I’m so happyВ that it’s summer. And I’m even more thrilled that I’ll be spending a week at the beach!
My friends and I rented a house on Long Beach Island, on the Jersey shore. (No, it’s definitely not like THAT Jersey Shore.)
I used to vacation on the island when I was a kid. I remember it being sleepy and quaint—no chain stores, lots of mom and pop restaurants, tons of mini golf courses. My sister and I loved Fantasy Island (the island’s little amusement park) so much, that we even rode and named the same carousel horses year after year. (Mine was “Galaxy.”)
I haven’t been back to LBI in almost 20 years, so I’m excited to see what it’s like now. Either way, I’m expecting to have a very nice, relaxing time. It’s hard to beat long days at the beach.
I may or may not be posting next week, so in the meantime, a few quick links from around the web:
There’s a tech edition of Cards Against Humanity. Yessssssss.
Some cool photos and video of the Oakland Ballet working with street dancers. (I’m a big fan of Storehouse, the platform on which that was built. So awesome for telling stories. Can we get that functionality on WordPress, please?)
Have a warm and sunny weekend!
What a wonderful weekend plan! I have never been to Long Beach Island… In fact, all those years I lived in NYC, I seldom went to any beach at all… just once on Coney Island and then once on Long Island, and that wasn’t even a sandy beach, LOL. Enjoy yourself! Look forward to seeing pictures рџ™‚
P.S. Love that blog of Oakland Ballet. The video banner on Storehouse is really cool. And thanks for the giggles from the IKEA cat bed photo. My late Swedish cat would’ve appreciated it, but she would probably have told me, “IKEA beds are too cheap for my taste!” рџ›
Thanks! I’m back and had a great time—and will be posting some photos soon!
Hope it’s wonderful. I remember Nags Head so fondly that I’m scared to go back and have it be too different.
Thank you! I had a wonderful time. And I haven’t been to Nags Head, but now you’ve given me a reason to check it out sometime. рџ™‚
