“Where Shall We Go Next?” IMG_7482

This photo was taken on the Ocean City Boardwalk in July 2017. It is a candid photo depicting my family’s feet as we gathered on the boardwalk one night and discussed where we were going to head after our delicious Manco and Manco pizza dinner.

IMG_7901“Cloudy Day on the Beach”

This photo was taken on the Sea Isle City beach in July 2017. It was a beautiful day with fluffy white (and a few gray) clouds floating by.



“Sunset at Sunset Pier”IMG_7377

This photo was taken just after my family enjoyed a lovely pre-sunset dinner at Sunset Pier in Townsends Inlet. It’s one of our favorite dining destinations with a view.

IMG_7303Sunset Walk at Townsends Inlet Park” 

On this night my family came to the Townsends Inlet Park to photograph the sunset. This photo was taken along the path before we got to the beach.


“Dinner at Carmen’s”IMG_4735

No matter what time of day you eat at Carmen’s (they serve breakfast, lunch and dinner) the view, and the food, is always amazing!

“Summer Storm Collection” 

We had a lot of rain this summer, which made for some very interesting cloud formations.

“Lightening Collection”

These were taken with an iPhone at around midnight. See how the lightening lights up the midnight sky (not the best quality, but amazing how lightening lights up the night beach!)

And not to leave this on a bad note, some photos taken on nicer days…


Let us know what you think!
