Groovin' Jersey



Long Beach Island, New Jersey
Summer 1986

I don't know. It's threatening to start up Winter out there — so I figured I'd totally ignore it and think about something else — the Jersey Shore.

I love this picture! I can remember the countless hours playing paddleball on the beaches of LBI. Thanks for posting this -- brought back great memories of our summers in Spray Beach.

Amyo!

For the people that lived and played in THIS New Jersey, there really was (is) no better place to Summer. The people that make all the of Turnpike and 'What Exit?' jokes — have NO idea.

I"m glad you enjoy it.
