Thankful Thursday 7/28/2016

I'm thankful that I had a beautiful trip to Asbury Park last weekend. Although the weather was hot, I really enjoyed the beach time. I'm thankful for the nice people I met on the beach.The family sitting near me, the one used to be a librarian for Ambler and her daughter is a librarian now for Ambler. I told her I worked as a page for Upper Merion Township Library. That created a rapport - while I was at the arcade for an hour, they watched my things with no problem. I am thankful for them.

When I met Adam and his friends walking on the beach, the story behind that will be the subject of another blog entry, the family watched my things as I hung out with Adam and company. I am thankful Adam invited me to hang out with them on the beach, then his one friend giving me a fruit drink he made. They were very welcoming of me and we all had a great time. It was just a very nice two hours. It felt like I knew them for a while; we had a lot in common.

I'm also thankful that Jared invited me along to his friend's 29th birthday party and I am grateful his friends were welcoming. I had such a great time and great laughs.

I made many wonderful memories during this trip and I'm thankful for that. I'm also thankful for Janie and my soon to be former coworker proofreading my resume so I can start working on my dreams. I appreciate you both and you both gave me some great suggestions.

What are you thankful for today?

Asbury Park Beach | July 23

On Friday I forgot I didn't put the battery in my digital camera and left the battery back in the hotel room, so on Friday I took pictures with the film camera. Dad dropped the film off today; once I get the film back, I will post the pictures. However, before I made a trip back to my hotel (I didn't realize the battery wasn't in the camera at that point), I did take a picture of the beach with my cellphone.

After breakfast I decided to walk to the beach to get beach pictures with my DSLR camera, then walk back to the hotel to get changed into my swim suit and the small point and shoot to get pictures for the rest of the day. Here are the pictures I took with the DSLR.

On July 23, I spent the entire morning and most of the afternoon (until 3:30 PM) on the beach. Despite the sand being super hot, the water was freezing, though it felt good. I spent a good 3.5 hours in the water and I enjoyed every moment of it.

Then I decided to play with bubbles. I only managed to get two good pictures of the bubbles.

I've always been a water baby; water is my element. I guess it makes sense since my astrological sign is Cancer crab. Water just makes me feel energized.
