Place – Ocean City & Strathmere N.J./Post Hurricane Sandy


December 1st dawned with the weather unseasonably warm, a perfect day to visit Ocean City, New Jersey. The day was sunny with fluffy white clouds in the sky, quite the departure from the grey skies of Hurricane Sandy. As you can see in the picture above, there are still a few storefronts boarded up. We didn’t see any damage in Ocean City. The beaches seem to be intact, and the boardwalk undamaged.


We stopped at our favorite pizza place, we think it is the best pizza in the world. Manco and Manco, in the past better known as Mac and Manco, can’t be beat for delicious boardwalk style pizza.



It was fun to see Santa Claus arrive and climb into his boat, ready to listen to Christmas wishes from the children.



We both left feeling good about one of our favorite places in the world. Our next stop was Strathmere…our favorite beach to visit. The town lies next door to Ocean City, but is more rustic, no boardwalk and very small. The perfect place  for a quiet family outing in the summertime. We were thrilled to see although the beach had a bit of erosion on the point, for the most part the town fared well too.




Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
