The Best of the New Jersey Shore - The Power of the Porch.

When one thinks of the Jersey Shore, it is usually the beach and the boardwalk.  One of the best places to be at the Shore is on one of the wide wrap-around verandas/porches that you see on most homes.  A quiet moment in a rocking chair or in the hammock can just melt the stress away.  It is hard to explain, but the power of those quiet places with gentle breezes can do wonders to relax the body and soothe the soul.

Our bed and breakfast has one of the greatest porches anywhere.  It sits up one story so the breezes are wonderful.  It wraps around two full sides of the Inn with rocking chairs, a double swing, and a double hammock.  As you sit back, you can watch the world go by.  You can look out on Central Avenue with the beautiful islands of flowers or view the rose bed in our yard.  Curl up with a book in the hammock or just take a nap.

This special place is where life slows down just a little.  Whether for a few minutes or a few hours, it is a must at the Shore.    So pack your bathing suit and suntan lotion -- just do not forget the "power of the porch" and enjoy some quiet time during your next trip to the Shore.
