ENGLEBERT HUMPERDINCK   “Didn’t We?”

“This time we almost made the pieces fit
Didn’t we?
This time we almost made some sense of it
Didn’t we?
This time I had the answer, right here in my hand
Then I touched it and it had turned to sand.”

The statement below is from John DiGiamberardino, Executive Director (COO)  Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association.:

“The Ocean Grove Camp Meeting Association (OGCMA) is excited to announce the commencement of a greater than $ one million reconstruction project for the North End boardwalk area from McClintock Street to Seaview Avenue. The project will begin in early January, 2018, and completion is targeted for May 2018. This represents the next phase of the Camp Meeting Association’s ongoing efforts to improve our boardwalk for residents and visitors alike.

“The Camp Meeting’s goal is to match the new decking material with that of the most recent renovations to the other sections which were installed since Superstorm Sandy.

“For your safety and awareness, there are certain things you should be informed of as the project gets underway. The electricity for boardwalk lighting to the area has been turned off, and the existing sections of boardwalk will be removed. For safety reasons, the entire section under construction will be closed to the public.

“You can expect construction traffic and construction noise, with the most significant noise taking place when pilings are being driven. A number of Ocean Avenue parking spots on the east side of Ocean Avenue will be closed from public parking in order to provide a temporary walkway for pedestrians.

“Together we can look forward to a beautiful new section of boardwalk in spring 2018!   Watch our Facebook page or sign up to receive our newsletter on our website (www.oceangrove.org) for updates on the project.”

Editor’s note:  The CMA announcement on January 10 did not include these details regarding safety and construction, so we appreciate this update from Rev. John.

Ocean Grove boards on Oct. 1, 2017: bikes and dogs allowed whenever. Dogs can also go on the beach.   A woman with blue hair—am I blue?    Paul Goldfinger photo. ©  Click image to enlarge the picture.

By Paul Goldfinger,  Editor @Blogfinger

Notice the sign. In big letters it says WARNING!!!  NO LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.  Isn’t that enough warning for those who might consider swimming?  So why do we need 3 exclamation points?  We don’t need even one. There is a limit to how effective that sign will be.  Recently we heard from a surfer dude who wants red flags to be posted when the water is dangerous.   But maybe this sign is more than enough to try and discourage dopey daredevils.

And the sign says “No Diving!”  Is there any way  anyone could dive down at this beach.  I suppose someone might walk over to the pier and dive in, but if anyone is so inclined, the little message on the bottom of this sign is not likely to be influential. And besides, it’s all sand under there. Maybe the sign should also say, “Don’t stick your head in the sand!!!”

The lady with blue hair smiled at us as she went by, but she was moving fast, and we don’t know why she smiled or why she has blue hair in Ocean Grove.   This is a rare sighting here, but maybe she was going to Asbury to attend a meeting of the Blue Hair Society.

And the girl on the bike?  She was on the beach and came up to get her bike—seemingly caught between the seasons.
