Sundays in My City:
Springtime at the Jersey Shore

Photo1624.jpg

I love this time of year, here in on the Jersey coast, when my kids and I feel very lucky to have quick access to some of the prettiest beaches, like our favorite at the Gateway National Recreation Area in Sandy Hook, NJ.

The parking lot fills up pretty quick in the summer.  Friday, however, was the perfect day to celebrate all the good things that living in a shore town has to offer.

Like, exploring the jetty.

Or, playing chicken with the breakwater.

Getting lost, for hours, hunting for sea glass and mermaid toe nails.

Having the beach, all to ourselves, is a luxury and a perfect time for private contemplation.

Aaaand, much silliness.

Yes, Friday was a good day. In fact, seeing how this weekend is going, I'm still there...lalalalalalalalala!

Happy Sunday!!!

Sundays in My City:
Beware the Icicle Slayer

Ice swan
I know, I know, enough with the snowmaggedon posts, already.  Still.  This winter has made for some really beautiful pictures -- here in Jersey, anyway -- like these ice swans captured by my 15 yo, in our backyard, the other day.  She's majoring in photo journalism and, well, the girl has a great eye, no?

Ice, Ice, Baby III
Oh, and the icicles?  They are EPIC this year.  I'm so glad I took this shot outside our  den/guestroom/laundryroom/playroom...before they ALL melted.

The Icicle Slayer
Or, before my oldest (a.k.a. Holly the Icicle Slayer) got her hands on them and, truth be told, having caught a glimpse of her darkside, you'd never know that, IRL, she's really an Italian literature and arts major, right?

I was a little frightened for the wreath's safety.

So, I thought it was probably a good idea to, you know, step back and put down my brand new camera, frigalicious as it is (yes, it's a word!) not to mention, put away the rest of the Christmas decorations...I know...shuddup!

Ice Saber

But, not before grabbing this shot, as she claimed her trophy and, well, thank goodness her little brother wasn't home to, you know, turn it into a weapon and pretend it was an ice saber, or something.

Before it melted, of course -- Happy Sunday!!!
