Beach Shopping

Today I went to Five Below to buy some things I could take to Asbury Park next week. I love that store because I can get inexpensive things that are fun. I bought a beach ball, a Frisbee, goggles, and sun glasses. I look forward to playing with the ball and Frisbee on the beach - maybe start a game with people I meet while on my trip.

I will also be bringing a fitted sheet for the sand, as well as a towel. I have a rolling backpack from my college days that I will use when I am on the bus to Asbury Park. I'm super excited and I'm super excited to wear my bathing suit!


  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    I visited Asbury Park in the summer of 1965 when I was age 15. My family also stayed at a place in nearby Point Pleasant that summer. Get this. My favorite color is green and my lucky numbers are 6 and 16. We went to the amusement park and I made my way to the bumper cars (Scooters) which I loved. I hopped inside the green #6 car and found a $10 bill on the seat! That was a lot of money in those days. Next I went to a roulette wheel game of chance thingy and placed a quarter on the #16 spot. I ended up winning 3 packs of cigarettes which they were willing to give me because my mother was with me and she smoked. My color and numbers all came through for me the same afternoon!

    I remember when Wham-O toy company first put the Frisbee on the market in June 1957. I bought one that year and had loads of fun tossing it with my friends.

    I hope you have great weather for your visit to Asbury Park, dear friend Jessica!

    1. Hi Shady!

      This will be my first time visiting Asbury Park! I will have to see if that amusement park is still around and if it is, if I can get to it as a non-driver. Amusement parks are so much fun and the way you describe it, it sounds like it was a good day that day. :)

      Thank you! I am hoping as well; the way the weather has been here, it should be!
