Ocean City, NJ, MORNING ON THE BEACH
Of course Jersey shore vacations on our island include time on the Ocean City beach. Scarborough Inn B&B guests are among those who flock to the seashore to laze on the sand, swim in the refreshing Atlantic Ocean, enjoy a "beach read," and snack on Mack & Manco's pizza, Knorr's frozen custard, Johnson's caramel popcorn, and Shriver's salt water taffy.
And why not? It's vacation time in "America's Greatest Family Resort" and Scarborough Inn accommodations are just a block and a half from the beach.
But don't miss an early morning visit to the Ocean City beaches. It's a different experience...
...the sun rises in the East, gilding the waves with golden light
...the only footprints on the sand are from yesterday's beach goers
...Life Guard Stands are empty, awaiting their occupants
...seabirds wade along the water's edge
...Atlantic Ocean waves roll, and crash, and then lap the shoreline
...breathe in the salty air; breathe
