But somehow, all perfect days include the beach. Today was one of those days, and the first officially unofficial beach day of the season for us. Must be summer! Warning: photo intensive post ahead.
This morning I charged the camera, Husband, Art Child and I threw towels and waters in the car, left our sleeping and completely-uninterested-in-all-things-beachy Nerd Child behind, and got on the highway.
I hadn’t been to Asbury Park since, well, a long, long time ago. The beach and water isn’t just cleaner than it used to be, it’s clean. And beautiful. One of my beach obsessions involves the critters that live in the sand. Funny how one roach in the hallway will send me on a three-day scrubbing and freak out spree, culminating in 50 Combat traps, but I’m fascinated by the creepy crawlies in and around the ocean.
We didn’t stay too long. First day out, why ruin it with sunburn? So we packed up and walked along the boardwalk for a bit.
Ok, even I’ll admit these grains of sand are getting mighty uncomfortable.
