As a child my family went to LBI
pretty much every summer. I don't remember how long we ever stayed, but LBI
set my expectations for the beaches. As a child I was envious of my friends who got to go to Wildwood
, after all, Wildwood
had the boardwalk. LBI
was simply beaches, ocean, and bay, now that I am an adult, I appreciate the simplicity of waves, sand, and non-boardwalk tourist traps. My family continues to visit LBI
each summer, I do not. This year I decided to join the extended family for one week down the shore. I've returned tanned, but not ready to resume the stress of work (who ever is?).
Lighthouse (probably the first lighthouse I had ever seen)
An entrance to a section of the shore:I was happy to return to Boston, and my kitty was probably even happier. I did some knitting while at the shore, but not a lot. Most of my time was spent instead with my new toy, a Kindle.
I hope that everyone enjoys this long weekend!
