Before Summer Goes…. A Look-Back at the Beginning

Island Beach State Park, New Jersey – June 22, 2015

6:57 AM: Walking barefoot along the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

Morning, in an area accessed by the “Fisherman’s Walk.”

A few feet away and seconds later, this polished gem looks like a stylized hovercraft from “Star Wars.”

“Fisherman’s Walk” offers an exceptional experience,  traversing a quarter mile (~400 m) of native fauna and wind-swept dunes between Barnegat Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

6:59 AM: The sand holds near infinite treasures.

And the early morning anglers compete with the Osprey and other sea birds to feed themselves, their waiting offspring and maybe even “bragging rights.”

For an overview of Tices Shoal, the gateway to this beautiful area, see “Summer at the Jersey Shore,” posted July, 2014 at this link. 

ALSO, (if I may strongly suggest,) for a far better daily view into the wonders of the “Tide Line,” please check out Maggie Beck’s enthralling site, Tide Line Still Life. 

As Usual, Thanks for Viewing, click on images for a larger view, and comments are always welcome. M 🙂
