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.

This is the Ocean Grove fishing pier.
(I love it when a photo is really juicy right out of the camera. Like this. Bam.)
(Well. I did straighten it and nudge the white point a little, but that’s it, I swear.)

Some people like to take their dogs out on lonely beaches to give ‘em some exercise. (It’s more difficult to do this when there are people laying about everywhere.)
Ahhh, the good old days of two weeks ago! It was still chilly then.

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.
