A Day at the Beach

There is always something going on at the Jersey Shore.
You don't ever have to drive far to find a fun festival, beautiful park,
a gorgeous beach or a great restaurant.
 
New Jersey has something for everyone.
Sunday is Fun-Day around our house,
and we never have trouble filling the day with lots of fun.
 
Last Sunday started at the The Scone Pony Bake Shop
We loaded up with sweet treats and a hot loaf of the best
Italian Bread I have ever eaten.
Half the loaf was gone before we even hit the beach.

 There were lots of tiny rocks and shells but not much sea glass.

Lots and lots of,
 
  interesting barnacles...

 and plenty of sea weed.

Autumn is our favorite time of year to visit the beach,

it's so quiet, calm and beautiful...and best of all, no peeps!

 The hubs noticed and photographed these pretty patterns
in the sand.

 Fall on the beach...

foam on the rocks and pretty treasures from the sea!!
 
We rode the bikes on the boardwalk,
we drove through Asbury Park and Belmar,
making plenty of stops to photograph Geese, Egrets and Deer.
 
We had an awesome dinner at one of my favorite restaurants,
We were going to ride the bikes there,
they have an ocean side, dedicated bike bath but we were so
tired and our bellies were so full,
we rolled ourselves home.
 
ohhhh and here's my take from the day...
lots of pretty shells, rocks and a few pieces of sea glass!

  3. The Scone Pony! Fun! Reminds me of my Saturday nights at the original Stone Pony. Then eats at The Inkwell. Their burgers were FAB.

    Wonderful pix, dear. But my fave is the last one. That dish is the perfect showcase for NJ beach treasures. And treasures they are.

    Happy Fun-day! xo, m & jb

  7. These are lovely shots - there is always something so comforting about the colors of sea and sand...very soothing. Tell Chuck that I love the patterns in the sand...always fascinates me what the water does - never exactly the same thing twice! Happy Sunday!
