Down'a shore

Did you know that only babies use spoons? Me neither, but my grandmother called me a baby for using a spoon to eat my dinner the other night. So be it. She also said Courtney needed another beer last night.

Revelations of my infant tendencies aside, we've been having a good time here in Cape May, NJ. There have been a few good beach days, a couple of good stay-at-home days that allowed us to do some chores around my grandmother's house, and much eating. Much, much eating. Luckily, some of that eating has been seafood, a must anytime you're within smelling distance of the ocean.

We left Courtney's car in Delaware last week and took the ferry across the bay, and tomorrow we should be heading back across and stopping for another night with the grandparents in Maryland.

Shit. It's been about an hour since that last paragraph and we've changed our plans again. Maybe we're sticking around for a couple more beach days after all. Either way, it's dinner time again. Enjoy a few pictures.


Courtney the salty sea-dog.

Lobster, scallops, shrimp and beer. And Grandma.

It is the Garden State, after all. Friggin' flowers.

Where sand meets water. What's the big deal?

What--you didn't know that real men eat soup with a fork?

Now stop posting pictures of your life of leisure. You're making us all jealous. (OK, well you're making ME jealous...)

Awesome picture of Grandma, Mickey. I'm glad to see you're challenging yourself in some way.

Your grandma looks kind of pissed. Is it because you're eating seafood with a spoon again?

Allie said...

I do love the grandma/beer picture. Glad to hear you guys are having a great time!

Would you mind bringing some of that seafood and beach back with you? K, thx.

I wonder what your grandmother would think of if she saw a spork.

Chris said...

Heh, funny. I've never heard either of my grandmothers encourage anyone to have another beer.

And I'm confident that I never will.

Yay vacation! It looks so fun and calm!

So what exactly was it that you were eating with a spoon? That goes a long way between me mocking you or thinking you grandmother takes adulthood too seriously.

Somehow, the phrase "within smelling distance of the ocean" does not make me want to chow down on crustaceans. Oh wait. It passed. Now I'm ready to chow down on crustaceans, as per usual.
