Everyone loves a good sunset!
Some people do not love a good flock of seagulls, but y’know, it’s their loss.

In the Asbury Park Casino, where lots of murals have been painted in the last few years, there is a rainbow dripping down one of the exterior columns. It’s kind of horrible, and kind of beautiful. But you can decide for yourself.

Sometimes, if you time your trip to Sandy Hook just right, you can take a tour of the lighthouse!
Based on notes I took when I did the tour in 2009, this is the same Fresnel lens that they installed in the 1850s (right around when they switched from oil to kerosene). About 50 years later, right around the turn of the century, they switched from kerosene to an incandescent bulb, and I *think* Sandy Hook was the first lighthouse to implement such a modern bulb.
If that’s true, isn’t it neat?

Just the Asbury Park Paramount Theater by sunset.
Everything looks good with a sunset behind it.

In part of an ongoing effort to beautify Asbury Park, they painted some murals in and around the Asbury Park casino. I first saw the murals in spring/summer 2009 (which is when this was taken).
Any tasteful (TASTEFUL) painting with tentacles is okay by me.

Hello fiddler crab!
(He was on the bike path at Sandy Hook. Like Mister Snake, I almost skated over this guy, too.)
