Down The Shore at Ocean Grove!

Ocean Grove, New Jersey

During our day in Ocean Grove, down the shore, we wandered around the beach. 

The powerful Atlantic Ocean had a strong riptide that day. It was also a brutally hot day and hazy, so we couldn't stay long. 

The beach was not officially open because it was early in the season and there were no lifeguards, although plenty of people were on the beach anyway because of the heat.

Ocean Grove Camp Meetings!

Ocean Grove, New Jersey tent

Lovely Ocean Grove, New Jersey, down the shore, was founded in 1869 as a Methodist Camp Meeting town. Even though Ocean Grove was eventually required to become part of Neptune, New Jersey, it still has a very strong religious spirit.
