I’ve been in love with Wildwood my entire life…it’s an island in itself, a five-mile island of wonderfulness. It stretches from North Wildwood, through Wildwood, and down to Wildwood Crest (where I am). The Crest is far-removed from the noise and bustle of the rest of the island, where there is a larger concentration [...]
I’ve told you about the boardwalk on more than one occasion but it occurred to me that I have yet to delve into the world of carnival games. And I feel like I must share this with you because it’s making me CRAZY.
For starters, there’s one game (or pair of games, rather) where [...]
As I sat on the beach today, reading my little heart out, little did I know that a girl had fallen from the Wildwood Ferris Wheel, just 30-some blocks away, on the boardwalk.
The lead story on the news today took us by surprise — shock, really — when we saw witnesses and police [...]
It was a tad too hot to sit on the beach directly in the path of the sun today, so W and I headed to good old Cape May, which is all of about 8 minutes from Wildwood Crest. There are all sorts of wonderful things to see and do in Cape May…but one [...]
So, here I am, roughly one week into my Summer of Kristin and my resolution that not even vacation would deter me from my goal. Did I do it? Well, I stuck to my plan, other than a few, isolated stumbles. I spent Memorial Day weekend with W, my brother, and [...]
The most well-known “sight” in Wildwood is its two-mile (all 38 blocks of it) boardwalk. And, the most well-known “sound” is, “Watch the tram car, please.” The tram car runs the length of the boardwalk and is $2.50 for a one-way ride.
On the boardwalk, you can get cheap (as in not well-made…they’re [...]
It was actually kinda hot by about 9 a.m., so after I had breakfast and got everything ready (picking a bathing suit, packing a bag, applying SPF 50…yes, 50), I strolled down to the beach. I was there by about 10:30. There was a heck of a breeze (OK, wind) down there, the entire time [...]
As Week 5 drew to a close, I had arrived in Wildwood to kick off the Summer of Kristin. Luckily, as this is a solo venture (except for weekends), I have little to no temptation to go out to eat or to make poor food choices, since my seaside abode is stocked with only [...]
I love the beach.
So, this morning, when my head popped up at…6:53 a.m., I was happy to see that it was because of all the glorious natural light illuminating my little seaside abode. This is the source…
I know, right? And, as I sat here this morning, reading e-mail, this was the [...]
As you probably have realized, I live in Philadelphia. Well, to be clear, I live in a suburb of Philadelphia, which is about 10 minutes from the City of Brotherly Love. However, to those who are outside the tri-state area, when asked where I’m from, the answer is simple: Philly.
A big part of [...]
