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 People of the Beach – It’s My Job

One of my favorite things about the beach is the people watching.  Some are funny, some make me shake my head and others are just interesting.

These are the people who work the beach.  Ice Cream girl doesn’t get the credit she deserves.  She pushes this cart of tasty treats back and forth across the beach every day.  Hot or drizzling she’s there to furnish us all with tasty treats.  I salute you Ice Cream Girl!

These are the people who rescue us in rip tides.  They save us from cut feet from broken shells and they watch over us while we swim in dolphin infested waters.  It’s not an easy job or one that people appreciate until, well, until you are drowning.  Here is a shout out to all of the Wildwood Crest’s version of Baywatch!  You do it CJ and Mitch Buchananish Lifeguards!

Here is to the guy who never gets and credit at all.  This kid provides your rented equipment so you don’t have to schlep it to the beach.  Umbrellas, Chairs and the like are all provided by this guy.  Also, he collects them all from the beach before his shift is over at 5pm.

You do it Umbrella Patrol guy!  Thanks for the shade!

I jest, but to be honest these folks provide to all the tourist the comforts of the beach.  They provide food, equipment and most importantly…peace of mind knowing they are looking out for us up there on the stand!  Thank you all!

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 🙂
