I love the summer. And it’s not really summertime without a trip or two down to the Jersey shore. Obviously I enjoy the beach and the ocean, but I look forward to visiting the boardwalk just as much. It’s a mega food fest; pizza, crab cakes, fresh-squeezed lemonade, ice coffee, milkshakes, ice cream and salt water taffy…ahhhhh! Not to mention all the fun games and lovely shops. Oh, and rides, too! What’s not to like?

Wanna play a game? Launch a Lobster into the Pot!

Would ya lookit the size of that Big Ol’ Beer inflatable on the beach! I’ll meetcha at the Tiki Bar.

Okay, so it’s “picture overload” time, but I just couldn’t narrow it down. 😉

Today’s model is Sweet in Switzerland Poppy Parker. She is wearing a Barbie top, capris and flip-flops, all from around the “Fashion Fever”era. Her daisy hair clips came from a dollar store. The ice cream cone came in a set (vanilla, chocolate & strawberry) – I think I got it at Five Below in the toy section. The first shot on the boardwalk was taken in front of a new Lobster Pot game. It’s like “Frog Bog” without the splashing, LOL. The second picture was taken in front of a huge inflatable Bud Light bottle advertisement. And it works, because the Tiki Bar was not empty. 🙂 The next two photos are sand creations (Gator & Giant Sand Castle) made by Ed Jarrett. I was lucky enough to meet the artist and he even placed and posed Poppy next to his Gator himself! Last, but not least, Poppy poses in front of one of the many sweet shops on the boardwalk. Mmmmm!!!

Well, hubby went back to work today. Our vacation is over. 😦 But I still have some beach pictures left to share. 🙂 So, onto the photo…

Today’s model is a frankendollie: a Barbie Basics collection 002 model 04 head on a Fashionistas Barbie body. She is wearing a bathing suit from a Barbie Fashionistas fashion pack and Fashion Royalty earrings. The sandcastle was purchased in a gift shop in Point Pleasant. Her photo was taken in the afternoon on Wildwood beach in New Jersey.
