adventures in weekending: flea bargains and my first day at the beach this year

First, an early morning stop at the flea market in Englishtown, NJ, where I picked up Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (for only 99 cents!), a super-cute tube top and summer fruits.

This is the most massive flea market I’ve seen. Row after row after row of kitschy trinkets, ’80s toys, cheap clothes and even some collectible swords!  It’s nearly impossible to see everything in one day (although the oppressive heat might have taken a role in our exhaustion).
Later, Bob and I went to my favorite beach spot within driving distance, Point Pleasant, for a sunset dinner, laying out and a competitive game of rooftop mini-golf (just wait until you see me play air hockey–I turn into a frat boy).
Freshly-made fish ‘n chips is one of my favorite comfort foods.

Bob trying to fight off the beach flies (with my shoe). Those things sting like crazy!

Mini golf is a game I’m sure to lose.  But that doesn’t stop me from trying, even if it does take a hole-in-7!

How’s your week going so far?  I have this feeling that it’s going to fly by…probably because I have a work deadline that I’m struggling to keep!
