Our anniversary trip was a nice one. Cold, wet, wintery, but nice 🙂 I’ve got a slide show prepared for each day. If you like that kind of thing, read on! If you can think of nothing you’d dislike more than looking at someone else’s vacation slides, then you can have a pass. Aren’t I nice?
It was the best day weather-wise, around 60 degrees and sunny. I didn’t take many pictures then. We did a lot of walking around outside, and some kicking back inside.
By far my most photo-heavy day, Tuesday started off rainy and ended that way, too. But for most of the middle of the day it was merely cloudy and chilly. It was do-able weather, and I went out by myself in the late morning and wandered around town with my camera. I took pictures of the great Victorian houses that caught my eye, and I spent some time on the boardwalk.
After lunch, Neil and I went out together and walked into Asbury Park, where I also put my camera to work.
Can you believe how much it still looks like winter here? It was bitterly cold that day, so it felt like February just as much as it looked like it. Neil and I tried to go out in the evening to take some artistic photos of the movement of water, but it was so horrible out there we gave up almost immediately! I took a couple of pictures of wet boardwalk that I really like, but then we ran back to the hotel and decided we were in for the night. I hung up my pants to dry, and we ordered take-out.
We thought we’d stick around for lunch, but we took another walk to the beach and nearly froze our faces off. We changed our minds and went home instead.
It was a nice time, and I’m glad we went, but I think we were exactly seven days too early. This week had been positively lovely, weather-wise!
