After visiting a family member in a nursing home, I felt I owed the family something fun. We drove to Point Pleasant, with me worrying about finding parking, etc. Because I had just had surgery, I had a handicapped placard for my rental car. Not only did I find a spot across the street from the amusement park, I didn't have to pay! A new hip with a bonus of free parking!
We only spent about an hour on the boardwalk, but it was one of those glorious days that makes you wonder why anyone would go anywhere but down the shore. Topped off by a fried clam dinner at a small restaurant on the bay, and it turned a sad morning into a beautiful day.
