There is something really special about that first great weather day. Kids are riding their bikes, people are walking their dogs or working in the yard, or driving with the windows down. It's about time!

This is what I love the best about the Jersey Shore. Sunny days, spending time outdoors and seeing your neighbors for longer than the minute they're running out to warm up their car or scrape the windshields.

I want to get to the beach and soak it all in like I never have before. I don't want to take one gentle wave, the sound of one seagull, or the laughing  of one child for granted. Living at the Jersey Shore is a gift and we should appreciate it each day.

I know the temperatures aren't going to stay like this just yet, but that's ok. i'm going to enjoy it. It's nice to hear a forecast we can be happy about for a change.
