This weekend was heaven – a pure recharge for the soul. It has been a rough past month for us, and I hate being vague like that, but not everything is blog worthy, and a weekend at the beach was just what we needed.
We traveled down to Avalon, NJ with my family. This is the town that I vacationed in as a very young child and it contains so many memories for me.
September at the beach is a magical time.
The sun is still warm, but the crowds are gone. Although you may need a sweatshirt on the beach, it’s still restorative and peaceful. I’m a devoted North Carolina beach girl – in favor of warmer water temps, wider beaches, no lifeguards, and FAR less crowds. However, New Jersey beaches also have their own beauty, and September really lets that beauty shine through.
Just look at that sky – how can you look at that and not believe in hope? And that’s what we got this weekend. I much needed dose of hope.
