My family has been vacationing at Ortley Beach, NJ for most of my life. Thirty years ago, I convinced my dad to purchase a small bungalow on the bay, which he rebuilt into a three-story house. It has been through three hurricanes and is still standing.
Every summer we take the week of August 4th off to celebrate my mother’s birthday.
The week is full of boogie boarding on Island Beach State Park (my favorite beach in NJ), kayaking, taking the dogs to the beach and now trailering Geddy Lee around on the bicycle, and lots of family bonding dinners.
It’s a week never to forget.
Remember to take some time off this summer, relax and enjoy your family.
Love and hugs,
