We Went To The Beach

At the end of September. And it was wonderful! For antisocial, non-sun lovers, laid back people like we are. Benefits of off season beach visits include: waaaaay lower prices on amazing beachfront condo rentals, empty restaurants which require no reservations or wait time, empty indoor swimming pools for hours of family fun, and cozy nights spent inside playing cards and watching Thursday Night Football. This year my mom joined us as well as my best friend Marian. And here are way too many photos of our fun time. : )

(Clearly, I still get bored on long car rides.)
Thanks for the memories, Ocean City!
See you next year.



  1. September is my favorite month for the beach!! Love the photos!!

  2. Such a great idea to go in the off season. Looks like a lot more fun too - not too hot, besides all the great deal. Great photos of a lovely family. :)

  3. The beach has always been a magical place for me, glad you all had fun :)
    Love the pictures
    -hugs from Hayley

  4. The condo looked beautiful and of course the beach did as well! It's so nice to getaway especially when you get the beach to yourself!!

  5. Your condo looks amazing! Beach front!! You know my love for the ocean maybe next time I should join you. :) I am so happy you had a wonderful time!

  6. Looks like a great weekend! I miss being so close to the beach!!! Great family pictures :-)


  7. Off season vacations are my jam too!! It looks like you had a stellar time.

  8. Off season is the only way to go, looks like a great family holiday.

  9. Beautiful...I just love the photos of your Mom, Billie Jo. Thanks for sharing. Blessings

  10. Oh wow -- what a wonderful trip and photos! LOVE the beach -- Ocean City, NJ? Hope you have a fun weekend!

  11. What a great place to stay! Looks like the perfect week at the beach!

  12. Best time to go to the beach! Looks great! I'm so happy for you.

  13. I love the ocean! Your son is as tall as your daughter! Growing up! Special times together as a family. What a blessing.

  14. Well, you KNOW I love the beach!! (and we go to Texas off season too for the same reasons, it's quiet, cheaper and relaxing)

    Your son and mine could share a wardrobe...they dress exactly the same!

    I loved all your pictures! And how special to be able to bring your mama! (and your friend)

    I hope you got a little time alone with your husband!
    So happy you were able to get away again this year!

  15. Billie Jo, I am missing your sweet presence so much on IG but I am grateful to follow you on your blog! What sweet memories you all created at the beach ❤️ With love, Brooks Cade

  16. Hi Billie Jo!

    You have a beautiful family, and I think it's wonderful that you had your mom and friend go with you - the more the merrier!! I love the ocean, everything about makes me smile! So glad you had a good time!


  17. It looks as though you had a great time!! We don't go on holiday in the main summer either, we prefer slightly off season too! So glad you enjoyed it! xx

  18. I'd want to stay!
    Blessings from Harvest Lane Cottage,


Thanks so much for saying hello!
