Yesterday, while listening to Dennis & Judi on NJ101.5 I heard a caller talk about doing a blog challenge. Basically it is the A to Z challenge. Every day you have to post about topic for each letter of the alphabet, in order. There is a link over there to the right if you want to join in!
My challenge to myself is to blog about something beach or New Jersey related for each letter. This is going to be interesting when we get to Q or X! LOL
New Jersey has about 130 miles of coast line. It's the only place in the world where you have to PAY to get on the beach. Sure, other places charge for parking, they do that here too! My town started a new thing that they start charging for parking starting April 1st. I thought at first it was a April Fools joke, but no, it's real. AND they don't have season parking passes ready yet. But the happy news, since I go to the beach to do my beach writings, I can write the expense off on my taxes! It's a bit ridiculous that they start charging for parking when the season doesn't even start until Memorial Day!!!!
So if you want to enjoy the Jersey Shore without paying to get on the beach, get a boat. Yeah it's not cheaper to have a boat vs. paying for a beach pass, but there are benefits to being on boat vs the beach.
You can be topless if you want
You can smoke
You can have ALCOHOL
(though have a designated driver)
If you don't like where you've anchored your boat, just bring up the anchor & move!
However, if you are on a boat and not on the beach, you have NO chance of running into me doing my beach writings. Sometimes I even draw boats!
