Re-post from 2015.   “Around Town With Jean:”

“Harry Eichhorn’s Summer Band is a treasure. It is reminiscent of days gone by.
Where else can you hear a rousing song, feel the ocean breezes, then stroll for ice cream?”

–Jean Bredin, Blogfinger staff.

Here is a link to a 2013 article which we posted about Harry :     Wild about Harry

This hound can’t believe her eyes: No dogs on the boardwalk or the beach. Even Spring Lake has a dog beach.   Blogfinger photo. Click on photos to read the signs.    July, 2018. ©

 

Ocean Grove is an extremely dog-friendly town, but the Township and the CMA cannot find it in their hearts to provide a dog park or an after  (or before) hours dog beach.  Such places are as much for the owners as they are for the animals.  It’s a quality of life issue.

 

Want to smoke on the OG beach? Well, you cannot; read the sign. Oh, you can smoke on the Boardwalk.      Blogfinger photo.

The NJ  Governor just signed a law forbidding smoking on public beaches.  The price of a ticket is $250.00.

OGCMA banned smoking on our beaches some time ago, but would the OG beach be considered a “public beach” making such OG puffers eligible for that fine?  And what about those vapor puffers?

And is it OK to smoke in Auditorium Square Park?  There’s a big fire risk building over there.

The walking path has now been opened, following the boardwalk north past the two piles of rubble and other signs of the great fire.  A truck from the Neptune Office of Emergency Management has arrived, but their role in the cleanup is unknown to us.

You could stand on your head, but no one from the Mother Ship would offer some information on Blogfinger.  The last time that happened was with Committeewoman Mary Beth Jahn, when she opposed the North End Plan,  and she later got dumped by the Township Comedy.

The two rubble piles remain. Safety fence along the boardwalk.

Bikers, joggers, walkers, and tricky kids have returned this morning, the day after Easter Sunday.

I even saw a young woman walking with her friend, chattering back and forth as they swung their arms.  They both wore black leggings  (girls in their spring  clothes) and one wore a shirt that said, “Á La Mode.”

That made my day, trying to understand her messaging. Lately we see a lot more T shirts with messages other than “Marquette University” which also showed up this morning.  You can’t blame her for not wanting to be in Wisconsin in April.

This jury rigged path will allow life to resume as access to Asbury Park returns, and the merchants over there breathe a sigh of relief.  Now all that remains is to wait for the Asburians to begin the beguine.
