Today was my first visit to the Jersey Shore, and I have to say, I liked it way more than I expected I would. It certainly doesn’t compare with Northern California beaches, but I guess it’s not all dirty boardwalks and loud beach-goers here. There was minimal traffic, nice sand, refreshing water, and great weather. Then a storm rolled in and we were all ushered off the beach.
Even though I applied sunscreen at least 5 times, I still managed to burn myself rather badly. I go to the Grand Canyon for 8 days and don’t burn once, I spend a few hours at the Jersey Shore and I’m unable to sit…. This week is going to be slow-going, but hopefully one of these dishes will help!
