Ventnor got a Dunkin’! Still saltier than the ocean that they took away the Ventnor Heights Wawa but this will have to do (for now — don't think I've given up on getting Wawa back).
Josie Kelly's Public House in Somers Point, NJ
Went to Ireland in 2016 and when I walk into this Somers Point bar I forget that I ever left.
What's better than having a beer with your name on it at the end of a long day? Having a beer that literally has your name on it while listening to an audiobook in a warm bath at the end of a long day. Y'all know I had to make my way to Belmar to try the der Schicki Micki from Beach Haus. It can't be a coincidence that the can bears my name and everything about it (color, style, taste) is so me, right?
When your little cousin asks you to go trick-or-treating, you put on a damn costume and trick adults into giving you treats even though you're an adult yourself.
Mission Taqueria in Philadelphia, PA
Have I mentioned that I like margaritas?? Took an impromptu drive to Philly in search of a special necklace to replace one that I bought in Greece and lost in New Jersey. Didn't find the necklace but did fill my belly with tacos.
10th Ave Burrito in Belmar, NJ
So, when I put a camper together, can I have an accent wall like this? Also, bottomless margs would be nice. A girl can dream, right?
It's almost November which means it's too cold for me to hit the beach in a bikini but it's the perfect weather for my 13-year-old pup to run around in the sand and water.
The Lobster House in Cape May, NJ
If you go to a tourist trap during the off-season, are you still a shoobie? Tourist trap or not, The Lobster House has some incredible seafood and scenery to match. As you can see, I'm holding on to the very last of the warmer weather as long as I can!
2018 Fall RV Show in Wildwood, NJ
Toying with the idea of buying a small camper and touring the U.S. Went to the Fall RV Show in Wildwood to get an idea of what my Jeep Wrangler can tow (not much). My goal, should I choose to accept it, is to get on the road by the end of next year
Somers Point, NJ
I'm normally a dog person but I've spent the week cat-sitting and these little ones are starting to grow on me (even though they stick their paws in my tea).
Argyle Brewing Company in Greenwich, NY
Couldn't go on a trip without hitting up at least one local brewery. Though we stayed in Argyle, it's a dry town, so we trekked a bit south to Greenwich for Argyle Brewing Company on our way back to NJ.
Buck Mountain Trail, NY
Brought the Pinelands to the Adirondacks. Views from a 7-mile hike that made my legs indescribably sore, but so worth it! This time of year, the trees are usually full of color. But since Fall made a late appearance this year, the trees are just starting to change. Gorgeous nonetheless!
