Sandy Hook and Seafood Lunch

Took a drive down to the national park in Sandy Hook, NJ today. Surprised, there were actually a lot of people there.

The place is HUGE. I’d been there once before for a walk during the warmer months. Did not at all remember how big it is.

Met a guy who was taking photos who said he had seen about a hundred seals about an hour earlier. Amazing – I’ve never seen a seal on the East Coast.

Afterwards went for a yummy meal at Bahrs Landing (seafood) in Atlantic Highlands. The waiter should have steered us away from the lobster roll when he realized that we had had good lobster rolls in the past. It’s a shame – all the rest of the food is great, but lobster rolls take a special kind of place to make them right. The restaurant is definitely one of my favorite places.

The German Onion soup was fabulous – it’s like French Onion soup except it has a big soft pretzel on top instead of French bread.

Hunkering down for the big winter storm tomorrow and Friday. Governor Cuomo already sent out a memo saying New York State anticipated failing to respond properly.

Whatever happened to the days when snow meant fun?
