Posts Tagged ‘October in Ocean Grove’

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

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.

Recently we heard from a surfer dude who wants red flags to be posted in October 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 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.
