Week Two of Our Beach Vacation


The sun sets on another Shore vacation.  Best one yet!  Great weather, so much family fun.


A time to grow closer, make memories... time with cousins and relatives that forge our family identity.


Days filled with hours in the water. Here we are ocean kayaking, wave jumping and boogie boarding.

My girl, about to turn 9.


My oldest about to head off to college.



My 2nd son, getting handsomer every day.


In two weeks we never made it to the boardwalk. Some nights we were on the beach till 8pm talking, playing games, enjoying the place all to ourselves.


It has a unique place in our hearts. So much happiness here.


Miss the sound of the surf, the gulls and the smell of the salt....and the rush of the water at my toes.


Until next time....

So beautiful! I am so glad your family has that wonderful place to bond and create memories.

We love spending time at the beach in the evenings...so peaceful and private!

Don't you just love how the ocean is always there for you? We spend wonderful days and nights there...then return to our regular lives and it becomes a distant memory...only to welcome us back anytime we choose to return.

I love how constant the ocean is, don't you! : )

Where do you go each year? I'm assuming it's on the East coast? Looks heavenly. I wonder if it's spendy. We dream of going to Florida some day with all the kiddos and vacationing there, but I'm open to going East.

I'd forgotten (I do every year) that our girls are so close in age, my 2nd daughter will be 9 on Sept 2.

Have fun making her cake!

Glorious. Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos... I am homesick for sand and salty air as I enjoy these!

Billie Joe, that was poetic....YES!

Jamie Joe , OCNJ isn't very spendy and really a wonderful beach and family town. I am now daydreaming of our daughters playing on the beach....

Nancy and Christine, thank you...I am missing their littleness and missing the beach, too!
