I'm back!!! As good as one's vacation feels, it is always nice to return home!
Unfortunately, our yellow lab, Libby, had a rough time without us, but that will wait for my next entry.
Wildwood Crest was wonderful. We had perfect weather, dry and sunny in the mid 80's. Rarely a cloud in the sky! See...
This was from the balcony of our hotel room! That pole and little bit of brown in the lower left corner is the very beginning of the world famous boardwalk.
The kids and Hubby and I did some kite flying on the beach which is always fun. All of us relaxed and swam in the pool every day. The water was heavenly, like the weather! We walked on the beach, but no one swam in the ocean. There was some jelly fish, and one was enough to put my kids off! LOL
Fuzzy went bicycling on the 7 mile boardwalk/beach bike path circuit every morning with my dad. Pumpkin Muffin rode in a go-kart for the first time and had a blast with her grandpa. She needed him to reach the pedals!
Hammer celebrated his birthday several times, once in Wildwood, once in Cape May and once in Atlantic City!
Here is a picture of the three of them after dinner in Atlantic City.
As you can see, they were in the sun getting tanner! We spent about 4 hours in Atlantic City at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino. There were parts of the floor where the kids could watch my mom and I play on the slot machines. They kids really loved that! My mom treated me to the gambling.... and I lost! Thanks anyhow, Mom! My mom won though, she is so lucky, and shared all her winnings with the kids.
The sunsets are always amazing down the shore. Every year we go to Sunset Beach in Cape May, this year was the first time we stayed for the famous sunset. It is the southern most tip of New Jersey, and the only place where you can see the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean, in NJ.
I met 3 women who were visiting from Seattle. They told me that the sunset rivaled the ones they saw in the Florida Keys on their last vacation!
This picture was from the car on the way....
This picture is at Sunset Beach at sunset.
Hubby, Fuzzy and Pumpkin are in the center of the shimmer...
I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do.
I will probably be sharing some more of the sunsets, since I took so many pictures!
