Fred Ohleth, a retired 6’4″ NYC police officer, lives in a tent each summer with his wife Linda. His family goes back in the Grove, so he keeps up the tradition.  In the off- season Fred and Linda (no, not Fred and Ginger) have a condo in the Grove.  Fred is the Commander -in-chief of a small band of water, hot dog  and treats sellers who cover a number of events in town, but they are best known for their supply side activities in the shadows of the Great Auditorium on Saturday nights—-tonight it’s the Beach Boys (as if we don’t already have a few of those around.)

Fred and Linda  travel to the wilds of Pennsylvania for those dogs.  You must try one!   These volunteers work hard and party hard when the show is over.

Stop by and say hello to Fred, Linda, Shirley, Barbara, Mike, Ted and all the others who make sure that no one is hungry or thirsty at the GA  (right across the street from the bathrooms. )   And yes, you can take bottled water into the GA.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN.  4th of July (Sandy)

“And the boys from the casino dance with their shirts open like Latin lovers on the shore
Chasing all them silly New York virgins by the score

“And Sandy, the aurora is rising behind us
This pier lights our carnival life forever
Oh, love me tonight, for I may never see you again
Hey, Sandy girl
My, my, baby…”

Monmouth Battlefield State Park. By Paul Goldfinger 2014. ©

Monmouth Battlefield State Park. Atop Combs Hill.  By Paul Goldfinger 2014. ©. Click once to enlarge.

 

Paul Goldfinger, MD, Editor Blogfinger.net

The Battle of Monmouth took place in the vicinity of Monmouth Courthouse in Freehold.

On a blistering hot day on June 28, 1778 the land that is now Monmouth Battlefield State Park was the site of one of the longest battles of the American Revolutionary War.

From the State Parks information:   “Here at Monmouth, Washington restored a reputation battered by defeats in 1777.   In the day-long battle in the hills, wood lots, farm fields and meadows, the main Continental Army, retrained at Valley Forge, repulsed attacks by the main British Army.

 By the end, over 600 men were dead, dying or wounded and the Continental Army held the field.”

The vista above is from Combs Hill where the Continental Army had placed their artillery.

The park is a beautiful place where you can visit, picnic, ride horses or sleighs.  The visitor center is near where I was standing to make this photograph. The address is 16 Rt 33  Business in Manalapan.

I enjoy photographing battlefields, although this is only my second.  The first is Gettysburg which we have visited quite a few times.  Battlefields are evocative of so many qualities of man including bravery, fighting for right and freedom, loyalty and sacrifice.

It seems as if you can time- travel back in such a place as this, and that is an emotional experience.

I tried to capture that mood in this photograph which is much better felt in black and white than with color.  —
