Wesley 5/7/18 ©Lake, Ocean Grove side. By Jean Bredin, swimming with the geese (and the grease.)

Hi Paul,

“The cherry blossoms are in abundance!
A colorful contrast to the winter months of snow and ice.
Even the reflections in the Lake are enjoyable.”

By Jean Bredin,Blogfinger staff ©, 4/13/18. Paul Eichlin usually plays inside the Casino, but today he ventures outside.

Says Jean:   “Daffodils, crocuses, and Paul Eichorn.
Spring is officially here.
There he was, catching a little sun on the Ocean Grove Boardwalk,
playing all the carousel tunes he can remember.”

Jean Bredin spotted this merman going for a quick dip in that cold, unruly Atlantic on the first day of spring.  3/20/18,  Ocean Grove. Blogfinger.net ©


A huge flock of robins showed up in Firemen’s Park today.  “Get the flock out of here,” said Old Father Time, so they flew away.

Jean found a crazy man going swimming.  “It’s the first day of spring, and I guess he just can’t wait to take the first dip of the season.  Unfortunately there’s another nor’easter brewing for tomorrow.”

This guy ran in and soon discovered the shape of cold water in early spring.   He was quick, because he was back out of the water by the time Jean zeroed in with her camera. Today the water temperature is 41 degrees, while the air is 35 degrees.


CANTWELL AND QUILLEN–It may not be April yet, but this fits:  “April Snow.”

Says Blogfinger reporter Jean Bredin who was running around town at the parade and at the Main Avenue Fireman’s Park  in her witches outfit.

The Ocean Grove Pet Boutique  (Main Avenue)  sponsored today’s event.

“The weather was perfect. There were lots of dogs, children and grown ups in costumes. Ocean Grove shops gave out candy to those who stopped in.

“The Parade marched down Main St., then turned around to where it originated, Firemen’s Park, where prizes were awarded to the winners.”
