Bridge Walk, Beach Walk and Picnic in the Park

***PLEASE NOTE THE TIME OF THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CHANGED TO 12:15.***


***FOR GPS DIRECTIONS PUT IN ADDRESS: 5 Rumson Road, Rumson NJ***

Hello fellow Walkers! : )

This will be quite a bit different than our average ‘board’walk.

It will involve walking in the sand and getting our feet wet, so if that’s doesn’t sound like fun, then this is not the walk for you. But for those of you who love to wade along the ocean’s edge, get ready to roll up your pant legs…and enjoy the ’true’ shore with me!

On Sunday June 22nd at 12:15 AM we will meet in Rumson at the foot of the Rumson-Sea Bright Bridge (across from the corner of Rumson Road and Waterman Ave.…see my map shown above. There is a small park there with a playground called West Park (see red star) where we will congregate. You will need to park along Waterman and Lincoln Aves. (not on Rumson Road or Packer Ave.) but parking is free. I would suggest carpooling if you can, and please be aware there will be some beach traffic so add some extra time for traveling.

Once gathered we will cross the bridge and take in the magnificent views of the churning Shrewsbury River. On the Sea Bright side we will cross Ocean Avenue to a free public beach there and begin our beach walk.

We will walk for about a mile along the shore, gather up for a photo, then turn around and walk back along the shore, across the bridge and to the park. The walk will be about 2.5 miles in total.

Then we can begin our picnic. : ) The park has a wonderful view of the bridge and river; we will probably see the bridge open for passing sailboats and larger motorboats. I am going to bring Italian sub slices, chips, cookies, ice, water, cups, napkins and plates. There are a few benches but it would be good if you packed yourself a towel or chair for sitting on. Remember to wear easily removable shoes, sunscreen or a hat…comfort is key!

For safety reasons and crowd control I must limit the group of attendees to 30. So please do not sign up unless you are quite certain you will attend…and more importantly CANCEL if you cannot…in case there is a waiting list.

IN CASE OF RAINY/UNPLEASANT WEATHER I WILL CANCEL THIS EVENT and will notify you both here and by email at least one hour ahead of time.

    Eli - you are a wonderful hostess and went above and beyond, put a lot of thought, time, and energy into this meetup to make it a wonderful experience. This walk and picnic is just what I needed and want to thank you. Hope we can do it again, it was just what the doctor ordered.;) Btw, when you said picnic, I didn't expect you to go all out as you have, you are wonderful person and I didn't expect such a spread. Mind you, this was basically my first meetup and I enjoyed it totally. Next time, I hope to reimburse you for your time and outlay, you are so like me, when it comes to hosting an event, you think of everything. What a wonderful time and beautiful, thoughtful day. I truly enjoyed it and want to say thank you.;)))
