... with us. The museum was interesting, luckily a lot of it inside. I'm not sure I would like to live on a submarine, so little space to yourself. There was a very evil looking Blackbird spy plane, and a Concorde too. On the way from the ferry we went the scenic route back to Sea Bright, some rather nice looking houses here, with gardens and plenty of woodland between them. There were some thrush-like birds about with an orange/red breast. ...
... of the problem. So getting to this track was very intersting, because we drove through a very nice residential area just to get here, looks like there is a small airport right behind us. So I have pictures I need to post so I think I should have time this week to do that. After this race we are heading back down to (Dan & Sue's) house until the following Mon. for another (believe it or not) time off. Until then CYA down the ...
Not a lot to report today really. Spent the day in the library doing more of the same. Also got to live chat online with our friends Jamie & Steph, which was great. It was nice to have some good conversation with nice people after the events of the last few days. We even got to see their friendly faces using our webcams. That really cheered us up.
Our cheer was short-lived ...
... elegant casual nights. Because everyone was dressed, it was FUN and so elegant. Cunard has special nights such as Black & White Ball, Buccaneers Ball, Jazz Band Ball and a Masquerade Ball. You are notified before sailing of these nights so you can come prepared to participate. This ship has everything. Illuminations: Planetarium with several showings daily to choose from. Only 150 people can attend each showing, so get there early to get your tickets. ...
... Joan Osbourne who did ballads, rock and some country. It was a full 3 hours of music for a $3 entry fee, and we were joined by Roberta's mate Gia who afterwards took us for late sushi (yes, we admit - more food and it was very good too) On Sunday morning we walked Wall St to check out the NYSE, given that Jen's working day is based on the action there, as well as the other exchanges in the USA. Seems since 911, the NYSE is not open to ...

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.
