After visiting Washington, DC, the next stop on my vacation was Atlantic City, New Jersey. Atlantic City is known for casinos, the Steel Pier and it’s famous boardwalk. While I found Atlantic City interesting, there’s a another beach and boardwalk a few miles south. Ocean City, New Jersey features a 2.5 mile long boardwalk and 8 miles of pristine white sandy beaches I liked a lot.
It was late in the afternoon when I visited this Ocean City beach and many of the day’s beach goers had already left. This photo has a lot of the elements found on any New Jersey shore beach. A Lifeguard boat and stand, brightly colored beach umbrella, a seagull and a surfer.
With a hurricane spinning in the mid-Atlantic, surfers were taking advantage of the whipped up surf to get in some rides. Others were flying colorful kites, reading and napping in the cool ocean breeze after a hot day.
Young kids and a beach sure make for interesting subjects.
No sunsets over an eastern shore but the late day sun angle sure made for great light here.
I agree, kids, both young and old, are fun to photograph.
Great capture of the boat and beach umbrella. Well done. I’d love to see a larger size.

One of my favorite places as you well know. 🙂
Alas, no sunsets, but the sunrises are magnificent!

I have lived my whole life in OC. Love the photo and write up! The photo of the lifeguard boat and stand really captures so many memories and feelings of living at the beach. Well done =)
