Waiting for Brown's Donuts

a early morning line forms outside of Browns donuts

On of the great things about family resort towns is that there are traditions that never change. Some thing never change.

My mom and I headed to Brown's donuts on the northern end of the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ around 7am to get donuts.

When we got there at 7:05, this line had already formed waiting for Browns to open.

We talked to the people in line and basically just enjoyed the weather.

It was worth the wait! There is nothing like eating a Brown's chocolate glazed donut.

Afternoon at Ocean City Beach

Umbrellas at the Ocean City Beach in New Jersey

During my vacation, the weather was hot. As a matter of fact, it was the hottest day of the summer in Ocean City when I was there.

Some brave, or maybe crazy, people were at the beach hunkered down with their umbrellas. I thought with the parasailer, it was a pretty cool (in the vibe sense) scene.

I pulled over my bike and snapped a pic. You have to love compact digital cameras.

There is something very peaceful about the ocean in the morning. I love how everything seems to have taken on a blue cast from the morning light.

This photo is of the row boat at the life guard station. They don't have it at all the stations, but they are sprinkled down the beach at different points.

They keep the beaches in Ocean City very well groomed, so it makes the early morning adventures really enjoyable because you don't see any liter on the beach from the day before.

I took this pic when I was on vacation in Ocean City, NJ. I got up early on my last day and wandered down to the beach to take some pics

This one of the lifeguard stand makes me want to go back.

Kicking It Old School at Westide Market

I love going to the West Side Market in Ohio City. Besides being a great place to shop, it is a great place to people watch. This Saturday was no exception.

I didn't take my camera because I had headed out early to bet the crowd. If you want to get the best stuff and do serious shopping, the earlier the better.

I was so glad my cell phone had a camera because I would have hated to miss this guy.
