It’s a big wooden cross stuck in the middle of beach sand, lest you forget that Ocean Grove is actually a Methodist townlette.

(I don’t think that “townlette” is an actual word, but it’s… a teensy town subset of Neptune Township.)

It is SO Methodist, in fact, that Ocean Grove was the source of a nationwide civil union controversy. (Speaking from my own experience and observations, the structure in question is NOT a religious place; it is a roof supported by four wall-corners–very shack-like and very open to the public.)
