The Beach in Winter
There is nothing I love more than the beach of the Jersey shore. While most wouldn't consider these near freezing temperatures exactly "down the Shore" weather, I kind of love the waves and sand in winter. It's peaceful and relaxing and dare I say cozy all bundled up down on the boardwalk. What I love about Asbury Park at this time of year is that they still have stuff going on. Asbury used to be down and out but with a lot of rebuilding in the downtown and along the boardwalk, I do believe it's making a comeback. Nick and I checked out the convention hall which has such beautiful architectural details. We also popped into a funky tiki-inspired restaurant to grab a drink and warm-up.
I'm so glad I convinced Nick to take me to see the waves and smell the salty air. The beach is good for the soul.
