Thursday Favorite Things and Friday Fragments..Jersey Shore Memories…



Since Hurricane Sandy took away our favorite beach on Monday I thought I would post some of my favorite memories of Strathmere, New Jersey to hold me over til it can be restored…

I am thankful for all the past memories and the ones to come. My thoughts and prayers are with those that lost much more than sand…
