So close yet so far..

This post includes a link to a photo shoot in Bradley Beach and Avon By the Sea.   This afternoon I took my roast beef sandwich and drove to Avon By the Sea to see how they fared and if they were ready for Memorial Day. Avon By the Sea and Bradley Beach are two towns just north of Belmar.  Yesterday’s blog was focused on the rebuilding of the boardwalk and beaches in Belmar. As I drove through Belmar today, part of Ocean Ave was closed to traffic. There were news trucks setting up for the governors visit. I guess it was sound bite time to let the world know that the beaches are open the boardwalk (mostly) is open for business.

Once I got over the drawbridge that crosses the Shark River, I drove north along the ocean looking for places to park and take pictures. I am happy to report that Bradley Beach has their parking meters installed. Not yet in Avon By the Sea nor Belmar for that matter. They still have two days to resolve that dilemma.  I stopped at various points and took some pictures. The link to those pictures is here.  After I finished taking my pictures, I got stuck at the drawbridge while a fishing boat went under and out into the ocean.  Once on the other side of the drawbridge, the roadblocks were gone and the news trucks were closed up.  So close to the governor, yet so far.  Maybe next time.

DS3 and I went to Manalapan to play lacrosse tonight.   I did not have any goals.  Neither did he. Somehow we wound up on opposite teams. I really wanted to play on the same team as him. He might, might, pass me the ball..

Here are a few pictures from todays photo shoot.  Enjoy!

Namaste
