Memorial Day weekend marks the start of summer. SO it was time for our first summer road trip. What else to do but head to the beach down the Jesey Shore?

Our first stop was Wildwood NJ

We had lunch at the Doo Wop Diner

Unfortunately it was too windy for the International Kite Festival, but we had a lovely stroll around Wildwood beach, boardwalk, convention center and playground…

Some much needed quiet time back at the hotel in Ocean City. Then dinner at Nino’s family restaurant (with it’s fun spaghetti and HUGE serves)…

The on to Reed’s beach to see the annual horseshoe crabs mate & lay their eggs by the full moon.

Unfortunately it was too windy for these guys today too, but we  had a lovely time playing and watching the sun go down.

It was a full moon 😦 but there were not too many crabs to be seen. It was also sad to see how devastated the area still is from Hurricane Sandy.
Back at the hotel we went for either a little bored walk or a little board walk to check out the full moon and wind down…

So the day didn’t quite go to plan, but we still had a great day 🙂
