It was Neil’s birthday on Saturday, and we decided to have a night out in Ocean Grove. It’s rare that we do that on a weekend, since we don’t enjoy crowds or traffic, but hey, it was a special occasion!
I didn’t feel like lugging my DSLR around with me (another rare occurrence) and so I borrowed Aidan’s cheap camera and brought that instead. “We don’t need any artsy shots, really – I have so many – let’s just get some fun family snapshots,” I said. And that’s what we did. Mostly.
I’ll admit, I still tried to get some artistic photos… I had limited success, but it was a fun challenge, nonetheless.
Traffic was easy, parking was hard, waiting for a table for supper was even harder, but in the end we had an enjoyable few hours in a place we like: Supper at Nagle’s, a walk to the Asbury Park boardwalk, dessert from Ralph’s Italian Ices, and some fun family snapshots.
Happy Birthday, Neil!
