Usually there are still a couple of good beach weather weekends in early fall, so if we're craving a little sun worship that gets to happen on a relatively empty beach, especially compared with the summer crowds. Nothing like laying out enjoying the sun and a good book while wearing spf100+ and not having anyone around you! Plus, after a certain date we can take Nala to the beach and boards and she just loves playing ball on the beach!
We can enjoy a sunset at the park overlooking the bay - all by ourselves!
The final great thing about the off season- our condo buildings remains rather unoccupied. Which means we get our prime parking spot, away from other cars because my husband is a freak about door dings, and don't have to worry about hogging the staircase as we run construction equipment up to the condo.
Don't get me wrong, I love summer. And there is nothing like waking up on a steamy July morning a block from the ocean. But I've also fallen a little bit in love with the off season down the shore.
