Island Beach State Park - New Jersey - Bay Side by MotherNature

Island Beach State Park - New Jersey - Bay Side by 

One of our favorite stomping grounds is Island Beach State Park in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, USA. Here we fish, watch birds and other animals, walk the jetty, take pictures, and generally enjoy ourselves like little kids:>)

There is a fee to get on, in most cases, but I believe it’s not outrageous, and for those with families looking to spend a day at the beach (lifeguard, showers, dressing rooms, toilets if you’re at the bathing beach area), you can’t ask for a better experience.

I love nature, science, poetry, prose, art, music – you name it! Now that I’m retired, time is mine to spend as I wish (pretty much), and I wish to take pictures of our natural world.

Bringing the outdoors in for others to see, especially those who may not get the opportunity to wander next to a pond, fish at the beach, or tramp in the woods, is a pleasure. I hope to build a window to the wonders of nature that fill our everyday lives.

  • This is the quiet side, the bay (or sound) side, and you wouldn’t believe the size of the wild blueberries that grow here! Thank you for visiting and leaving this nice comment:>)
