The Roomie took us to the Beach again this year for Vacation. Fun had by all…especially me!
I was all over the Jersey Shore. From Wildwood Crest to Cape May to Ocean City. I was getting it done!
I saw the Sunken Ship at Sunset Beach, Cape May.
I saw the World War II Watch Tower as well. What a view!
I went Shopping at the Washington Street Mall.
Stopped by Winterwood for some Christmas Cheer!
Watched Totality of the Solar Eclipse on TV because Jersey didn’t experience Totality.
But what we did have was pretty spectacular any way.
I watched the Sunset at Sunset Lake in Wildwood Crest.
And I spent the day at the bay with my friends.
The Beach…oh the beach…I heart you most of all. What a vacation it was!
Our local community hosts these Outdoor Movie Nights at various venues/parks around the area. Last night we watched Raiders of the Lost Ark at Hope Lodge. It was a perfect night. Popcorn was tasty, movie was a classic and the temperature was in the low 70’s. The stars were shining over head too.
Jenny enjoyed it too. She’s been wanting to do this for some time now but being a Super Hero is very time-consuming and exhausting. It was a nice break for her. So far, the Summer of Barry has been excellent!
Today at lunchtime we headed over the the Arboretum for some fresh air.
The flowers were so beautiful. A little peace is a wonderful thing.
We’ve had very heavy rains the last 3 days. I went down to the Creek to see what it looked like.
It’s muddy and the water is very high on the banks.
It was beautiful in its own way. I’m just glad we don’t live near a body of water.
We decided to do the Christmas in July theme this summer.
First we went to Byers Choice in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
It was so much fun. They served cookies and peppermint ice cream.
They had all kinds of displays, not just Christmas, although that was the theme.
Barry got to see some other former Presidents. He wonders what he will look like as a doll (lol).
On Sunday, we decided to continue the adventure of Christmas in July. We went to the National Christmas Center in Paradise, Pennsylvania (near Lancaster).
So much fun. The exhibits took me way back in time.
There were exhibits celebrating Christmas in many different Countries.
Also, Christmas Trees abound here.
I got to do some “shopping” at Woolworth’s. It was a really fun time. Christmas In July was something new for us and it was bunches of fun!
Um…Me thinks it’s going to rain….
…and then it did…a lot…like 2″.
I like this historic house a lot. It was built-in 1728 by the Keith Family.
The property was a huge asset during the Revolutionary War for both Washington’s and Howe’s Forces. The Patriots used this property during the local battles. When the British took over the area with their victories against the Americans after the Battle of Brandywine. They set up encampment here using the farms resources.
It was a hot and steamy afternoon but well worth the trip. Stop by if you are ever in the Horsham area!
The Roomie heard about the Air Victory Museum last summer but this is the first chance we’ve had to see it.
The Summer of Barry continues with this museum. They had a piece of the 911 site and an exhibit to the tragedy of 911. It is a part of American History now. It brought up sorrow but it was an important exhibit.
There were many planes. Model Planes and some helicopters.
Buddy is a history lover from way, way back. There were exhibits for Amelia Earhart and the Hindenberg Disaster.
Barry was thinking how cool it would be to fly one of these jets. Fast and Furious….mach 3 style!
When we left we headed over to Mt. Holly, NJ for some lunch. Jimmy and Eddie found the food amazing and the beer even more amazing, lol!
This summer Barry is going to take some fun adventures. Well, at least that’s what he tells us, lol.
Memorial Day is a day of reverence for out fallen protectors. It is also the unofficial start to summer. Barry went to the Memorial Day Parade to pay his respects and enjoy the neighbors.
This summer Barry is going to partake in a lot of the activities I would have normally done. I’m getting older and more fragile but I’m not completely out of the picture. This is my page after all but this Norwegian is going to take it light this summer, lol.
To all those who served and protected us…THANK YOU!
