A walk around the neighborhood.
I Love when the seasons change. The transition periods are the best...because when you're deep into any season it seems to get a bit too extreme in a given direction. But in the first weeks of spring turning into summer and then summer turning into fall...those are the perfect times. We took the pups for a walk around the neighborhood to enjoy the change. This is the time of year when it seems cooler inland, and a little warmer down by the ocean.
I've been meaning for a while now to take a stroll around town to take some pics of these big beautiful houses down the Jersey shore. Our town is really a summer town, so at this time of year everyone has already left until next year. And they leave behind these giant white Gatsby houses by the sea.
I don't think anyone lives in the house above. There are a few like that...some of the biggest, prettiest ones are empty. But then you'd be surprised sometimes and see one that looks like it hasn't been lived in for decades and then you'll see a car way back in the driveway, and lights on at night.
I love how in this pic little Jack is just walking past this ghoul who's climbing out of his grave. That kid is so jaded when it comes to zombies...we've let him watch too many movies.
This house below is actually directly on the ocean. If I were to swing my camera around, there would be the Atlantic staring back. And they've got a little putting green right there on the front lawn.
