Dear friends of ours who live in MS have been vacationing up north for the week, staying at a beach house in Avalon, NJ that’s owned by a friend. They brought their three grown children and their grandchildren, and members of their family in NJ have been in and out all week.
Avalon is only a 2-hour journey from our house, and I’d chosen this day to visit them, taking the day off from work. My husband and I left early in the morning and as we got close to our destination, I could begin to smell the heady scent of the seashore.
I love that smell. I grew up with that smell.
Most of the vacationers were awake when we arrived, but we wanted to see the ocean right away, so down the street we walked and up the sandy path.
To see the sea.
The beach was practically empty.
And the colors were lovely.
We were only down here for about five minutes, but I was happy with the shots I took.
The houses in Avalon are very lah-di-dah.
That one on the right is huge, isn’t it? There’s a close-up of it at the end of this post.

Taken from the third floor deck where my friends are staying. The house has so many little decks, and such a wonderful view from this one.

Tomorrow I have more plans that include traveling so I’ll keep you posted. But for now I need to get some sleep. Hope you enjoyed the ocean views ~
