My in-laws go to the seashore each September for 2 weeks with the Bowe household out of New Jersey. The adults are all right here for 2 weeks, and the children (who at the moment are adults too, haha) often come for the center weekend. It’s all the time nice to catch up and benefit from the seashore when the crowds have waned.
