We took a couple of days this week and went down to the condo at Barnegat. While we only had about 5-6" of snow here, there was well over a foot, if not 2 feet of snow there. This first picture is of the bay at sunset the night we arrived. I couldn't quite capture the beauty of it though. The pink and orange reflexion on the icy, snowy parts gave it a pearlescent quality.
The picture below is taken at the Barnegat Lighthouse on Long Beach Island. These are the dunes at the end of Island Beach State Park across the inlet - snow covered. There were many photographers with their tripods set up on the walkway hoping to get some wildlife pictures. We were told that there had been a seal in the inlet just before we got there - darn. The water was remarkably calm and although the temp was about 33º, we were quite warm as we walked along the rocks to the point.
Okay, a little out of order, but you can see the lighthouse as you enter the area by the visitors center. There was a very narrow pathway to walk through - not shoveled, but just compressed snow.
This duck was sitting on one of the rock. You can see how peaceful the water was. There are some flowers floating in the water that a group of young adults had thrown in just before we got there.
This is the view of the lighthouse from the point. I have to say that I have never been on the beach when there's been snow. It is quite pretty.
In the afternoon we took a ride to Cape May and after walking around the outdoor mall and doing some after Christmas shopping, we drove around for a while to admire the holiday lights. This is the gazebo in the middle of town.
