A Trolley Ride And Christmas Lights

Saturday night we went for a trolley ride, around 
Ocean Grove







Afterward,
we went for a ride in our "four wheel drive sled" to view the Christmas lights on display.
It's a tradition, on the winter bucket list...so we had to!

This house was my favorite.




This next house was wild but I must admit, the child in me loved it!










Can you believe that was all one house?



The next 2 were favorites also!



It was a good ride and a really fabulous night!

  1. Some really nice lights! I wonder how long it took for the one house to blow up all of those inflatables? LOL! Since we live in the country the lights are more scattered, but several houses along the way to ours have lights up. I hope you enjoyed your trolley ride!

  2. How fun to see all those gorgeous houses lighting up all their lights and paying homage to the festive season. Gosh, they know how to light up the world in your neck of the woods, don't they.

  8. Those are the best Christmas lighted house photos I’ve ever seen! I didn’t get to drive around and look at lights this year and you know what? I’m enjoying yours so much it doesn’t matter! I’ll be back to look at these again throughout the day as I sit down with a cup of tea to rest. Or a glass of tea as it’s a bit warmer than in recent days. I know it was on the cold side as you and hubs were out that night. But there you were in your sandals! I don’t know why I get such a kick out of seeing them but I do!

  15. Oh my gosh, I kept trying to pick a favorite too, but they are all just lovely and precious in their own way, it's hard to do. It appears you have no snow, and it looks like it was a beautiful evening to enjoy all of it. Thanks for sharing it with us too.
