It is the last weekend before Memorial Day at the Jersey shore...who has plans. Well if you live in New Jersey I am sure you have a plan. A BBQ, a trip to the beach, drinks and more drinks with friends at a bar. For all of you who have not expereinced a Jersey shore weekend or a Jersey summer you do not know what your missing. There are no words to help me describe it to you you just have to see it to believe it. I for one live at the shore and can enjoy the beach, the ocean, fresh crab caught crabbing, clams, Barnegat bay scallops, the whole expereince all year long - I am so lucky!
If you have not visited the Jersey shore do yourself a favor and make it a point to do so. There is nothing like a walk on the boardwalk, Saw Mill pizza in Seaside, drinks at Martell's Tiki Bar in Point Pleasant, the beach on LBI, or the rides and games in Wildwood. You name it there is something to eat, drink and see anywhere Down the Shore! Happy Almost Memorial Day...
