I think we picked the worst week weather-wise to be on a stay-cation. It rained 90% of the week, but we did manage to get out and enjoy one little day of sun.
We took a ride down to Barnegat Lighthouse, which is pretty close to wear we live. It’s something we like to do at least once a year, especially post-Labor Day, AKA “Local Summer.”
While I skipped the beach this year due to COVID, I utilized my little watermelon pool instead, I missed being down near the ocean. I was hoping to get a nice beach day in this week, but it just didn’t work out and that’s OK.
If you’re taking a trip to Barnegat Light, though, be prepared to wear masks while you’re in the park. The lighthouse itself is closed, as well as bathrooms and the visitor center. We still had a nice day out in the park, and it was easy for us to social distance because we stayed away from the pathways.
I try not to take for granted that I have so many beautiful and special places like this so close to home. It’s such a nice place to recalibrate and take in some beautiful Jersey Shore scenery and salty air.
