Close to home with Mary Beth Breckenridge

Sand, surf and shore houses!

By Mary Beth Breckenridge Published: July 28, 2014
Stunning gardens line the sidewalk in front of The Gables, an inn and restaurant in Beach Haven, N.J. You can't tell from the picture, but the street is immediately to the right. What a great use of a mere sliver of space.

My tan has faded, but my memories of a week on the Jersey Shore have not.

My longtime readers know that I've been vacationing on Long Beach Island, N.J., with my extended family for more than 40 years. I spent a week there earlier this month and am just now getting used to reality after seven days of sunning, overeating and gossiping with my cousins. 

Every morning my husband and I took a bike ride (me on the fab pink coaster bike I rented), and this year I shot photos along the way of things that caught my eye, most of them related to home design and gardening.

So put on your flipflops, grab a glass of lemonade and enjoy.
