Early this morning I received a phone call from my good friend Jeneen who was wondering if my daughter and I wanted to join her at the beach in Avon By The Sea,NJ.
Ironically, Avon is where my family summered when my mother was a child.
Originally from Brooklyn, my grandmother and her sister Eleanor were the only two who lived at the New Jersey shore.
Her sisters and their families (my Nanny was the baby of 14!!!) would rent homes in Avon to escape the city for the summer.
We jumped at the chance to go!
Avon is such a quaint shore town...my daughter and I drove up Route 71 so we could pass through all the seaside towns like Spring Lake, Belmar, and Lake Como.
It was an amazing day, spent with one of my favorite people!
I just love all the adorable beach cottages with their awnings!
It is almost too dangerous to drive up and down the streets because you can't help but stare at every single home!
Thanks Jeneen for such a wonderful day!
