If you are looking for a vast location to explore then I’d recommend taking a trip to Wawayanda State Park in Sussex County. There are trails, an abandoned building that formerly made iron and a beautiful lake and beach. I went for a walk to unwind and I really was blown away by the textures I was finding at my feet. The sun was giving me brilliant shimmering sand and nice harsh shadows on the surrounding buildings. It’s a cool place to get some exercise and experience some peace of mind.
Bradley Beach is one of many areas along the New Jersey shore that was ripped apart during Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy. The wind was so strong and cold when these photos were taken. In fact, all of the photos you see here are all of the photos I took because my hands started to freeze up. Summer is coming though!
