    Default NJ One Day Nor'easter

    I got fishing and photo gear ready last night, and arrived at Island Beach State Park (several miles south of where I live) before sunrise this morning, hoping for decent fishing, and maybe a sunrise - as you can see from the photo below, that didn't happen. Despite the weather, I did get some fishing in (no fish), and spent several hours along the beach and along Barnegat Inlet. The wind was blowing about 30 out of the northeast, so the flying sand (visible in some of the dune photos) and spray made the photography less than ideal. Towards the end of my walk, the Coast Guard headed out the inlet to play (train) in the surf, unfortunately, I had already started back, and was too far away for decent pictures...

    Same here babe, same here. But that's the good thing!! We live only an hour away!! Let's take a drive!!

    Great shots of the waves and the waves breaking over the rocks. Joe is right though, I miss the seacoast at times also. I loved taking my blanket and sitting in the sand while I took pictures and did some sketches, as I watched the huge kites flying over the sand bars. Of course I think Joe misses it most because he wants to do the penguin plunge in February LOL. He and my son both swim in the lakes up here in March LOL

    Great photos. My wife absolutely loves the beach but myself however I love the mountains. I can't wait for the day she says o.k lets sell and move north for good.

    It would be nice to find a place that had the ocean and mountains in close proximity. As I type this, I am only a couple hundred yards from the ocean, but any "real" mountains are at least 4 hours away...

    In my book Acadia qualifies for this (although I'm sure that many would argue that these aren't "real" mountains). Not many other choices on the east coast sadly. Pacific Northwest perhaps? It would be hard for me to leave New England though. I'm pretty content to be where I can be at the ocean in a half hour and in the "real" mountains in 3 hours.

    and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods.

    Default Acadia

    I'm with Mark, Acadia is the place! There's enough trails and views there to make a very happy retirement spot.
