I love Pittsburgh I really do, but I also really wish it was closer to a beach, a REAL beach, not a lake, or a river, but the beach. Although those other bodies of water are great, there is nothing that compares to the real beach, with the waves, and the smell, and the sand. Growing up in NJ I was lucky enough to make day trips/ week trips to the beach in the summer often enough, now I have to make a special LONG trips to the beach, but it is definetly worth it.
A few weeks ago ALV, LES and I went to visit my parents on LBI ( Long Beach Island). It was such a great vacation and so nice to be close to the ocean.
ALV's birthday fell over the weekend we were there so we made sure we celebrated with some cake....and a monsoon on our way out to celebrate. Looking sexy :)
We had my mom conduct a photo shoot
Tried to catch some crabs ( not so successful)
and made sure we lounged in the lagoon with a Marg
It was a great escape and so nice to hang out with my parents, hopefully my "ocean time" will last me til next time.
