Manasquan, NJ

I get up now, about the time I used to go to bed……JB

Yes, girls and boys, this next picture is of a sunRISE.  My husband is obsessed with getting up at the crack of dawn.  We were up this morning at 5:00, and were pulling up anchor and getting underway by 5:30.  Coffee was made and cereal was eaten.

The egrets were having breakfast as we passed thru that narrow inlet going back out to sea.

Well, I have to let you know that today was a red letter day.  Tom actually let me drive the boat while he took a nap.  I know, I know, he shouldn’t have gotten up so early.  Anyway.  Dad and I were up on the fly bridge having a gay old time.  He only slept an hour and a half, but I felt like Jack Sparrow, manning my own ship!!!! Entering Manasquan was a worry because of breaking surf and a 4 knot current but we made it in safely to Hoffmans Marina.  We spent two days there waiting on better weather.  The facilities were awesome with new showers and rest rooms.
