This polar vortex weather has me dreaming of summer on the Jersey shore, especially in my beloved Asbury Park. The hubs and I grew up around there, and I worked in nearby Fort Monmouth until it closed, so the area holds lots of meaning for us. We aren't really old enough to have seen its decline and general disrepair, but we appreciate its current renewal anyway.
So today I'm looking longingly at some Asbury pics we've taken over time, and hoping for an early spring!
Stella Marina was a favorite date night spot when we lived around here, as was Watermark (not pictured) for its pineapple infused rum.
McLoone's, originally Howard Johnson's. Glad they didn't change the building.
