No Other Place Like It
Over 100 miles of uninterrupted shoreline, scenic vistas, beautiful towns, dynamic boardwalks, stately lighthouse, and so many tales of yore. The Jersey Shore is one of a kind, and we like to keep it that way, thank you very much!

Casino Pier and Seaside Heights 2013
By the end of the Summer, 2013, the famous Casino Pier at the Seaside Heights boardwalk was partially open with rides and games, after being heavily damaged during Hurricane Sandy.
Lavallette & Seaside Heights July 2013
After Hurricane Sandy hit, it was questionable if the summer of 2013 would be the first summer of my life that I would NOT spend time at the Jersey Shore. Thankfully, and through the brutally hard work of so many folks, we were able to stay in our usual rental in Lavallette. Make no mistake, there is still a lot of pain, hardship, destruction, and hard work ahead of so many folks. But we are thankful to have had our time there this year, and more than happy to help pump some money into the local economy to help Restore The Shore.
Seaside Heights Boardwalk After Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey where it hurt most... our beloved shore communities. Specifically, Seaside Heights. Summertime mecca for the unwashed masses, The Heights is the place to be for boardwalk culture, sleazy shops, cheap beer, and expensive thrills. January 12, 2013 was one of the first Saturdays that the island was open to the public. 2 Months after the storm, so much cleanup has already happened, but the damage is still striking. What remained of the boardwalk was torn down. Both amusement piers were destroyed. And of course, the Jet-Star in the ocean... without a doubt, THE symbol of the storm. Jersey Strong! We will rebuild...
A very strong thunderstom hit us at Lavallette in July of 2012. Afterwards, a spectacular lightning show danced off shore for quite some time.
July 4, 2010
A beautiful Independence day visit to see Lucy The Elephant at Margate City, and then fireworks in Island Heights, NJ.
Navesink Light To Avon-By-The-Sea, November 2009
It was a beautiful November day, so Maureen and I decided to head down the shore for a bit. Stopped by the Navesink Twin Lights and proceeded as far south as Avon-By-The-Sea where, just by luck, I was in the right place at the right time.
Point Pleasant Boardwalk 2008
Seaside Heights' little sister, the Pt. Pleasant boardwalk, on a warm and beautiful summer evening. Also some Fourth of July fireworks to cap off the evening.

Lavallette Labor Day 2006
What better time to go to the shore than during a hurricane? Ernesto decided to pay us a visit during our annual Labor Day pilgrimmage to the beach house. Mark and Christina joined me this year, and we said "Ain't no Earnesto gonna keep us away." We start with a very blustery day of storms, followed by one of the most beautiful beach days I have ever seen, followed by a spectacular sunset and some Kodak Elitechrome slide film
Seaside Heights Boardwalk 2006
A few photos from a night visit to the famous Seaside Heights Boardwalk.
Asbury Park 2006
Asbury Park, NJ in the summer of 2006. A lot of the deterioration has already been cleaned up, the boardwalk is being cleaned up, and you can sense that something big is about to happen.
Old Jersey Shore Photos
When I was 11, my father gave me an old camera and some black and white film. I shot many terrible pictures of camping, pets, and the Jersey Shore. We developed all this images in the darkroom in the basement. Here are a few classics from Lavallette and Seaside Heights, NJ, from the summers of 1989, 1990, and 1991.
