I am counting down the days until the warm weather arrives because then life changes here at the Jersey Shore.

Snow, potholes and winter jackets transform into bathing suits, beaches and booze!

One of my personal favorite Summertime activities is to indulge in a booze cruise. You've got water. You've got alcohol. You've got your friends. There really isn't a downside.
