10/19 - 10/21 Weekend Update8:38 AM
I love New York City, I really can't imagine living anywhere else, BUT occasionally it is really nice to get away from it all so when I had an opportunity to go down the shore for the weekend I didn't hesitate. Oh the smell of the fresh ocean air (the only air you get in the city is air that is polluted with cigarettes and car fumes) it really has the ability to make an angry New Yorker (like myself) relax and unwind.
And i know what most of you are thinking. Why would I go to the beach in October when its cold. Nothing gets better than sitting on the beach in a pair of big sweatpants and an oversized sweater watching the fall surfers go to town on the particularly large waves. Beach towns turn into ghost towns, and the only people you interact with are the locals who prefer to live by the ocean all year round.
High tide much?
