After being stationed at Ft. Monmouth for several years, we returned for many wonderful summers at the Jersey Shore . . . the summers of any child’s dreams! We would rent wonderful houses on Manasquan Beach.
Up early … play all day … listening to the waves at night … no phone, no television … only friends and a radio and the sun and shore to delight in!


The children and I were on vacation … and Dad-Husband would be at work at Ft. Monmouth for the Army. We really did feel bad for him, but I think he enjoyed the best of both worlds!


Strip journaling: “Late afternoon after a long day playing in the sun, sand & the ocean is the golden hour after dinner.”
