A Day at the Beach

Posted on

What a great day to go to the beach. We headed to our favorite beach-Ocean Grove.  In case you are not familiar with it, it is a charming town with beautiful little (and huge) Victorians. It is very interesting historically as it was established as a Methodist Camp Meeting.  The center of it all is the Great Auditorium, where religious services are still head and camp cottage are still set up all around it.

The main attraction for us, though, is the beach.

That and lunch and ice cream at our favorite place, Nagle’s.  It was once an apothecary and they still have interesting old apothecary items around, as well as papering the walls with old newspapers so you can see stand on line for the bathroom and read charming ads from 1911.

We had a wonderful time building sand castles, playing in the water, and relaxing.

  1. This place totally reminds me of O.B. and the gingerbread cottages! Remember Illumination Night?

  2. Lovely pictures! Ocean Grove is a great place to take pictures. I think the best picture I took last year was from there.

  3. We have friends who just bought a place there–right on the parkway. Can’t wait to get invited down. AND Grounds for Sculpture is one of our favorite places…used to take the kids there a lot. Now we go to the outdoor, less expensive part of Rats, which entitles us to wander about the grounds. It’s magical at night.
