For the holiday weekend we went to Rohobeth with a bunch of FI's friends. We rented a house about 3 blocks from the beach and were able to spend 3 days at the shore.
We all got in Saturday afternoon and went out for dinner at Claws Crab House. We got 2 dozen crabs for 4 of us. They were super delicious and full of meat and we got all supremely messy banging on the crabs with mallets.We spent all day Sunday and Monday hanging out at the beach and on the boardwalk. We sampled Boardwalk fries, frozen custard, burgers, and fish & chips. Five of us even played the "roll the ball to make your horse race" game. There were 11 of us playing and I WON! I got a stuffed horse about 8 inches long that I stowed in our friends' son's stroller as we wandered the boardwalk.
Here's where he discovers the ipod. It was really cute. He knew what to do with the earphones too.
Our friend decided to use the boogie board as a prop and create a sand sculpture.
Here's the finished work. People kept stopping by and taking pictures. Yes, there are 4 arms on the lady. We don't know why. He doesn't know why either. I just called it a Hindu goddess.
Besides lunches on the boardwalk and our crab dinner, we cooked our own meals. One friend made incredible ribs on Sunday night. She slow cooked them in the oven for 4 hours and the meat was so tender, it was falling off the bones and you could cut it with a butter knife. FI and I made blueberry pancakes for Sunday breakfast. That's one of our usual weekend activities so it was nice to make them for everyone. He also grilled hot dogs for everyone on Monday night before we drove back to NYC.
A very relaxing weekend!
