It's warm here at the Jersey Shore! I snapped this pic around 10 am this morning at Ocean Grove (that's Asbury Park in the distance) - this lady had the perfect spot on the beach for her workout. The locals all know that September is THE month for perfect beach weather without the crowds, but late October?
The sky is that perfect shade of blue and it's just warm enough for a nice nap in the sun. One nice thing about my new job is that I have *field days* when I have to make home visits. I don't much enjoy poking around in client's homes, but I do really like the chance to be out of the office a few days a week. In between appointments this morning I took a walk on the boardwalk and enjoyed the warm breezes with Monarchs floating along the dunes. What a beautiful day it was.
The rugosa roses are still blooming and I was tempted to pick a bag of rose hips for jelly. Ocean Grove has a long history as a religious camp town and Sunday services are still held in a little pavilion on the beach with a view of the dunes and the sea.
