We’re currently at the beach! We decided Liam needed to experience fireworks while sitting on the beach and if we say beach we can only mean one place my friends - Ocean City, NJ. We know he will be thrilled. For years my sister and her family came to the beach that week and I was always lucky and blessed to be able to join them - as long as I brought a case of Heineken I was welcome! Ocean City is a dry town - a stop at Circle Liquors in Somers Point is mandatory before crossing the bridge!
This is the Lifeguard stand on our stretch of beach. We’ve been staying on St. Charles Place for years! We love being doors from the sand and Browns Restaurant - the makers of the best donuts in the entire world!
This week is about reconnecting with family. Relishing hours on the beach, playing card games, enjoying beautiful beach views while eating a ton of Manco & Manco pizza, walking the boards, getting delicious chocolate treats from Shriver’s, enjoying rides at Gillan’s Wonderland, shopping for a new T-shirt or two from Ocean Treasures, seeing how many rounds of Mini Golf we can fit in, dinner at the Crab Trap in Somers Point and doing our best not to get sunburned while savoring every minute!
Nothing beats Gillian’s for funnel cake, Kohrs ice cream, the Tilt-A-Whirl, the Scrambler, Bumper Cars and more!
Happy 4th of July everyone! Enjoy this wonderful Holiday celebrating America’s Birthday!
Til next time - I hope the weather is wonderful wherever you are!
