Images from a beach weekend getaway...



.
Wildwood, New Jersey..... an off season shore getaway during the worst storm in a decade. The city was effectively closed down right after we got there, with all the bridges blocked and the Guard ferrying people out. Our hotel was at the high point, which in Wildwood means an inch or two in elevation.

We never lost power, but our choices of activity were limited. The rain was falling in sheets and sideways in a 50 mph wind. The streets were closed a few blocks in any direction and there was no place to go, and nothing to do.

Nothing but...... go up a few floors from our suite and get massages at the spa. Lounge in the hot tub and steam room. Swim in the indoor pool while watching the storm rage through the glass roof. Go down to the bar and drink cold beer, while eating crab stuffed mushrooms and blackened scallops for dinner. Nothing to do... but take long afternoon naps....

Yup, it was pretty rough, but we made it through in one piece.

My parents honeymooned in Wildwood New Jersey 61 years ago. They are still together, the place must have good mojo!

Must have been the remnants of Hurricane Ida; the same storm interfered with my vacation at the NC Outer Banks and Virginia Beach, VA.
