Playing with the Cards that are Dealt You

Living life to the fullest with whatever the day brings

Saturday, September 3, 2011 the Sea

I am finally posting the second half of our vacation. We headed to the beach at Sea Isle City in New Jersey. This is such a pleasant beach and very near the boardwalks of Atlantic City, Wildwood and Ocean City, N.J. Of course it was raining when we arrived again and the humidity was like the Amazon. This is what happens when you set up camp in the rain. At least my romper was fabulous.

The weather did clear up the next day and was beautiful the rest of the week.

We headed for the beach. I found my bathing suit on Ebay.

The pattern sort of reminded me of the Pennsylvania Deutsch tulip pattern

We've been coming to this beach since my kids were babies. This is the first time in 25 years it was just Larry and me. Sort of bitter sweet.

I love people and I love meeting all sorts of folks. This was Michelle. Her Camper was a work of art.

It was called the Gypsy Mermaid.

We also got to eat at one diner we've been wanting to for years but just never got around to it.

In case you can't see it on the sign, that and the back of the waitresses shirt says "Eat here...Get gas"

Police car in the parking lot means seriously good breakfast.

Bye bye to the beach and Summer is on it's way out. I will miss Summer but I think Autumn is my favorite time of year.

I don't remember where I got this frock, but I've had it for a long time. My Liz Claybourne bag is from
Goodwill for under $3.
