Asbury Park Photo Walk

A beautiful summer morning—just right for a photo walk with Michael and Beverly Miller in Asbury Park. We started at Convention Hall early when we had the pale morning light, and wandered around taking photos as the sky brightened and the beach and boardwalk began to fill up.

 

Here are some photos from the walk.

Summer is Here–at Least in Spirit

Summer has arrived, if not officially, at least in spirit. The brand new Marina Grill opened for business in Belmar—and it was packed. The tent houses in Ocean Grove are being readied for the summer season, and the rides at Jenkinson’s Pavilion on the boardwalk at Point Pleasant are open for business on the weekends.

Beautiful Day in NYC

Yesterday, February 2 was a beautiful day in Manhattan–although a bit in the brisk side. A stroll around Central Park provided some nice photo opportunities–see below. We will be in Hawaii in a coupe of weeks, so we will be posting from Maui pretty soon.

Quick Trip to NYC

Just back from a quick trip to New York, where we went to see the show “Beautiful” about Carole King. Just tremendous.

The Christmas Tree is lit up; getting around 5th Avenue is a nightmare now that Trump tower is serving as the White House North. Speaking of Trump, we had lunch with friends from the Serenity Crystal cruise at the Jean-George Nougatine Restaurant at 1 Central Park West. Just spectacular.

Here are a couple of shots from around town.

Winter Fishing

It is cold and crisp in Spring Lake–perfect weather for some winter fishing.
