Natalie Hart relaxes at her family home on Ocean Pathway in Ocean Grove, New Jersey.  Sept. 30, 2017. Paul Goldfinger photo © Blogfinger.net. Click to enlarge.


Natalie Hart is a 21 year old college student from Bethlehem  (no, not the West Bank–she is from Pennsylvania.)  We were biking west on Ocean Pathway when we spotted Natalie relaxing on the porch of her family’s historic Victorian home.  She readily agreed to be photographed by Blogfinger.

She says that her family has been in Ocean Grove since its 19th  century founding and she has been coming to the Grove since she was “in utero.”

Natalie is a business student in Philadelphia.  She is delighted to be among the beautiful women of Ocean Grove who have joined our select series :  “Girls in Their Summer Clothes.”

You can enter that phrase into our search box (upper right corner) to see others from the series.  This year, so far, we have not posted Cousin Brucie’s song of the same name, so here it is:


BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN:  Live version.  The song was released in 2008 and received two Grammy nominations.

“And the girls in their summer clothes
In the cool of the evening light
The girls in their summer clothes
Pass me by…”

BEIRUT:    “A Sunday Smile.”


“All I want is the best for our lives, my dear
And you know my wishes are sincere
What’s to say for the days I cannot bear
A Sunday smile, you wore it for a while…”

“Well, she was just 17,
You know what I mean,
And the way she looked was way beyond compare.
So how could I dance with another (ooh)
And I saw her standing there.”

Paul McCartney is on his “One on One tour” and he recently performed in Newark at the Prudential Center and then at Madison Square Garden. in NYC.

Suffering Surfer of Ocean Grove attended the 9/11 concert in Newark.  Surfer was excited; he was going with his girlfriend and he was hoping that McCartney would sing “I Saw Her Standing There.”

He even made a song request sign to hold up, but he left it in the car.    The show set-list did not have that song, but McCartney did it as an encore.  Surfer was thrilled.  The show was over 3 hours long, and the audience was tireless.

During the MSG show, McCartney brought Bruce Springsteen and Steve Van Zandt up on stage to perform together. Eileen found the link below.

The audio on those YouTube videos aren’t very good, so a better audio version  (Beatles album)  is also posted below.  You will hear the difference.
