The six days we were at the Jersey shore were a mixed weather bag. One day was a complete washout, and one day was too cold for me to go swimming (my son thought it was OK, though, and went surfing). Still, I just love the beach. Even on the worst weather day, we sat on the porch and just spent the whole day watching the ocean. There was also a very active pod of dolphins hanging out. They went body surfing, jumped clear of the water, banged their tail fins on the waves. It was very entertaining. I've seen dolphins in captivity do that kind of thing, but never dolphins in the wild. And when the dolphins are around, no need to worry about sharks <br><br>

I use to do some fishing at night from a pier in Florida and occasionally a dolphin would blow close to the pier. Scarred me every time it happened. <br><br>No need to worry about sharks when you're sitting on the porch, either.<br><br>

Body surfing is just what it sounds like- for humans, one would go out a short distance from the shore, right where the waves start breaking- and basically ride the wave in with your body until the wave flattens out...<br><br>Used to do it all the time at the Jersey shore...<br><br>[color:white]God speed, mikeb.

At least you made it to the beach. I've been in Florida for almost 3 weeks, and have yet to get to the beach — or even the pool in my complex! The new job has barely left me time to unpack, much less relax in the sun. <br><br>
