Manasquan – July 2007

Saturday, July 7th, 2007

Decided to introduce the gf to my old vacation stomping ground – Manasquan, NJ this past week. We stayed at the Inn on Main, and despite the neurotic owner had a great time. Highlights – the beach, Surf Taco, Asia Basil, and oh yeah – the beach.

I’ve got a more lengthy post done, but it’s on my laptop and I don’t quite feel like turning it on at the moment. 🙂

Hiking the Sussex Branch Trail

Sunday, June 24th, 2007

This past Saturday the weather was perfect for a hike… The obvious options were High Point State Park, and the portion of the AT that crosses through Vernon, NJ. When the option for the Sussex Branch Trail was discussed, it easily won over the others. In short – the trail is 21 miles long, flat, straight, and is nothing more than a former rail-bed that was retired in 1966. Next time I’m going to look into getting a bike, as while the trail is nice on foot to take it on wheel IMHO would be a crime.

Enjoy the pics. Anyone that wants a high-resolution copy should drop me an email.
