So, as I mentioned yesterday,
when the hubs and I were out and about on Saturday,
I did not want to go home and the hubs is very easy to trick.
Well, not really, he's on to me but I just needed an afternoon to
explore a fun and historic area, camera in hand.
You know...I needed blog material.
We drove through Ocean Grove,
as there was a huge fire there on Friday.
Ocean Grove is one of my favorite towns at the shore,
and the fire was devastating for many businesses and homeowners.
Next stop, The Paramount Theater in Asbury Park
The older this building gets, the more beautiful it becomes.
The world famous Wonder Bar
Bar, Grill & Beer Garden
This restaurant opened on Saturday while we were visiting
and made it impossible to find a parking spot for taking pictures.
Normally, there is plenty of parking along this stretch of Wesley Lake
but I guess this is a new "hot spot restaurant" in Asbury.
I spotted these two love birds at Sunset Lake,
and then I was ready to go home.
I also saw and photographed some Hooded Merganser
that was a first for me.
I'll share those pictures tomorrow!!
