A Friday Beach Day at Long Beach Island (on the North side)

Nums and I took last Friday off so that we could take the whole family down to Long Beach Island for the day. Similar to last summer, we met up with my sister-in-law Anju and her family for the day.

After grabbing a bite to eat and filling up the gas tank, we drove the NJ back roads through the Pine Barrens to get to LBI. Much later than planned, but what can you do sometimes. My sister-in-law and family were staying on the northern end of the island. Call me ignorant, but I had no idea there was a northern end. Specifically, I thought we always arrived at LBI at one end and drove down. It seems there is a whole other unexplored-by-Ipes section.

It’s a quieter area, but still nice. We found their beach hotel or whatever for the week and met Anju there, then walked to a little beach tram stop. The dune buggy tram pulling a wagon took us to where they were camped out.

We spent the afternoon out in the sun, but I found the water a little cold. We packed up and headed out to the beach hotel at the end of the day to shower and freshen up. We made dinner reservations for an island restaurant called…. Plantation. Excellent food and service. I highly recommend the place.
