Seaside

Crescent Beach is my favorite beach in the area. It always has been. I love the look(crescent, yes), the feel of the sand, the view and even the snackbar and dressing rooms. Others will sing the praises of East End, Willard, Ferry, Scarborough, Pine Point, Higgins, or even OOB, but I was never really drawn to these. Even in high school, when Higgins Beach was the place to go to meet the girls and hang out. I'd rather take a ride with friends at night to Pine Point or Massacre Lane and stand in seemingly total darkness, have a brew and wait for the goosebumps to run the gamut of my arms to neck. Did I miss something? Like us all, I'm really not sure. A visit to the boardwalk at Seaside Heights on the Jersey Shore last week, got me thinking of these summers past.

  1. Idyllic. What a fabulous shot. And no, you didn't miss anything at all. You had your priorities right even then. Good for you. Such a beautiful beach, all that glorious sand and doubtless a dishy lifeguard to keep the girls' attention!

  4. Judging by that arm, the lifeguard has one amazing physique. I'd feel wonderfully safe swimming there under his watchful eye. Love this shot, Birdman.
