To the Shore and Back Again

April 2, 2011

in sandwich, soup/stew, travel

I don’t think I’ve mentioned this, but the reason for our quick trip east is Abe’s grandmother, who passed away in January. The official services are tomorrow, but today a small group of us piled into a rental van for a little memorial in Beach Haven, NJ (where she often vacationed)

Appropriate music from her time on satellite radio!

My breakfast:

The clouds parted and the sun shone down right as we were on the beach!

Afterwards we had lunch around 2:30 at nearby Buckalews

Dinner reservations at 7:30 so I ordered just a soup (Manhattan Clam Chowder)…

…knowing full well I’d be stealing bites. Some of Abe’s Portabello, Veggie, and Cheese

and David’s crab cake sandwich (too salty)

A whole bunch of fried foods! Half of these surprisingly yummy french fries

And a couple reeeeeally long sweet potato ones

My favorite were these Toasted Onion Battered Green Beans

I filled up on a few too many of those, with Ranch and Sweet Soy dipping sauce.

On the drive back we quickly stopped by Evergreen Dairy Bar for soft serve

Just a taste

Now we’re off to dinner! I’m still full so I’m sure I’ll just wind up eating off of everyone’s plates again…
