73121013-smallermc73121014-smallermc73121015-smallermc73121016-smallermc73121017-smallermc73121018-smallermc73121019-smallermc73121020-2-smallermc73121021-smallermc73121022-smallermc73121023-smallermc73121024-smallermc73121025-smallermc73121026-smallermc73121027-smallermc73121028-smallermc73121029-smallermc73121030-smallermc73121031-smallermc73121032-smallermc73121033-smallermc73121034-smallermc73121035-smallermc73121036-smaller
Kelly kept score:bethpageminigolf-73121-1
Upon scanning the card when we got home, I noticed that there was a five-stroke limit, rendering the score incorrect.

Here is the corrected scorecard:bethpageminigolf-73121-correction-1

After about an hour at home, Kelly and I headed down to Jones Beach to walk the boardwalk.

We drove south on the Wantagh Parkway:

It was a fun afternoon, and weekend, for both of us.
