Hello hungry readers! If you guys are like me, you love the beach, so when my Aunt invited me to join them for a beach day in Gloucester, I was ecstatic to be able to finally pull out my sunglasses and bikini and head on up.

After dreaming of the beach all throughout my long MCAT study days during the early part of this summer, I was mega pumped. I decided to bake a simple cheesecake to bring along as a surprise (recipe to come! ;)) And boy, was it the right decision. Who knew cheesecake and the beach go along so well with each other? We all loved it, and it kept well in the cooler. Topped with the strawberries my Aunt had brought along, it was a summer match made in heaven.

After attempting and failing to body board in the freezing sea water, I spent the rest of my time leisurely flipping through The New Yorker and eating snacks while drying out. (In hindsight, I should’ve re-applied sunscreen here, as I got the worst burn EVER! Darn it. Sunscreen is important people! Nerd Jasmine would like to emphasize this. Nobody wants skin cancer. ) For lunch, we headed to this awesome place that served only fried seafood. Can’t go wrong with fried food!

Here we have fried: clam, shrimp, clam strips, and scallops. Along with onion rings and french fries, it was a glorious fisherman’s plate. The scallops were my absolute favorite- sweet, juicy and tender on the inside, yet remarkably crisp on the outside. Can anyone say “healthy” though or what? Heehee.

It was a long long day, but full of fun and good times. It felt wonderful to take a day away from the city and have some good ol’ R&R. Hope you guys enjoyed this short little post, and hopefully there will be more beach-y experiences for me to share soon hohoho!
