My sister, a college friend and some of her friends rent the bottom of a house for a week in Wildwood Crest. Saturday, August 4, was very hot and our trip to the shore took 5 hours from Philadelphia when it should only take 2. The traffic was a crawl for 8 miles on 55 and then on 47 and 347. I think everyone was headed to the shore on the hot sunny day.
Nona and Kathy relaxing on the beach. It was sunny but very windy.
Lynda, Dottie and Lynn.
The water was great! Warm and just right for floating and riding waves.
Lynda even got in the water one day, Kathy was in alot.
Lynn went home on Tuesday and then brought Lorraine down with her Wednesday night. Now there were six, but only for a night for Nona went home Thursday evening.
Thursday was the only real sunny day we had where we needed to sit under the umbrellas.
Since Tuesday the weather was cloudy and a little drizzly we went shopping at Cape May.
It was rainy on Friday so I got out my 1000 piece puzzle and in 6 hours Kathy, Lorraine and I had it together.
Each of us bring down a meal for five, but we enjoy eating several meals out.
Tradition has it that we go to Duffer's for a meal of ice cream.
Elaborate sundaes and waffle ice cream creations. Could we eat it all?
We licked the bowls and plates clean!
One night we walked up the boardwalk and ate at the Doo Wop diner. Hamburgers of all kinds, fries and shakes. Good thing we were doing a lot of walking.
The big topic of controversy at Wildwood is parking RV's on the beach. These are the site markers for 80 RV's, all dry camping. Many residents are fighting this from happening. I know we aren't going to be driving on that sand!!
A beautiful sunset. We had an enjoyable and fun week and can't wait to go again next year.
