Well, here is another brief trip report in honor of my first "summer" weekend at my folks place in Wildwood now that some of Morey's Piers have opened for the season. I got into town late Friday night and sat up with my Mom to catch up, followed by a much needed late night soak in their wonderful hot tub before turning in.
My folks joined me around noon on Saturday for a stroll down to and along the boardwalk and I'd hope to get a few rides in. Also happening this weekend was the annual Classic Car Show, which I got a ton of pictures of.
Their classic hybrid woodie, The Great White, was still closed for a few weeks so I was sorta bummed about that but even in my mellow mood couldn't resist hopping on the Sea Serpent, the piers oldest steel looping coaster, a Vekoma boomerang for a front seat ride.

The first summer visit of the year is always nice as my folks live in Wildwood year round so I visit quite a bit off season when it turns into a nice little quiet small town for a few months. To see the tourism machine crank back into action is fun and gives me that occasionally needed reminder of me why I love Wildwood so so much.
