The fishing pier is still there when it's gloomy out. I have proof!

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.)



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


I don’t know what that thing it, but it’s a big and easily identifiable building on Atlantic Highlands.

I went to Coney Island in March. When I walked to the end of the pier, I squinted my eyes and said, “Hey!!! That’s the Highlands!!!”

“How can you tell?” asked the friend I was with.

“See how the land is all flat there except for that building sticking up in the middle?”

“So you can identify New Jersey by that giant blemish, boil, blight on the landscape?”

“Yeah! Isn’t that awesome?!”

Also seen in photos taken from Coney Island: the Twin Lights (above)…

…and Sandy Hook lighthouse (above)!

For as often as I’ve seen New York City from Sandy Hook, it was really cool to do it in reverse.

(The originals of these photos were taken at absolute full 10x zoom, full resolution. And I still had to crop those last two photos to ~420 pixels wide.)


The lake at Thompson Park. It’s kinda pretty, innit?

Okay. So. I know I’ve shown the sun setting over Sandy Hook before, and I know I’ve shown the kitesurfers in Sandy Hook Bay before, but have I shown them TOGETHER?!

Seriously, though, this blog has been totally devoid of color lately. It’s summer! I thought I could leave the drab browns and grays for winter!

Soooooo here’s a colorsplash.

Things have been kind of wet around here for a few days.

Shaaaark Rvr Bridge is op'ning up, op'nin up, op'ning up

Shaaaark R’v’r Bridge is op’ning up, op’nin up, op’ning up
Shaaaark R’v’r Bridge is op’ning up,
My fair lady

(Okay, so you’ve already seen this drawbridge a few times.)
