Wildwood Crest

Wildwood Crest has fancy man-hole covers
My family has a place in Wildwood Crest this summer so I went down to visit for a few days. If it was up to me, it would have been Cape May, but Wildwood Crest turned out to be much better than I expected. I guess Wildwood Crest is the non-trashy Wildwood - although I was last in Wildwood twenty years ago, so maybe things are less trashy in the Wildwoods all around.

Wildwood survived Hurricane Sandy better than most parts of the Jersey Shore thanks no doubt to its really wide beaches. It takes forever to get from the street to the water's edge.

It's too bad my cell phone camera lens is so scratched up. It makes everything look foggy. But I'm not about to buy a whole new iPhone just for the camera.

I took this for the umbrella composition

Charming breakfast nook 

Party girl here got too much sun and too little sleep the night before and wound up with a killer headache and so had to bail out on my mom's birthday dinner. But at least Elvis showed up and my niece got a picture for Facebook.
