This past weekend, we packed up our family and headed to Ocean City, New Jersey for a quick overnight getaway. It was a completely impromptu trip, but the best memories are made spur of the moment, right?
As much as I adore the beach, I’ve never actually headed there during the winter months! It was so neat to experience how quiet the normally bustling Ocean City beach was.
We spent the day walking the beach all bundled up, splashing in the surf and squealing when the chill hit our ankles, and adding to our growing collection of seashells.
The boardwalk was barren, the grasses on the dunes were a golden yellow rather than the soft green I am used to, but what remained the same was the feeling of peace and calm that being near the sea brings. What a wonderful way to begin the new year!
I just adore the beach and can see that same love for it in my girls. Today, I’m excited to share a few favorites moments from our family walk on the Ocean City beach. I hope you enjoy following along with our family’s memorable moments!
