Because its not summer in Philly without a trip to the Jersey Shore! Even a cloudy day is fun when you’re at the shore. We went down to the beach for the day with a big group of friends and had an absolute blast. Even though it was cloudy and a little chilly when the breeze kicked up, we stayed all day. We found starfish, crabs, and shells. We learned how to boogie board, then learned what happens when your boogie board hits something, and learned what it feels like to do a somersault and face plant in the sand. We learned how to defend ourselves from seagulls. We learned how to build the biggest, hugest drip castle in Ocean City.
(Don’t worry. These creatures were returned to their natural habitat.
I told the kids before we got out of the car at the beach that we were NOT bringing home anything that was alive!!!)
And after releasing our little sea creatures into the wild, we enjoyed a big dinner of extremely healthy, organic boardwalk food.
To quote Colin, “Even when its cloudy, the beach is perfect with all of your friends!”
