It's been so cool and rainy that we haven't been able to use the beach tags yet this year.
Beach tags ......... never heard of them when I lived in Florida.
You wanted to go to the beach? You went.
Here in south Jersey, you have to buy a beach tag for each town if you want to use their beach.
We really like Ventnor City and Margate.
Luckily they share tags.
One tag = access to two beaches!
This morning Colleen and I got up early and went to the beach.
Water temp was 68 degrees.
It was a bit chilly when I first got my feet wet, but they acclimated pretty quickly.
No one was swimming.
There were 2 surfers out trying to catch a wave.
The beach patrols were out practicing further out.
Not many shells either -- maybe we came at high tide.
We parked at our favorite little lot and crossed in to the beach (yes you have to pay to park -- this is Jersey, what more do you expect???).
We walked down to the pier and back (a little over a mile) -- barefoot on the beach in the water, etc.
Yes, my knee is screaming.
but it was good for it.
Came home, did the grocery store thing.
Put a small roast in the crock pot.
Lazy for a bit.
Out to Micheals for me to get the hanging thingie for my BFAC.
OMG the roast is sooooo good.
Now I am waiting while an experiment with blackberries plays out -- my first attempt at some kind of sauce type stuff.
Then to the living toom - beads and True Blood.
I think I am spoiled now by Summer.
I do NOT want to go to work tomorrow.
