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.
