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!
We were on vacation this past week. And by we I mean the Roomie, Bean, Hazel, Mick, Chris and myself. You didn’t think I was going to miss vacation did ya? Seriously, if anyone needs a vacation it’s the guy with the fractured nose, lol.
Everyone wanted their picture taken. Here were are at the S.S. Atlantus at Sunset Beach, Cape May, New Jersey.
Down the street from Sunset Beach is the World War II Lookout Tower. It was very cool. The tour guides were Seniors who had served or lived during WWII and were from the area.
There were about 150 Steps which was no problem because the Roomie walked them and we got a ride with her. Sucker!
This site has a lot of History. During the war it was a lookout point for German U-Boats. They even captured one-off the coast. It hosts memorials to the soldiers who survived and those who didn’t come home at all. It’s quite moving.
Before the big shindig (aka The Wedding) I got up with the Roomie at 5am to go see the sun rise. It was cool and very pretty. I was only a little grumpy about the hour of the morning the sun rises over the ocean.
We then walked the Boardwalk. The big Summer Season actually starts Memorial Day Weekend but it was cool to hit the boards early.
And then I took the boat out for a spin. The waves proved to be an arch nemesis! Dang you massive waves!!!
And watched the Fisherman Fish…man.
And then…we went to the Wedding…Look for part three tomorrow!
The Roomie’s niece got married this weekend so we went to New Jersey for the festivities. I’ve been stoked for weeks because Roomie’s family is totally fun and they like to dance. Seriously…that’s wicked awesome!
New Jersey...The Highway View
There was a lot of traffic headed to the Jersey shore this weekend. That tends to happen this time of year with the warm weather and Memorial Day being next week and all. Once we got to Ocean City…our destination zone I hit the beach.
Yeah I know you are digging my swim trunks! We all went out to dinner afterward. I had a veggie goodness platter and it was good.
Dinner with Friends
I have to admit I love the beach. It’s not the same as life on Fjord but it’s got a lot going for it. I got to leave my footprints in the sand and I even went in the water…which was very, very cold but it was fun.
