Enjoying Vacation Week Locally

As my vacation week comes to a close
I have enjoyed just doing local activities:

Monday:  car repair &  pedi

Auntie and I went for a pedi
Tuesday  - hair cut & cleaning the house
Wednesday - Liz Curtis Higgs
Ladies Day at Americas Keswick with Aunt Rose & Michelle.
She is so funny and it was wonderful.
Did a little shopping and found a great buy.
My deal of the week: Price $ 49.99 ~ found in Kohl's junk isle.
Sale Price: $ 14.99 - coupon $ 10.00 = my cost $ 5.34 including tax.

Savings $ 45.00 ~
Cooking a special meal for hubby ~ he gave it two thumbs up.
Chicken with Thyme, Peas & Mushrooms
Red Skin Potatoes with Thyme
Water melon for dessert.
Hubby stayed home from work and spent the day with me
We tried a new restaurant to us in Sea Bright NJ.
Alice's Kitchen.
Sea Bright was destroyed by hurricane Sandy so it was
nice to see a restaurant open.
It is an Irish breakfast place.
Hubby and I both had delicious oatmeal and Irish Soda Bread.
It's very cute inside.
Then we took a drive to Sandy Hook.
US Army - Fort Hancock.
The beach was so very quiet.
We visited the lighthouse.

Breakfast at our local diner then we
decided to walk our town of Red Bank.

It sits right on the Navesink River and is really lovely.
When I was growing up the town almost died when the local
mall opened up.  People preferred to shop at the mall where
it was warm and dry and not to shop in the local town.
But it has since been restored and a favorite of the locals.

Red Bank is home of Soul Kitchen ~ the restaurant
owned by Jon Bon Jovi.
