There is no getting around it. If you live in New Jersey, going down “the shore” is a way of life. Summer is the the best time to take in what New Jersey has to offer, since you can spend a day on the boardwalk eating pizza, enjoying the sun and pretending to be a kid again.
Last weekend, my husband and I took a trip to Point Pleasant, NJ to take advantage of the perfect spring day which called for playing some games, grab some food and just get out and enjoy walking the boards.
Although I love the scenery at the boardwalk, I never go on the rides. This swing is probably the prettiest one I’ve ever seen through all my boardwalk, county fair travels. I’m glad that Hurricane Sandy didn’t take this one out because to me, it represents everything I remember as a child going down the shore. Maybe one day, I’ll get the courage to actually go on it. The guy behind me probably shares my sentiments on riding it as well.
But on this day, all I really wanted to do was have a fun day at the shore and win some cheesy prizes from the crane machines. Since the weather was perfect, I threw on this cut-out dress from Charlotte Russe, and pulled out my gladiator sandals from last summer. I figured I wanted to wear something that matched my mood and excitement of being back by the beach again after a year full of snow. I’m crossing my fingers that there will be more happy, sunny days like this to come in New Jersey!
