Sailor for a Day and The Beach

This week, Son went on the AJ Meerwold which is NJ's Tall Ship.  He was Sailor for a Day.  Its a day camp where kids ages 10-16 get to sail the boat for the day with the help of the crew.  If you remember, back in May we watched her sail past our house and also took a sunset cruise on her.  It was lovely!

This is from May when she sailed past our house.

Info about the boat

Son waiting patiently to board.

The Boat sailing back into port at the end of the day.

While Son was on the boat, my friend Janet and her daughter and I went to THE BEACH!  It was a HOT, heavenly day on the sand.  We stopped for breakfast before hitting the sand.  YUM!  Nothing like pancakes and bacon to start your day!

Here's our little spot on the beach.  We ended up moving back when the water chased us.

The view from my chair.

My beach buddy, Janet.  She is great!  I called to say, let's go and she showed up at my house before 7 to make sure Son got to the boat on time!  AND she didn't worry about hanging out at the beach ALL day until the boat came back in.  She's the best beach buddy!

We went back to the marina to get Son and as expected he chatted all about his day.  I think Janet and I tuned him out because at one point in the ride home, Janet realized that it was quiet in the backseat.  This is what we saw:

Tired Son!  I guess it was a great day!
