Welcome to Asbury Park

Welcome to the Asbury Park Boardwalk....
Home of "The Boss"
All summer long, every Wednesday night, we come here for the amazing fireworks display!!

This is not your "typical" seaside boardwalk, it's an "interesting" place.....
 with a super cool and historic vibe!! I'll let the pictures tell the story!!

The world famous Wonder Bar.....
Bruce Springsteen performed here a few weeks ago, sadly, we missed that!!!!

Madam Marie's "Phychic" Temple

The Berkley Carteret.....
formerly owned by Johnny Cash!!!!

It was a gorgeous night at the Jersey Shore.

LaPlaca Pottery Works

gorgeous pottery.......

super unique stuff!!!!!

We met this super fun boy........
For $ 1.00, we got one of those "light up" necklace"s and a Michael Jackson dance and pose!!!! 

Can anyone say funnel cake?!?!
Extra sugar please!!!!!
It looks a little more like "we'll have some funnel cake with our sugar!!!

We ate that while we watched these...........

Oh what a night.......August 10, 2011


  1. i would not buy one of those pot heads, but i'd surely stop in at the psychic temple! :)

  2. I love it all! Thank you for taking me places I will never see in person.

  3. I'm with Jill, it's nice to see places that we will never get to see. Although you should never say never. Lol.
    I'd LOVE to see Bruce Springsteen - isn't he great!! Bringing out the teenager in me. Ha ha

  4. Colorful pottery, love the blue piece on the bottom left, and funnel cakes and fireworks! I could go for that...looks like a wonderful evening. We'll be seeing funnel cakes next month in Branson at SDC. Have you ever made them? They are really quick and easy. Have a great day!

  5. Loved seeing all these pics! I've always wanted to visit there since seeing 'Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken' when I was child. So much history held there! Thanks for visiting my blog lately....I've enjoyed your comments. :)

  6. Since I've been hooked on Boardwalk Empire -- of course, I love seeing these photos, Debbie. How cool that they have fireworks every week. Love it! :)

  7. I want to go!
    And yes I can..."FUNNEL CAKE!!" Now can I have some too?:)))
    Looks like a wonderful place.

  8. How cool to live so close to so much fun! I love summer fireworks and the crowd and excitement that go with them.

    One large funnel cake with extra sugar please!

  9. It looks like my kind of evening!

  10. I never thought I would want to go to New Jersey....But now I do!!

  11. Really?! Every wedNesday? Lucky lucky. It looks so cool! I love the "interesting" things about it! That funnel cake .. I mean pile of sugar looks yummy!

  12. That would be so much fun,to watch fireworks weekly.
