September Beach Trip

A beach vacation in September....that is a treat! Christy, Zoe and I had a mini vacation this past week end with 3 other ladies and 2 teens and a 4 month old baby boy. We stayed in the 2 bedroom condo, at Wildwood Crest NJ, owed by Christy's brother. The weather was nice enough to put my toes in the sand. That made me a very happy lady!

We arrived in time for dinner Friday evening and a walk on the boardwalk in Wildwood. It was a beautiful evening.

Christy and Zoe ham it up with Amber, Christy's good friend.
Amber organized the trip.


Oh Zoe, you silly girl!

Saturday was a warm day at the beach but oh so windy!
The sand blew into and onto everything!!

This is the best place on earth for me =)


Looks like fun!

Our condo  is in the second building from the left



After enough of hours on the beach, we went back to the condo.
Some swam in the very warm pool.
Some showered and cleaned up all the sand in our hair, our ears, our toes, our clothes....

Christy grilled sausages and hot dogs for our late lunch/early dinner
while I fried up some onions and peppers.
I brought chocolate cupcakes and homemade applesauce from my freezer for the meal.

We drove north to Ocean City beach for the evening. It was very windy all evening too.
 Christy and I enjoyed a wonderful cup of coffee from our favorite coffee place on the boardwalk.
Later we all shared a very good cheese pizza before heading back to the condo.

Not sure where Amber and Zoe were!

We had a great time talking and laughing till it was way too late. What fun!!

Zoe wanted to help make breakfast on Sunday morning.

 Zoe stirs the eggs!

Christy did made to order eggs for everyone.
My omelet was wonderful!!

And then it was time to head home again.
We had to make one last walk out to the beach first.
It was not as warm as the day before but wasn't windy at all.
A nice day makes leaving soooo much harder!

Our trip home was good,
even though we added about an hour to our drive time
 because of stop and go traffic not far into our drive.
I needed a bathroom during that time.
I held it as long as I could....then Christy saw a restaurant.
She let me out at the door.
I read a sign on the door...
Restrooms for paying customers only.
OH NO!!

I hesitated for a split second but went inside.
The lady at the desk said it will be a few min...
I told her I'm sorry but I really was hoping to use their restroom....I said we were in traffic
for a long time and this was the first place we came to....
she said to go on back...whew!!

I thanked her again on my way out and told her
 that I hoped I would be able to stop
 to eat my next time through.
I really meant it....the picture of a pumpkin pie I saw looked very good =)

We arrived home around 6:00.

Blessed to have been able to go,
so good to be back home again!

I'm glad you had one last stop at the beach, and so glad that you were able to use that restroom when you so needed it!
