A few days ago, Little Brown Pen posted about Pier Village in Long Branch. We live about 15 minutes away, so when we were looking for a beach to head to for the 4th today, we decided to go there. We had a great, chilled out lunch at Sirena and then hit the beach. Next time I would love to try the beach club at Avenue, but for today we were happy as clams with the crowds on the beach.

Look at all that sunshine; it makes for a happy Adam. We didn’t know what to do after the month of rain that was June.

4th of july crowds

Even the most serene beach is overrun on the 4th. That’s half the fun!
