Boardwalk, Sand, and Rain. So much rain.

So yesterday I shared with you my muddy forest adventure. How about today we take a look at the Jersey Shore in the rain?

Settle in, folks, because this is a photo-heavy post! I did put them into a couple of galleries, so you don’t have to sit through 50 full-size photos loading. (You can click on anything you want to see in more detail.)

A few weekends ago, we spent a handful of (not enough) days in Ocean City, as we do every mid-May. It rained at least a little bit every day, and a lot for two of them. I used my phone for the majority of my photography because it was easier, the phone is more waterproof than my DSLR, and the phone camera is actually pretty good, especially in the daylight.

Where I did take the fancy camera out was on our one beach day. I like using the 250mm lens so I can plop myself down on the blanket, and zoom in on everything from my comfy spot.

I did get up and walk around, too. I’m not that lazy 😜

And no trip to OC is complete without shots down the boardwalk from the hotel balcony… Our last night there was actually sunny and lovely, so the camera came out on our evening walk down the boardwalk, too.

So that’s our 10th Ocean City trip, in the bag. As always, we spend a lot of it daydreaming about someday being able to spend more time there. We did, in fact, tack an extra day onto our long weekend when the sun we had barely seen made an appearance as we were packing to leave. Sometimes you just have to blow off everything else for the sake of family togetherness on a sunny day!

BTW, I left my Instagram photos out of this because I already posted them as part of this TWiP and that TWiP 😃

  1. I think that anytime a post is photo-heavy like one, is a good one especially when the photos are as gorgeous as yours. Always a treat to see the world and travels through your lens, I can’t believe I am just finding your blog.
    What a wonderful excursion!

    1. Thanks, Andi! I thought for sure you’d been here before, since we’re each others’ contacts on Flickr, but I guess not! Glad you liked the photos 🙂

  2. Wow, these photos are amazing! I think my very favorite is the one that looks like it was taken under the pier. And I love, love all that blue!! 🙂

    1. Thanks, Jamie! I really like that pier photo, too 🙂
