... and headed back to Tom's Tavern, for a couple of afternoon pints. There was no special on Fridays, so we had to pay $2 - friggin highway robbery. We didn't stay too long before heading back to camp, the rain had not eased up all day but at least the yurt was dry inside.
With no way to cook and being well and truly over fast food, we decided to go out for dinner. Back to Lakewood we headed ...
We came back in time to make a Regional Tournament in New Jersey. This was a B-Level Tournament with a story. Kathryn has not had the opportunity to do many tournaments this year. The girl that placed second last year has a solid first place lead. This tournament is in her region! So competing serves two purposes. 1) Gain some points. 2) Gain points and deny the other girl from getting points.
... but unfortunately it was closed so we just had to stand at the entrance to it and take some photos. As we say, no fun to be had at this time of year! We drove a bit further and found a nice spot to have our lunch by the sea before continuing north up the coast. We passed through one seaside town which could have been transported from the UK in its entirety; lots of amusement arcades, fairground rides and accommodation to let. We also came across another roundabout, except here ...
... been cancelled at the last minute over safety concerns after a family of French tourists was killed in Mauritania by a group claiming to be affiliated with Al Qaeda. It is based on stories like these reported in the news that most people form their impressions of Africa. However, in my experience the reality is so very different, one of friendly healthy people, deep religious convictions, peaceful conditions, hard-working poverty, and continuous attempts ...
This entry has a few pictures from my trip to New York City for my London internship interview. As of May 2nd, I have been accepted to the program, but have yet to be placed with a sponsor company. It will probably be another month and half before I receive final word if I will be leaving in August, but this has been a major leap forward! I hope you all enjoy my ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Windswept Motel Point Pleasant Beach
We recently returned from a stay at the Windswept. It's difficult to write a fair review because the Windswept is indeed above average for the central Jersey Shore, but still far from great on any kind of broader scale. Our stay started with a small disappointment that our "oceanview" room was really a "parking lot view" room, with a glimpse of the beach if you stood in a particular spot on the small balcony and sort of craned your neck around to the side. Make sure if you want a real view to book the "oceanfront" rooms, which are the same price but seem to go pretty fast. The room itself is clean but very basic. The bedding was fine, and the sparse furniture was decent. They do provide beach passes and towels, but not chairs or umbrellas. The small pool was fine for an afternoon dip, and generally not too crowded. There are no restaurants on site, but the restaurants at the White Sands next door were convenient and decent (especially the beachfront Lido Cafe).
It was an alright stay
When we went to the windswept in Summer of 2000 it was an alright stay. The rooms weren't that clean. But the people there were overly friendly. The pool was beautiful the water was warm and clean and I enjoyed just being able to walk across the street and be literally on the beach it a very nice hotel for families and couples despite the few minor problems we had with our room but the people when to great heights to help us repair the problem and get our vacation started :)
A wonderful motel
The Windswept Motel is a magnificent motel. I have been going there every year and it gets better and better. It is a great convenience. The board walk is a few steps away and the beach is just a small view away. It has wonderful restuarants near by and all the staff is awsome. Whoever is reading this and has never been to the Windswept, please dont think twice and go! You`ll love it! Thanks, A.N
Clean roooms friendly staff
very clean well kept nice getaway !! checkout a little 10:00am sometimes they will work with you for a later checkout. been staying there for about 8 years.
No problems here
Recently stayed at the Windswept and was quite pleased.... Friendly staff and the rooms are very clean and nice sized.....also ample towels provided and they are nice and fluffy! Close enough to walk to the boardwalk as well. Would definitely stay there again!
The Windswept is above and beyond anyting else in Point Pleasant. Clean rooms, caring family oriented staff. Took us a few years to find it, wouldn't stay anywhere else !
The Perfect Getaway, all season long.
My husband and I have been going to the Windswept for year and we are always delighted by the very clean accomodations, the pleasant and accomodating staff and the wonderful private beach. We've never been disappointed!
After years of dissappointing experience at another local hote, found perfection at the Windswept with friendly, accomodating staff, clean rooms which are very nicely decorated (not like a typical shore hotel room), great oceanviews, clean pool....just an all around great experience!
Windswept Motel is Great
We just returned from a trip to Point Pleasant NJ for the Colombus Day weekend. Our accomodations at the Windswept Motel were excellent. Last year, however, our room was double the size but this one was great also. If you go ask for a room in the second building (not the building where the office is). If you ask for 2 queen sized beds the rooms are huge!
This is a great hotel, esepecially for families. My family has been staying there since I was a little kid. It is family operated and is very clean and well taken care of. It is a minute walk away from the private beach and Jenkinsons' boardwalk. The only thing is that you have to book very early to get the ocean front rooms, as they are the most popular.
