Sea Isle City

We were invited to go spend a day with some friends while they were renting a beach house in Sea Isle City, NJ. I have never been to the ocean in New Jersey before and just assumed it was all like you would see on tv.
It was nothing like how either of us thought. It was quiet and beautiful. I have been pretty bummed that we aren't close to the ocean anymore but I was excited when I found out it was only a 1 1/2 away. I'm sure by next year we will have all the spots to go down.

Elinor was kind of confused at first where all the rocks were. She decided instead of trying to return all the rocks, she would work on the dry sand. Handful by handful for 2 hours she ran back and forth from the dry sand to the water. I love how she gets so determined to do something.

After returning as much sand as she could she finally realized there were other things to do there. She tried out digging and actually playing in the water! It helped having her friends around so she could see what they were doing. We usually just go to the beach alone.

Who's up for a couple more beach trips before this weather ends??

  1. Aww wow! I would have never guessed the beaches in New Jersey were that nice

  2. I am with annieglan, I too have a negative view of the Jersey Shore. It looks beautiful and how do you keep Elinor's glasses on

  3. You should look into coming to Asbury Park/Ocean Grove beaches sometime! The beaches are super kid friendly (& Free after this weekend!) & there are a few amazing vegan restaurants in a 5 mile radius, Seed to Sprout in Avon, Kaya's Kitchen in Belmar & vegan ice cream at Cookman Creamery in Asbury Park.

    1. Is that near you?? We should go soon and meet up!
