Nothing brings back wonderful childhood memories like a great Amish/farmer’s/flea market. It was a wonderfully warm, October sunday morning spent at the Columbus Farmer’s Market today.
The Avalon Historical Society recently revealed the winners of their 2011 Photo Contest. I’m proud to say, my photo below placed third in their Scenic Category. The photograph, along with all the other winners, will be on display at the Avalon Free Library History Center until June 19th.

Without a doubt, one of my favorite rock groups is New Jersey’s own, The Brixton Riot. Their perfectly crafted jangle pop is absolutely infectious and their live performances are nothing short of perfection. I have had the honor of sharing the stage with these fine gentlemen in the past. Please do yourself a favor and check these fellas out. You will not be disappointed.

The shore is easily one of my absolute favorite places to spent a long Fall weekend. Specifically the towns in Southern New Jersey: Avalon, Stone Harbor and Ocean City. The Summer crowds are gone, but a good number of local merchants are still open for business. My wife and I spent Halloween weekend at the Windrift Hotel in Avalon, NJ which was fantastic. The weather was beautiful… chilly, but perfect for Fall. A trip to the INCREDIBLE Cape May County Zoo, drinks at Fred’s Tavern, and a sunset stroll on the Ocean City boardwalk…
I spent every Summer with my mom and dad in Stone Harbor. My favorites memories of my childhood revolved around staying at the Dunes Motel, casually window shopping on 96th Street, and spending nights on the Wildwood and Ocean City boardwalks. Decades later, nothing has changed. The same stores are open. The same mini-golfs are still there. No arcades have closed. The same motels and hotels look exactly as they did more than a generation ago. Time stands still in these towns.
That’s the way it should be.
