Playin' with a dog in good ol' Ocean Grove

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.

Octowoman mural in Asbury Park

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.

Battery Potter from the inside

After taking an initial tour of Battery Potter in 2008, I took a second tour just this past spring (2011). I dunno, I enjoyed it. 🙂

The muralist at work!

In July 2010, I was lucky enough to stumble upon a muralist putting the finishing touches on a new mural by the Asbury Park casino.

I think I have photos of the exact wall before it was painted, but I’ll need to find them and re-upload them; I had all my black-and-white photos stored on Zooomr, which permanently went kaput without giving any warning.

Ahhhhh summer.

Are you jonesing for warmer weather yet? I am. Here’s Ocean Grove in June.

(Same view as the one I posted last week, actually. I can’t help it; if I’m on the Ocean Grove pier, and I have my camera, I need to take a photo.)

Beachwalkers

Who said nobody goes to the Jersey shore in January? That’s when the locals can finally enjoy an uncrowded beach!

Tschüss!
