Friday shore arrival before 6 pm for all makes me happy. As does picky food for dinner + a solitary beach walk with just my boy dogs because Mae was in her glory with Sean and nanny here.
Saturday sunrise from the Music Pier + some time on the jetty watching the waves crash into it. My dogs had me up at 4:22 walking around town in my pajamas so I figured why NOT ride down there on my bike?
Mom & Rich got Brown's donuts and I ate 687 of them and regretted not one bite. Nor did I regret any of the bites I took from the Easter basket my mom made for me.
Mom, Debbie, and I strolled Asbury. I basically window shopped except for two bars of soap. Rich rode his bike and MFD and Swan went fishing.
We had a relaxing, drowsy afternoon picking at food, lounging with the dogs, reading magazines, snoozing, and watching Sixteen Candles before heading to the boards to walk off all the food. MFD and Sean walked out to the end of the jetty, giving my mother a heart attack but getting really great photos I forgot to steal from MFD. I didn't forget to take this photo of him miming April the giraffe's birth event in Shriver's.
Sunday morning sunrise from St. Jame's Place + a sweet ass shell find.
Then a lovely, leisurely morning as it warmed up. Rich biked, MFD went to church and then hung blinds in our apartment, the men hung a mirror on the top floor, Sean carried furniture down from the top floor, Mom made dinner and picked up some of it from Bennie's, and Debbie and I finished the contact paper half wall on the top floor.
Then we hit the beach for our first dedicated beach day of the year. When we first got down there, it was hot as a summer's day with the wind coming off the bay. Debbie was forced to buy short shorts due to the heat. Then the sea breeze kicked in and it was quite chilly so we had to retreat closer to the boardwalk and Rich had to get sweatshirts and blankets from the house. Aubrey's parents were down for the day and sat down next to us totally by accident and we ended up spending the day together. It was great! We came back to the house around 4:30 and ate Easter dinner like we were going to the electric chair. Everyone left by 6:30 and MFD and I shit it down and we're home by 10 with very tired dogs in tow.power breakfast muffins or celery with hummus; Wednesday night I made turchicken burgers and froze them for this week's lunches and they'll be served with a side of roasted potatoes; dinner is leftovers of which I have a ton and whatever I can pull from the freezer this week.
I'm drowsy from sun and sand and salt air. It was a wonderful Easter weekend with my family in my favorite place. I hope yours was spectacular!
