2017 Summer Vacation – The People of the Beach

Vacations are a time for people to relax.  A time to share each others lives and sometimes it’s a time to just be still.  Here are some of those moments.

I give you The People of the Crest Beach.

I can’t help it…I love it in Wildwood Crest.  I can’t wait until next year to see some of these same faces and maybe some new ones.

Until then…I will be dreaming of seeing this sign as I enter my Happy Place away from home.

2017 Summer Vacation – The Beach

This year the we were able to go to the Beach almost every day.  We missed Monday because we were “Eclipsing”, lol.

We had one windy day.  Some families made a vow to not take down their umbrella, lol.

We had a lot of dolphin sightings.  One day while we were swimming and jumping waves the dolphins were doing the same.  Jumping high in the air over the waves.  It was an amazing thing to watch.  Of course, I didn’t have my camera on me.  The best I got all week of these wonderful creatures are these:

They kind of look like sharks, lol.

I took over a thousand pictures during the course of this vacation.  I really think I could have taking a thousand more.

I even got to do some of this on the beach…

The Beach isn’t only for the daytime.  Friday nights they have a fireworks display that can be seen anywhere on the beach.

The Beach is Magical…especially at night 🙂

Yes I’m weird but I’m really okay with it.  More importantly my wife is okay with it, lol.

2017 Summer Vacation – A Solar Eclipse and a Rainbow

Like most of our Vacations through out of the years there have been anomalies that have happened.  We’ve gone through 2 Hurricanes (Irene/Hermine), an Earthquake and now a Solar Eclipse.

Friends of ours had the “viewers” to watch the eclipse.  He took one picture thru the lens of the viewer.  The result was super exciting!  The other picture was me just pointing my camera at the sky while not looking directly at the sun, lol.  I actually caught something!

Ollie and I were ready for the big event!

The Eclipse was on Monday.  On Wednesday, we had a brief shower that produced a beautiful Rainbow.  I considered these events to be just an added bonus!  What is great is this time it was a major disaster happening, lol.  Yay for Rainbows…and unicorns, of course.

FOS Project: Yesterday’s

While on Vacation we hit Ocean City, NJ’s Yesterday’s for some lunch.  They had FOS on the menu…of course I got it.

I’ve said this before, but when a restaurant has Prime Rib on the menu the French Onion Soup is going to be amazing! (Hamburger is almost always a sure bet that it ground left over prime rib too).

This FOS has moved to the #1 spot in my book.  It was an awesome offering.  Not to salty, very beefy, very oniony and the cheese was a Provolone/Muenster combo giving it a great texture and taste.

The bread wasn’t took large as to soak up all of that tasty broth.  I could have eaten and entire pot of this French Onion Soup.  If you are in Ocean City, NJ stop by Yesterday’s for lunch or dinner.  Their food is most flavorable and delicious!

A Movie Under The Stars

Last night I crossed off one of our summer bucket list items, outdoor Movie night.

Our Community hosts free outdoor movies at various locations around town.  Local businesses sponsor these movie nights.  Last night it was hosted at Historical Hope Lodge.  A beautiful location for sure!  We waited for dark to get the movie going and it was really cool with the Mansion sitting in the background.  Popcorn and movie…how can you go wrong.

Dark came quickly now that we are racing toward Autumn.  And the 100+ folks who gathered on the lawn applauded the start and finish of our movie.

Raiders of the Lost Ark is/was a classic.  All though Amy Farrah Fowler messed with our minds stating that regardless of what Indiana Jones did the end would have been the same and he didn’t even need to be there I still loved this picture!  Getting to watch it with my love made it even more fun!

I feel Wicked…

We went to see Wicked last night and it was phenomenal!!!

This is my third time seeing this wonderful Musical. Our seats were so close to the stage.  The best seat I’ve ever had for anything, lol!

I really have to thank my wife for having a Birthday and wanting tickets to see this show!  Thank you love!
