Interior Los Amigos Restaurant, Atlantic City, New Jersey

Once the summer muggies descend on our hometown, Philadelphia, we head “down the shore” to the house we bought in Brigantine, on the first barrier island north of Atlantic City, New Jersey. When we brilliantly bought the house right before the 2008 real estate collapse caused by the financial crisis, our then 20-something sons incredulously asked […]

Zentangle Diva’s Challenge #223 – We All Scream for Ice Cream Edition

June 22, 2015 29 comments

This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use the tangle Umble by Maria Thomas of the Zentangle Mother Ship in a composition. I was a little over ambitious in terms of how much time mine would take and Mr. Excitement is chomping at the bit to go for a walk on the beach here […]

Lifesaving boat on Brigantine Beach, New Jersey

August 14, 2013 69 comments

We raised our sons in a leafy green suburb of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The houses had lawns, but no lawn ornaments, except for perhaps dueling candidate signs during elections. In the arc of my Baby Boomer life, I’m not sure exactly when I stopped seeing politically incorrect and/or cheesy statues on people’s front lawns, but it […]

And the Rockets’ Red Glare….

July 23, 2013 52 comments

My husband, Steve (a/k/a Mr. Excitement), and I are “empty nester” Baby Boomers.  We’ve been together (as a couple) for 32 years, most of them with our noses to the proverbial grindstone  — actually, usually, several grindstones concurrently. Our roles as lawyer/physician-scientist/parents/caretakers left little time (nor energy) for much self expression. Over the last few […]

Seriously Smitten by Sunsets in Brigantine, New Jersey (A Photo Essay Mostly)

Sunset over Saint George's Thoroughfare Bay, Brigantine, New Jersey

Although New Jersey is blessed with approximately 130 miles of wide, sandy ocean beaches, New Jersey is on the east coast of the United States, so its ocean beaches are generally not good places from which to watch the sun set over the water — what with the sun setting in the west and all. […]
