June 23 - Shore trip

Saturday we arrived at Ocean City, NJ for our annual pilgrimage to the coast.  I grabbed this shot with my cell phone on the back porch at about 8:00 pm.  The sea was calm and pleasant.  The only sound was the pound of the surf and the occasional gull.

Inside the house was a completely different story.  Everyone bustling about, unpacking, finding a place for things, and enthusing about the week's vacation.  Six adults and five teenagers can raise the decibel level quite a bit during this project.  It's good to be surrounded by family, but it's also nice to have a quiet place to slip away to for five minutes.

Walking through the patio door I am right back in the fray.
