Ocean Grove To Asbury Park

 We have been having warmer temperatures and warmth always brings us to the boardwalk for a walk.
On Wednesday we went to Ocean Grove.
This boardwalk was destroyed during Super Storm Sandy and rebuilt shortly after.
It is nice and smooth, 
a beautiful walk, with a great view of its old victorian homes.

Ocean Grove





Ocean Grove is a small seaside community that leads right in to the fun and historic


The Grand Arcade is home to 
The Paramount Theater, Convention Center, eclectic shops and a restaurant.



This is the old, historic carousel house built in May 1928.
The carousel itself was purchased in 1990, 
removed from this building and moved to Family Kingdom Park in Myrtle Beach South Carolina.
It still operates there today with fiberglass replicas of the original wooden horses.


Both Ocean Grove and Asbury Park are small seaside communities.
Both are known for their sandy beaches and beachfront boardwalks lined with shops, arcades and cafes.

We saw a row of hearts on the sand dune, there had to be at least 20, just like this, drawn in a row.

  7. A beautiful area perfect for a walk and to take pictures!
    Love the architecture. The carousel house was built in the same year that my father was born: 1928.

  10. Such great big buildings, it looks pretty deserted. Someone kept busy drawing hearts, neat to come upon, makes you wonder what the story behind it was :)
