Today I thought I’d once again highlight one of my favorite photos.
This one was taken in October of 2009 at Long Beach Island, NJ.
My parents rented an oceanfront beach house for the week and I drove up from Maryland to join them for a couple of days. The house had an amazing roofdeck!
Now you may be thinking…the beach? in October? Yes, that’s correct.
I actually grew up going to LBI every summer. My family always rented the exact same house right on the beach. Sadly in recent years the house was leveled and a Mc Mansionwas built in its place.
There then came a time when the summer crowds were no longer appealing. It was then that my family started heading down in the early fall. Sure we lost out on tanning time, and a bunch of restaurants and shops close for the off-season, but having the island more to yourself is an enjoyable experience.
Perhaps I’ll do an extended Long Beach Island post one day, but for now, enjoy the rising sun!
