Beach Island Off-Season
(Perhaps the Nicest Time of Year!)
Long Beach Island, located off
the southern Ocean County NJ coast, is a popular summer tourist
destination, and for good reason. Its beaches are white sugar
sand and the water is clean and clear. But to many mainlanders
such as myself, the best time of year to visit is off-season
when the beaches are almost deserted, the air is crisp with
a salty smell, and the skies are blue!

A few miles north on LBI is Barnegat
Lighthouse State Park, located in the Borough of Barnegat Light.
A beautiful maritime
forest nature trail is located within the park, but no pets are
allowed, so no photos were taken on this visit.
Of course, the focal
point of the park is Ol' Barney! Dozens of fishermen, both on
shore and afloat, fish along the Barnegat Inlet, some on the long
pier east of the light (dogs are not allowed on the fishing pier).

about Long Beach Island
| The Pine Barrens
is becoming a popular tourist destination. It offers history, nature, boating,
camping, fishing, swimming, and most of all, peace and tranquility. It's
important to families who live here, whether for a few years or many generations,
that our peace and tranquility be preserved.A local lawyer or doctor won't
look any different than his neighbor who works the land. Thousand dollar
suits aren't what impress people of the Pines - taking care of nature and
fellow man is what matters. To that end, it is important for you to know
that as a visitor to our precious Pine Barrens, you should show respect
for the flora and fauna, for the historical buildings or their remains,
and show respect for the "locals". Walk and drive gently. Treat
our Pine Barrens as you would want a visitor to treat your own home town
- and your own family. Thank you.
