Have you ever wondered why Long Beach Island has giant clams at local businesses along the boulevard? They have been a quirky, fun part of the landscape for quite a while now. They are part of the ReClam the Bay movement. This nonprofit organization helps to maintain the vitality of Barnegat Bay. Here is a link to many of the colorful clams you will see on the island. The girls and I came across this one last week.
It was painted by Cathleen Engelsen, a historical artist.
Its flu shot time! Of course I don’t have the time to make a doctor’s appointment and wait a week to get in to get my flu shot. What would we do without Target?
Here is the bad news. I am taking a little time off of running. Hopefully very little because I have a 5k this weekend. But ignoring an injury is not the answer, which my friends have been kind enough to remind me. I am likely to get seriously grumpy this week! But I will focus on cross training as much as I can and hopefully be back soon. “Arms Crossed.” (That’s for you, Eileen!) Here are my last two disappointing runs before I knew I needed to stop.
I saw this and laughed so hard. It is so true. And a bit crazy. But I have to admit I am guilty of the before and after. Actually, I probably had my Walkman in 1994!
Here are some more fun pictures from Dane’s birthday.
And my other two cuties.
So, I am wondering, do you get a flu shot?
