There’s nothing I love more than traveling with friends, and holiday weekends are the perfect excuse for a trip somewhere.
Like last year, I went with a group down to LBI where one of our friend Chris has a house at the beach.
It’s so nice to be able to get away like that from time to time. Sometimes you gotta just relax and hangout with friends.
We got so lucky with the weather that weekend too. It was supposed to be the rainiest Memorial Day Weekend in years, but it only rained a little and just at night. The beach gods must have wanted us to have a good weekend.
There was one day that the weather was more overcast and windy, but we made the best of it. We spent the day at a lighthouse and climbed to the top. It took a lot more energy than I expected, but the view was worth it.
Afterward, we stopped for some lunch at a seafood place where I warmed up to a bowl of the best clam chowder I’ve ever had. Everything was so unbelievably fresh and delicious. I’m definitely going to make my way back there next time.
Another highlight of this weekend was the amazing sunsets we had. They really are one of my favorite things about summer. Catching them at the beach is just another plus.
My other favorite thing about summer is getting to do things like and making great memories… and capturing them of course.
Nothing like a long weekend filled with good times and good company.
