A Beachy Weekend

I posted on instagram that my brother was in town.  On Tuesday he moves overseas so it was nice to see him before then.

We decided to head to Belmar Beach.  It’s hard to believe it’s the first time I went to the beach without a road race!

We hung out at the Beach and tried to remove spandex tan lines.  I used to lifeguard through high school and college so it’s always strange for me to go to the beach.  I feel like I’m constantly on my toes watching people.

Plus I don’t like to “just lay at the beach” so after 5 minutes I’m wondering what we will do next!

We also got homemade ice cream at a small stand on the boardwalk.  I always go for cake batter ice cream.  Cake batter cream+whipped cream+cherries is the key to my ice-cream heart.

It was a great weekend and I was glad to see Matt before he leaves!

Questions for you:

Fellow lifeguards (or ex lifeguards), do you feel like you are constantly watching people when near a body of water?

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?
