Seaside Park, NJ

We played up and over in the waves and built a giant sand castle.  Almost clear pebbles and bits of spiral shells collected in our buckets and too much sand got in our swimsuits.   We rode the rollercoaster on the boardwalk--the one that almost hangs over the water--and were too terrified to scream.  We played skeeball, watched the claw drop the stuffed puppy...again...and licked soft serve ice cream.  Aunts and uncles and cousins and nieces and nephews and friends came to sit under umbrellas and watch clouds of laughing gulls swoop over pods of dolphins.  We left a lot of footprints in the sand that are already gone.

Tonight we are packing.  Tomorrow we leave.

Oh wow, you're down the shore! I used to love those swings. They always made me feel like I'd puke when they got going, but still I loved them.

And that photo is so very Springsteenish. It sounds like a whole lot of retro fun!
