This weekend we traveled to New Jersey for a family event. We decided to take an extra day and check out an attraction that I had missed during my many years living in the Garden State. Just south of Atlantic City there is a small beach town called Margate where Lucy the Elephant lives. Lucy is a building shaped like an elephant built 130 years ago. She has a fascinating history that you can read about on her web site. She sits right near the beach in a little fenced in area all her own. You can take a tour of the inside for $7 each or just look around the outside for free. There is a little gift shop and a grill next door. You can climb up onto her howdah and get a nice view of the area. I had a great time taking in this little piece of beach history.
Once we tired of that we made our way back to my sisters house for a Memorial Day cook out and then back to the hotel to crash. So today I'm catching up once again with the usual: unpacking, laundry, fill the bird feeders, water the plants and prepare for our next adventure coming up in just two weeks!
