Someone I once dated used to keep track of how many beach days a year he was racking up. I should have done that this year, because I’m doing pretty well on the beach day front.
Today’s beach adventure was out to Sea Girt, NJ, a really cute little town about an hour and a half from my parents’ house. Earlier in the week, both Lacey and my mom separately asked if I wanted to go to the beach. Luckily, they didn’t mind going with each other, and so the three of us went.
I woke up without an alarm at 6:30 and headed out for a quick 45-minute bike ride for cross training. (I’m in shock, too, don’t worry.) My mom picked up me and Lacey at 8:45 from my apartment and we drove to my apartment to drop Bailey off before heading to the beach. We finally made it there by about 11:30.
It was incredibly sunny, and the sand was scalding hot, so we spent a lot of time in the water.
My mom usually drives me and Bailey back because he’s a heavy dude in his bag, but I gave her a break tonight after our long day in the sun, and Lacey and I took the train back. We figured we probably spent more time traveling than at the beach today, but my tan says it’s worth it.
Dog in a bag!
How many days have you been to the beach this year?
