By The Seaside ~ By The Beautiful Sea!


It seems we begin counting down to our next seaside vacation on the day we return from the present one.  We've been vacationing in Ocean City, Maryland since 2002 and it's allure has not diminished.
Having been raised only 20 minutes from Jones Beach, Long Island, I know the sea is a great part of who I am, even at 9 months....

My love for the beach and ocean just kept growing, as did I....

This summer was no different.  We continued to share our beach time with dear friends....




Fun things kept us occupied....

Annual Girlfriend Gift Swap ~

A trip to see our beloved NY Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles....


Batting practice and the star of our hearts ~ Derek Jeter
Meeting up with a great new friend from the old 'hood ~ Lou
A Boardwalk henna tat!
Serious seafood dining nightly




A night at the races.....

Kiki picked this winner!

Time to relax....
Under the bluest of skies....


 Or kicking back in the condo....

 The three girls let us know they were really on vacation....





They had more important things to do than housekeeping....



Time does fly when you're having fun ~ our last night at one of our favorites ~ Harborside....














And so the dawn comes and another seaside getaway ends.....until next year!!



Today we welcome in September and pay homage to all who labor....I've been laboring this past month as well and there are new treasures in the Boutique!
I hope your month has been glorious and the days ahead promising.

I'm gearing up for some pretty big things this month ~ Tucson' Fall Gem Show, a much anticipated "Valley Girls Getaway" to LA, and a hip replacement.

I'm sure the next edition of Karen's Monday Musings will be chock full of news, so stayed tuned!
Enjoy these days ahead, and thank you so much for visiting with me!
