youthful indiscretions

Wildwood, New Jersey.

Jenn and I made our first voyage out to the Jersey Shore from Philadelphia this past weekend, which also happened to be Memorial Day Weekend.

We had been warned that Wildwood could be trashy, and moments on the boardwalk did feel like Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but overall it was a blast — and very affordable (free public beach access everywhere, unlike the majority of NJ beaches, and also free parking). We didn’t have a chance to ride any of the rollercoasters yet, but the season has only just begun.
