we weren't able to spend very much time at the beach on our vacation.
no big deal, i guess. i think the bit of time we had was enough.
breathing the salty air as we strolled down the beaten boardwalk felt wonderful.
the smell of fresh caramel corn and pretzels, making me hungry even though i'd just eaten.
kids scampering by with tangled wet hair heading for the amusement rides.
flashing lights and ringing bells from the arcades on every other block.
body piercing shops, hermit crab shops and a kite loft all bustling with sunburned visitors.
hearing elijah giggle at the seagulls,
huge waffle cones dripping with frozen custard
and a bucket of thrasher's fries made it just right.
linked up with fabulous darcy. the fry photo. obviously my fave.
