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.
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.
