Pictures from our "mini-vacation"

I took a ton of pictures in the past few days. They're are about ten of them - enjoy!

Dave bought a rocket a while back at a hobby store down in Red Bank. We shot it off last time we were here too, and thought it would be cool to shoot it again. I'm not sure how I got this picture, but he's thrilled!!

We went to the aquarium in Point Pleasant.

Kinda blurry, but me kissing the puffer fishy.

The moray eel.

Dave at the photo op.

Me by a fish.

Dave and I on the beach right off the boardwalk by the aquarium.

Me walking along the beach looking for sea glass. We found a lot. I picked up a shell and a cool piece of drift wood and we put in all the sea glass we found. It is now a cute decoration in my downstairs bathroom down here, and it has meaning as a token of our trip!

Me and Dave on the beach together.

I got this clock from Pottery Barn from my mom. Dave helped me hang it on the wall/banister that hangs over the second floor from the third floor. It was so hard to hang cause it is really heavy, but it is up now and looks great! I love it!!

That's all for now.

Cute pix, thanks for sharing! Your condo looks great, I love that color on your walls. I'm not sure what sea glass is -- Like, shells? I want to see a picture of the decoration :)

Amy, I also posted this on your lj:

Sea glass is glass (pollution basically) from bottles that have made their way into the ocean. It is most common to find brown, and green is pretty easy to find too. There is a lot of white I guess, but it blends. Blue is pretty rare.
As the waves churn, all the shells (and glass bottles) hit the sand and break - but as they get churned repeatedly, the sand smooths the edges of the glass pieces and they aren't sharp, and the color becomes sorta foggy. While Dave and I were on the beach we also found a really neat delft blue and white plate that has been turned into sea glass, and you can see the plate design still. It is very cool. We found a lot of brown and green, and I found three pieces of blue. One of the blue pieces is sooooo tiny, but it is still blue sea glass!!
