We have had so many wonderful events this year but I have to say our walks are great because of the PEOPLE who attend! Everyone comes with a smile and a positive attitude and it is CONTAGIOUS, period!
But I have to say this day ROCKED! The weather was perfect, the history fascinating, the views EXCEPTIONAL (heh heh) LOVE TO YOU ALL!
And a warm welcome again to our newest members: Kathy, Ann, Martin and Valerie!
Please come back soon!

I cannot believe I have lived here all my life & have never been that far into sandy hook. Certainly got a history lesson today! lol Enjoyed our climb to the top of the lighthouse. Those of us who stayed to tour the light house walked between 6 & 6.75 miles, depending upon whether you walked to the beach front. Could not have asked for a better day weather wise!!!

From what Daryl and I see on the radar and read in reports from Sandy Hook, the walk is on! It's warm out and the weather seems to be clearing. Remember to dress in layers and bring water if you think you'll need some. Also it might be good to throw a blanket or beach chair in the trunk in case we run out of seating for our picnic. See you soon! ~Elle : )

It looks like we'll have a large group for this event! I suggest you pop a lawn chair or blanket in your car in case we run out of picnic table space. Also, tours of the lighthouse are limited to groups of eight and sign-ups begin the minute their doors open at 1:00 P.M. The tour guide wants us to know there are 95 steps in a spiral staircase, and a nine rung ladder at the top to climb into the lens!
My legs gets a little wobbly at heights, but I'm going to try it for the view!
