Jersey Shore

July 25, 2011

I spent yesterday on the beach with the Skareckis. The water was warm and nice with fun little waves. We had a nice Cuban sandwich on the boardwalk for lunch and relaxed on the beach. Sunny Daze had a gig right on the boardwalk that evening. They are sounding great these days and they have three killer horns (trombone, tenor, alto). They have been writing a whole bunch of new tunes, but they threw me a couple of old familiar tunes so I could jam with them a bit. After the second set I had some yummy ribs and sweet potato fries on the boardwalk followed by a gigantic cookies and cream milkshake. We hung out and talked a while and then headed over to their main hangout, the Nip and Tuck, for their standard nightcap of chicken wings. I stayed over at Marc's new house in Fair Haven.

Now I'm down in Seaside Park with my family for the week. Should be a bunch of good relaxing and good eating.
