Asbury Park

Asbury Park here at the Jersey Shore is a unique, eclectic and historic seashore town.
The boardwalk has been revitalized and it really is better than ever.
There are several ocean front restaurants, shops, endless beaches and great surf.
We went for a walk on the boardwalk last Saturday,
we never walk far, we mostly sat on a bench and people watched.

But look at this place at 7 pm...

the beaches are still packed with people.

And as much as we love this place, let's get back to the "unique" and "eclectic"...




It's just that kinda' vibe.

And the sky was beautiful as we were leaving,
setting over the legendary Stone Pony, 
Bruce Springsteen's home!

  8. I love to people-watch. I used to imagine what they did for a living...played Sherlock about where they live, what they've experienced in their lives. So of course I turned into a writer.

    Love the sunset

  10. What a fun place. It sort of reminds me of Venice Beach here. You never know what you are going to see. Lovely pictures though. Will it not be so crowded after Labor Day?
