For the past 4 days my husband and I have been relaxing down the shore, in Avalon NJ. It was a perfect time to go. The crowds are gone and the streets are empty!
The town is beautiful and I couldn't help but show you some of the gorgeous houses.
The one above is for sale in case you are looking.....!
The weather was cooperating and every day we biked for at least 2 hours. We would go to breakfast and then tour the town. Check out the mermaid weathervane on top.

The gardens were equally impressive, especially in the hot beach weather. I am pretty sure all those pretty flower boxes had a watering system.
This was one of my favorites, I loved the symmetry and the flowers for sure! To the right is their pretty garage and a pool too. Don't you just want to walk through that arch, covered with a mandevilla vine?
Every single home made sure you had a great view of the Atlantic and decks to take advantage of the cool ocean breeze. Again how pretty are the flowers!
It has inspired me for next year's garden. The flower boxes had either petunias or ivy geraniums.
This one had a lovely deep side porch that overlooked the ocean. I am pretty sure there are lots of parties held there!
While these houses are over the top, the ones in Stone Harbor are even more over the top. Next time I will share some of those with you. In the meantime I can only dream about what they look like on the inside!
