  11. Stunning shots! The city hovering in the background lends a certain magical feel--if nature could feel more magical--as if you've found a secret garden...

  12. Wow!!! Awesome captures. I'llhave to check this area out. My sister-in-law has a place in Ocean City (NJ) that we visit every once in a while, I bet this isn't too far away.

  17. BethF, it is just a nice trip up Rt.9 or the Parkway (rest stop exit in Galloway) to Oceanville. There are some nice trails, the car road, towers.
    Then you can go to Smithville or Oyster Creek to eat!

  22. Great photos.
    The wildlife in our area is
    still enjoying an oil-free
    environment. But the winds may
    change all of that .
