Gypsies & Zombies & Jersey - Oh My!

My oldest daughter makes for a beautiful gypsy - pictured here with our friend Amy at opening day of the 11th Annual Connecticut Renaissance Faire this past Saturday -

Amanda and Amy at the Renaissance Faire- but she also makes a good zombie as pictured in the 2009 Brooklyn Zombie Crawl that she participated in on May 31st.

This Saturday is the 2009 New Jersey Zombie Walk in Asbury Park (zombies in New Jersey, who'da guessed it?!?) and even though it wasn't originally in the plans for Amanda to lurch along with some of her other wannabe-zombie friends, I rethought driving up to New Hampshire to look at the beautiful fall foliage and decided instead that maybe a night at the Jersey Shore might not be so bad.

To that end, I booked a room for Friday night at The Berkley Ocean Front Hotel in Asbury Park right down the boardwalk from Zombie Central. The Berkley is one of the former grand hotels of the Jersey Shore that has been recently renovated but rumors have it that it might just be haunted!

I don't know ... looks kinda normal to me! If not, that's going to make for one heck of a blog post, ain't it?!?


  1. Zombie Girl, Haunted Hotel, and mom that loves cemeteries ... this could get really, really good.

  2. I'm hoping it is haunted so you will have a great post. Just saying. I don't think you'd mind if it was haunted either. Just saying.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  3. well have a great time! i can hardly keep up with your travels! ha ha ha

    smiles, bee

  4. Amanda can look very different. In her zombie guise, I thought "Give that zombie a hand"!

  5. You guys go all out for the occasion.

  6. I love it when you travel. You always come back with the most wonderful posts and photos!
    Have fun...just be sure you take lots and lots of garlic with you.

  7. Now I know people who are just as comfortable in jeans as a dress, but Amanda might have that all over them! Just saying!

    I DO hope it's haunted! Don't you?

  8. haunted!? I love that
    you could become a ghost buster ;)

  9. Oooh haunted hotel? How exciting!

  10. I thought she was "talking to the hand"! Whoops... :)
