It’s a Shore Thing

Anyone else inexplicably drawn to the ocean (or as we say in this part of the country, the shore)? Ever since I was a little kid, we’d spend about 2 weeks each summer at the Jersey shore (Ocean City). The memories are indelible. Surf fishing with my Dad, building sand castles, riding our bikes on the boardwalk, and rough and tumble body surfing filled our days. When my kids came along, we continued the tradition. By getting there on some weekends we can say we spend almost one month a year at the beach. The drive is 145 miles and takes about 3.5 hours. Just far enough away from home to make it feel special, but not so far that we feel as if we spend half our vacation getting there. Photos of the new place (2008) are here.
