Rollin’ on the river

Ye Olde Passaic River

Just in case you forgot what rivers look like.

Tho’ I guess the Passaic River is really more of a brook once it gets to New Providence.

Better bring your beach pass

Beach passes required!

But you can dip your toes in the water for free before 9am or after 5pm!

These boards were made for walkin’

Rebuilding the boardwalk

Despite Ocean Grove being denied FEMA funding for rebuilding its boardwalk, the construction continues anyway. The Ocean Grove beach offices/ restrooms/ base of the fishing pier is one of the lucky sections to get a revamped boardwalk out of the deal.

Apparently this new boardwalk is a composite material. (Whether to use wood or composite for the new boardwalks has been the source of controversy in other shore towns [most notably Belmar].)

 

They’ve done a lot of construction since January:

Which is all great progress from what Sandy wrought:

Goats

Goats!

Of all the amazing images I’ve ever captured… this is not one of them. But who doesn’t like looking at goats in a bucolic field? Rhetorical question, don’t answer that.

Monochrome

OMG SO MUCH FOG

This is where I’d write something about this photo, if I had anything to say about it, but I don’t.

Sand

Sand, sea, and sunset

Eh. Just a beach.

Snowpile

Pile of snow, pile of snow, you are there where'er I go

I have no idea why there is a giant heap of snow in Grove Park. Do you? Maybe some kids were playing? Maybe the goal was to build the largest possible mound of snow? I dunno.

Horseshoe Cove (back in the day)

Horseshoe Cove

This is an old photo— from 2007— and the fact that it’s only 56kb scares me a little— but I think it looks okay…? No major artifacting?

Anyway.

It’s Horseshoe Cove, on Sandy Hook (New Jersey)— which is all but inaccessible at the moment, and probably doesn’t look quite like this anymore. But it’s still a nice scene to think about.

Navesink River, 6:39AM

Navesink River, NJ

I dunno, clouds are pretty sometimes.

Frozen pond

Seeley's Pond frozen solid

After a week of above-freezing weather, it’s almost guaranteed that Seeley’s Pond is no longer frozen solid like this.

But after last week’s run of nothing above 25°F, it was sure frozen last week.

I saw some kids running on it, which blew my mind a little. Encouraged, I cautiously tested it for myself, and: yup, totally frozen, totally walkable.

F*** yeah geese

Even geese were like “yeahhh, check ME out, crossin’ this pond without swimming, aw yeah.”
