It’s that time of the year again, when families flock to the eastern seaboard for their annual beach vacation. From Maine to Florida, summer beach rentals are an American pastime which most families will try their hardest to avoid having to give up no matter how bad the economy gets. From lugging all the chairs, towels, umbrellas, shovels and coolers to the beach, to rubbing aloe on a crisp tan, everything about that vacation is priceless.
My favorite part of every summer my family spent at the Jersey shore in our vacation rental was always sitting out on the back porch with a table piled high with Blue Crabs. We would spend hours sitting around the table eating crabs and telling stories. When all was said and done, we would usually head to the boardwalk for a nice walk and to enjoy the scenery. Though the crabs are still available, getting the whole family around a table at the beach is proving to be a more difficult task as the years go by. This is what truly makes those summers at the beach a memory to cherish.
