A bunch of girlfriends just wanted to get away and pretend it was summer. I wish I had the time to travel far, but as any of you moms know getting away is almost impossible. We all decided to stay on the Jersey Shore because I wanted to go eat at Clementines in Avon (favorite restaurant in Jersey). So we did a little research and found Ocean House. I called some of the other hotels but got recordings, or too expensive, said they were in Spring Lake but really up on a highway etc. So about 6 of us went down, had a blast, went out in Asbury to a great new bar Watermark then skeeball at Johnny Macs, then came back to the Ocean House where it was basically like staying at one of our friends really massive homes! The entire hotel is very clean, quaint, staff is very friendly (even upgraded us to a bigger bed cause I'm so tall!) the breakfast was amazing! I asked why they weren't open for food all the time because it was so good, but he said they only serve guests as of now. (The girl cooking should open her own place). I have to say the whole weekend was great, even had an amazing cab driver "Johnny Babes", what a character that guy is! Only wish it was warm enough for the beach, guess we'll go back. Have to say though the Jersey Shore is nothing like that stupid show if you go down there. I said that to a local but she told me to please keep that to myself because they like it just the way it is now.
