The topic for each day will begin with the designated letter of the alphabet.
Today’s letter is B.
I am a Jersey girl, born and bred. So of course the beach, or as we refer to it, “down the shore” has always been a part of my life.
For us to go“ down the shore” we would have to travel at least an hour on the major state highway. The Garden State Parkway, or more commonly known as just “the parkway”, was and still is a nightmare during the summer. So that hour usually turned into two.
But, there has never been a summer that I have not “gone down the shore.”
|They are feverishly working on the bridge. |
I’m not quite sure what it is they are doing, though.
It’s just over the bridge.
And now we don’t have to wait until summer to go to the beach. A benefit of living close to the ocean and of retirement.
The beach is not a place we go to relax like we did when we only had that one vacation from work week. We can relax anytime.
It’s now a place we go to reinvigorate. It the place we go when there is a chill in the air to take in a deep breath of ocean.
We now have the freedom to get there early and leave before noon and have the whole beach to ourselves.
It has become the place where we go to reminisce about little giggly voices, wave chases and sand ballets.
And I am still in awe each and every time I bow before her Majesty.
