The Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park!!

Asbury Park is a "cool" town, 
with some great history and a bit of a hippie vibe.
It's home for Tillie, The Wonder Bar, The Stone Pony and Bruce!
Here at the Jersey Shore, Bruce does not need a last name. 

The evolution of and attempts to revitalise Asbury Park have been ongoing.
A new mural project is underway on the boardwalk.
The "Wooden Walls" is a beautification project
created by Pau Ouintanajornet.

I found the rest of these murals, just around the corner from Pau's work,
in the old Casino right on the boardwalk!!
The old Casino has it's own history and story,
I hope to tell it soon and share some of the pictures I took
of the Casino itself.

Asbury Park has a history and beauty all it's own!

And there are some really awesome eateries here as well.

 Today, we ate at Stella Marina Bar and Restaurant, right on the boardwalk,
with an amazing view of the ocean.
We both had pasta and our meals were delicious.

And when you look up, this is what you see...
how could you not love the Jersey Shore, in all it's glory.

We visited on June 20th, 2015
if you ever have the chance to visit, come, you won't be disappointed.
