Stronger Than The Storm

We took a day trip to one of our favorite shore destinations, Asbury Park. This was our first visit since Superstorm Sandy. It was great to see the beach full of sun bathers and colorful umbrellas. The boardwalk was bustling with people and the food stands all had lines. We walked past Madam Marie’s from the Bruce Springsteen song and it reminded me of his lyric “down the shore everything is alright”. There are certain places that are constants in our lives. At different times of my life I have visited different New Jersey shore towns, such as Belmar, Avon, Seaside Heights, Point Pleasant and Wildwood. Each town has a unique quality and caters to different age groups and life styles.

The advertising campaign for the shore this year is “Stronger Than The Storm”. People from New Jersey, and especially the shore, are known for their resiliency in the face of adversity.

Madame Marie’s in Asbury Park

Madame Marie's, Asbury Park

Did you hear, the cops finally busted Madame Marie,
for tellin’ fortunes better than they do …

Bruce Springsteen, 4th of July, Asbury Park (Sandy)

If you grew up in New Jersey this song was a big part of your youth. As you walk around Asbury Park you can’t help but think of some of your favorite summer songs.
