So Begins My Annual Pilgrimage to the Jersey Shore, Both Real and of Memory ...

Wendy on one of the long wooden walkways that extend from the sidewalk to the vast sandy beaches in Wildwood Crest, N.J., 11:46AM August 26, 2012 (nearly a year ago to the day).

I posted this picture and the other two below after last year's trip (link here).


OK, I'm heading out on my four-day Jersey shore (Wildwood) vacation via one night / part of one day in Rehoboth Beach (Delaware) with Gary, Wendy, LP.

The beach and the gurgling summer surf of the Atlantic Ocean at Wildwood Crest, N.J., 1:26PM August 26, 2012. I should be there on August 26, 2013 as well.

These Wildwood trips in recent years have been a sort of annual pilgrimage ... a hajj ... if you will, but only to the place, not the time of my Jersey shore childhood memory and legend, although truth to tell, that was many miles north in my old haunts of Long Branch and Sea Bright.

I'm unsure if I'll be able to update this blog at any point between now and Tuesday night / Wednesday.
