Bday Post #3
Spent most of the day Friday the 21st working on things for the event up there. Going nuts!
Took a sanity break and headed down to Seaside Heights. My friends hadn't been in over a year and had wanted to see what had and hasn't been rebuilt, plus check out their old shore home, which was alive and well thankfully. There were still a lot of homes and buildings that were marked as uninhabitable an the boardwalk had to be lit by massive flood lights as without the rides up, even the moon wasn't enough to help illuminate the boardwalk.
I tried winning one of those minions from Despicable Me, but failed. Did however eat a ton of food - pizza, cheesy curly fries, a lemonade and ice cream. Yum!
I wanted to be a dork and see the Shore Store and once you got there, it was the end of the boardwalk and a blockade prevented you from going further. Weird to see. There were people strolling along the beach and I finally got to see Karma and Bamboo...Karma was literally dead, but Bamboo is HUGE and quite alive. I now want to go!
