My weekend at the shore on the east coast had all the necessary elements for a great short vacation with family. We spent a day on the beach and the boardwalk. New Jersey beaches are one of the more entertaining spots for people watching.
My brother cooked us lobsters for dinner two nights in a row. He even pre-cracked the shells making it a fully indulgent experience.
In my family, no beach vacation is ever complete without a Scrabble tournament. My dad is somewhat of a master of the game. He only beat me by a point in our last game, and I am already ready for our rematch.
