At the beach yesterday

Sandy Hook

Yesterday was the only day all week that rain was not in the forecast. We took advantage by heading to Sandy Hook. We first went to the free Visitor Center, which shows much of the wildlife and plants on Sandy Hook as well as some of its history. Sandy Hook was an old army base and is now government property. They have free classes, museums, a working lighthouse, Coast Guard base (closed to the public,) bird observatory, protected Osprey nests, seining classes, old barracks, old cannons, and so much more cool stuff, including the bay and beach (as Sandy Hook is a peninsula.) It has been a favorite place of mine since childhood, and every time I go I learn something new.
