Jersey Shore

Photography: Jersey Shore, Part 2

Our second weekend at the Jersey Shore was just as successful as the first one. As I mentioned in the last post, it is a shame that we haven’t gone to visit in a few years, I forgot just how charming and wonderful it is. Great options for where to stay, good food options, gorgeous beaches, multiple boardwalks, and if you live in the NJ/NY area, it is a short drive or train ride away.

Here’s the house we stayed in, 15 East Shore Way. The unfortunate website doesn’t have a link to the listing for the house, but it was rented through Ocean Beach rentals.

Look at how close to the beach! That turquoise house at the end is on the sand! I certainly understand wanting the house ON the beach, but the cost difference is really insane, and walking a few hundred feet was not a big deal.

There are lots of local businesses in the shore towns. Lots of great signage and I am a sucker for good design and fonts.

They have more than just pancakes.

It’s the end of the shore season now, but we will definitely be back in the future. I highly recommend a visit.

Photo Recap: Jersey Shore, Part 1

We have just spent our first weekend of the summer at the Jersey Shore, in and around Lavallette. I haven’t stayed at the shore in years, the last time was before the horrible damage that the area suffered in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy. It is incredible how much is repaired, the real sign of the aftereffects is seeing the giant cinder block foundations that are being put in place for all of the new houses being constructed.

All images taken with the Sony NEX-6.

Beautiful homes are everywhere. I particularly loved the windows on this house.

Fonts are always telling, and this sign appears to have been around for a long time. This is actually outside of Jenkinson’s Boardwalk, which took major storm damage.

Oh, inappropriate quotes.

We are going back to the shore this weekend. More photos to come!

I love how this shot turned out.

I know it’s been everywhere, but this is such a great song, and the fact that it is so upbeat and happy makes it so much better. Not safe for work!
