When you only have one week off from school, you better make the most of it. I couldn't think of a better way to spend it than on the beach with one of my best friends. Not only was the ocean right in our backyard, we could ride bikes 10 minutes in one direction and we were at Belmont Park, and if we went the other direction, there were tons of great places to shop at (I'm pretty sure Jaycie and I went shopping every day we were there). Would you believe it gets better than that? Better Buzzed Coffee (only the best coffee shop I have ever been to) was a five minute walk right behind the house. As soon as we woke up, that was always our first stop. It was so much fun to ride bikes, and go to the beach, and shop, and just relax and take a break from school. I'm just happy that I was able to squeeze all of the new clothes that I bought into my suitcase for the ride back home.
