I Love NJ

NJ is at the wrong end of many jokes, and I (kind of) get it.  Between the Sopranos and Jersey Shore, the state has had some pretty bad advertising.  Still, I love my home state.
   
Today was a great day.  Mom and I went to the beach, and this was our view...
     
   
Then we went to dinner, and we started with...
   
   
Followed by...
    
   
Which looked like this by the time I was done...
    
   
All while sitting on the water here...
   
  
Yeah, I love NJ... poke fun all you want. 
   
I am happy to report that I was able to eat the clams on the half shell and the lobster.  I had to chew the lobster tail nearly to death (I think I counted about 50 chews for some bites), but it was well worth the effort. 
    
In other news, I saw Dr. K yesterday.  I have lost 9 lbs this month, so no need for a fill:)

Nora, I agree completely! We vacation on ( the less crowded/commercial parts of) the Jersey Shore every summer...and we love Jersey beaches, farm stand bounty, and people! Of course, we're originally from NYC and--though not living there now--so we're kissing cousins of Jersey folks :-)

I have worked in NJ numerous time ( Willingboro(yes I said Willingboro) and New Brunswick) and have enjoyed the state< due to work very little. I was unable to visit the shore and by the looks of your picture I missed a great part of NJ. I do love seafood however I havent tried much except fish since my surgery so you do give me some hope. I dont think I will be able to handle my fav which are oysters as they are nasty chewed...... oh well.
Congrats on the weight loss. I am so happy for you......

Enjoy

Great job on 9 lbs!!

That food looks fantastic! I love fresh seafood and I love coastal areas. I grew up in SC and miss the ocean the somethin' terrible. Gotta get back that way someday...

That lobster looks awesome, but I have a hard time eating it these days. Congrats on the 9 lbs...
