: Shaking Off Cabin Fever at the Jersey Shore!

Shaking Off Cabin Fever at the Jersey Shore!

A great thing about living at the Jersey Shore is you're never too far from the Atlantic Ocean.  

With temperatures on the mainland at 65 degrees today, and finding 90 minutes in my schedule, it meant only one thing. Over the Causeway to Long Beach Island.  Though it was a little cooler over there, man and dog were shaking off cabin fever!

Those are scenes for sore eyes!  We have had rain for about a week thus far, with more rain still coming.  Cabin Fever is a very good label for what I'm experiencing.

Myrl-I'm sure we'll get some more cold weather...but this is nice for a change!

Laura, Spring is just around the corner! Looks like today was a great preview of good things to come. At least let's hope so!

There has always been something special about the ocean, the smell of salt air just isn't everywhere.

I'm so happy better weather has come along! Doesn't it put everyone in a better mood!

Clark-I hope it's here to stay, but I'm doubtful!

Steve-That was my first thought as I stepped on to the beach today...and it was warm enough to take a deep breath without shocking your system!

Patricia-Dogs too!

Good Even Laura, I know what you mean. Here in Milton, I am only 20 minutes from the Gulf and just minutes from the beautiful Blackwater River. Today we hit 70 and it was sunny. Loving it.

65 is swimsuit weather.  What a great day it would be for on the lake.

How I wish at times I could find 90 minutes to run to the ocean. That is one thing you can't do in Denver.

Laura, I haven't been able to squeeze out an extra 90 minutes a week...good for you.  The Jersey Shore looks like a great place to shake off cabin fever.

Laura - I'm right there with ya....As I drove over the Atlantic Beach Causeway yesterday, I had the windows down so I could inhale the salt air.  I love it....and today looks to be even warmer.  Yes, a little cooler again next week, but What a nice break from the "Cabin".   Enjoy it while you can!

Enjoy the beach for me, too! It is warm here also, but a little to far to the beach to just pop over. Looks wonderful.

You guys are right...I've got spring fever!  I can remember when I was in high school, we'd all cut and come down the shore the first day it hit 60!  I don't ever remember that being in February though!

Love the beach, and soooooooooooooo love going!  :)
