Girl About Town: Ocean City, New Jersey

Hello everyone!  I'm unfortunately not one of those people who can go to the beach and just relax on the sand, read a book or take a nap.  I'm way too anxious for that.  That's why I usually gravitate towards places with a boardwalk and hands down my favorite one in New Jersey is in Ocean City.  I'm also a giant fan of mini golf and I think that Ocean City has some of the best courses.  My Mom and I used to take a whole day and go up and down the boardwalk playing every single one.

I went down there over my vacation to take some pictures and enjoy the ocean air.  There's something so magical about the ocean.  Just knowing that out in that water are all these amazing and majestic creatures swimming around, not to mention that on the other side of that ocean are a slew of other countries with different ways of life and culture than me.  It just makes you feel so small to stand there and watch the waves roll in.  Plus there have been a number of great white shark sightings around here and I can only hope that I see one!  I have an obsession with them that is beyond explanation.

I feel like that cloud just wants to bellyflop into the ocean!

Don't mind if I do!  Got myself half a pound of saltwater taffy! <3

And this is when it started to pour on me and I got absolutely soaked while walking five blocks to my car >.<

Isn't it beautiful?  I love that place.  I need to go back before the summer is over!
