Summer is Over (So I Took Some Pictures to Make It Last Longer)
Yeah, it’s been a while since I’ve updated. Deal with it.
I’ve successfully survived my first summer living at the Jersey Shore. Though that’s not to say there weren’t a few close calls – like a hurricane, a tornado, a slight altercation with a bouncer, etc. That being said, I’d like to share a few pictures.
Let’s start with this one:
I was lucky enough to attend a bonfire party on the beach. That really was quite an experience. The only bad part? I was under the impression that a fire at the beach would attract Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon, but no such luck.
This next pic is a turtle I stumbled upon (not literally) while hiking at Allaire State Park. I also saw a snake that day. I would have taken a picture, but I chose to run away screaming like a little girl instead.
I don’t know what the object in the next two pictures is supposed to be, but I found it while walking on the beach one night. Is it a piece of art? Did some old pirate come and build it as a shelter during the hurricane? Is it Snooki’s secret lair? The possibilities are endless.
Finally, these next few pics are from a suite at Harrahs in Atlantic City that I had the privilege of staying in for a night. Any guesses as to how much money such opulence cost me? I’ll tell you after the pictures…
So, the price tag for this suite? A mere $15. It was a combination of being a loyal customer and making a reservation a couple of days after Hurricane Irene shut down all of the Atlantic City casinos. I guess so many people had to cancel their AC plans on account of the storm, they were just giving suites away.
And those were some of the highlights from my summer living in Belmar. There were a lot more, but these are the only ones I have pictures of. Or pictures that I’m comfortable posting here…
