A Walk Through Smithville

Only about 40 minutes from home, we visit Historic Smithville, NJ frequently.
Located on Lake Meone, with sixty quaint shops, cobblestone paths, 
several restaurants and a number of specialty historic buildings,
it is a great place to wander around for an afternoon.
The Village Greene has a cute train and carousel for the little ones.


It is a beautiful village filled with lot's of ducks and wildlife.

The Wood Ducks



Male Mallard Ducks




The Overshot Waterwheel

Lobster Traps



We had a wonderful meal at the 
Historic Smithville Inn
It was a warm January day, the sun was full and the sky was blue...
you couldn't ask for more!
