Wow, what a great weekend on Long Beach Island.  Don was able to leave work at 4 pm on Friday, which was a real treat for all of us.   We had just decided to go and I think I made the reservations on Thursday.  We picked a place on the beach and close to the little town.  It ended up being a perfect location.  And even though all the ocean front rooms were already booked, we were pretty pleased with our outdoor space and our view.  

Ready to hit the beach.

I have two favorite photos from the weekend and this is one of my favorites.  Maybe it's my memory of the early evening sun low in the sky and all the shells on the beach casting long shadows.  This photo takes me right back to the beach.

And my other favorite image from the weekend.

It was great getting down to LBI on Friday night and having the full day on the beach/island.    All Quinn wanted to do was dig.  Bigger, deeper, bigger, deeper.  He has lots of fun being buried in the sand over and over and over again.  


The hotel has a beachside bar/restaurant which was convenient for lunches in wet, sandy bathing suits.

Quinn making friends.

This pool was FREEZING!  They will start heating it next weekend but that didn't deter our Mighty Quinn.   I didn't bring a bathing suit so Don was on lifeguard duty.  Quinn wanted to go in again on Sunday but the air temp was much cooler and he wasn't quite as brave.

We were able to park our car on Friday night and walk everywhere we needed to go.  We had hoped to catch the rides/arcade but it doesn't open until next week.  Instead we had some fun with miniature golf before dinner.    Quinn loved to whack the ball!

We got to bed early on Saturday night so we could enjoy some beach time on Sunday.  It was a little cooler but we still dug lots of holes.  Quinn had a busy morning playing and chasing waves.  We wrapped him up in a dry towel and he cuddled up on me for a little late morning nap.  We had a late lunch and then hit the road.

I think this weekend may qualify as one of my favorites in NJ.  It was everything we wanted and needed and hope to make it back to LBI soon.
