Forget what you’ve seen on MTV. This is the Jersey Shore, “Ocean City in May” style.
In other words: cloudy, breezy, reading a book on the blanket, a bit chilly, quiet beach, peaceful, dipping a toe in the ocean, family-friendly, shopping, postponing bedtime to take in the boardwalk lights, ice cream, no crowds, wishing we could stay longer.
A fun time, as usual. I had a blast taking my new camera for a spin. I only wish I had figured out some of the more useful settings for beach and sunset photography, before the cloudy/rainy day of our departure… I still got some perfectly nice pictures, but I can’t help but wonder how optimal camera settings would have improved them.
I guess that gives me a good excuse to get myself to a closer-to-home area of the shore for a day trip or two this summer! (Like I needed an excuse…)
