I love autumn at the Jersey Shore. Yes, autumn! I’ve been neglecting the blog and am a little bit behind. Is it acceptable to still blame the holidays, even though it’s February? This was a beautiful November day at the beach. Compared to our most recent weather it seems darn near tropical.
A few weeks ago I took a trip ‘down the shore’ and came across the newly minted Guinness Book of World Records World’s Tallest Sandcastle at Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. At 38 feet, 2 inches, it’s just slightly taller than the sandcastle’s I used to make on this very beach. OK, OK – it’s about 37 feet taller than my best sandcastle effort.
I stopped by Natirar, which is a local estate here in the Somerset Hills of New Jersey. On the day I visited, the grounds were set up to host a wine tasting festival. It is now a county park but was at one time owned by the King of Morocco. Oddly enough I never ran into His Majesty at the local grocery store.
