Maeve had just returned to the Grove after participating in a “PorchFest” in A. Park. 9/28/19

 

It’s not exactly “girls in their summer clothes” because Fall is just  5 days old, but it did hit 80 today in the Grove.  We spotted Maeve down one of the streets off Main, on her cell phone.  I asked her if I could photograph her for our “Portraits in the Grove” series when a car pulled up.   It was her parents—just in time.   I gave them a Blogfinger card, and they were pleased for the photo shoot   (I took 3 frames and was done.)  Maeve is 20 years old and a natural model.

And, by the way, the idea of a PorchFest is terrific.  They had small musical groups performing all afternoon on porches throughout  A. Park.   That would be a good idea for us to emulate as another musical event aimed mostly towards the residents of the Grove.

2019: Aviva is probably a teenager by now.   Is she now wearing tie-dye shirts like Mindy?  Such shirts are still available, but you need a time-machine from Amazon to order them.

Ocean Grove is a dog town.  It is a marvelous place to have a dog. People and their pets meet and socialize in our parks. We suspect that there are more dogs per square mile than in any other town in New Jersey.

Yesterday a neighbor stopped to chat with me in front of my house. Just then a man with a Weimaraner strolled by—the large dog was beautiful and elegant with a silver gray coat. The dog moved slowly towards the young lady. She looked at the dog and then engaged the dog owner about his pet.

I don’t have a dog, but Grovers are familiar with the importance of dogs in our community.

Social interactions like this happen often in Ocean Grove.

It’s a shame that the CMA could not understand this phenomenon when they precipitously rejected a public petition to have a dog park or a dog beach in the Grove. They said that it didn’t fit with their mission.
