Asbury Park, NJ USA 4-4-18

During my quick trip to NJ last week, I was able to get away for a few hours and take some shots of the boardwalk in the iconic town of Asbury Park, NJ. Enjoy!

Moonville Tunnel

A couple weeks ago when the boys had the day off of school, I was able to get them off the computer with the promise of a cool destination. All I knew is that the place sounded really cool: Moonville Tunnel.

I wasn’t sure what to expect. The closer we got to Moonville, the more scrappier and dilapidated it became. We saw lots of characters and lots of broken down houses on the way: we saw a road rage incident with a guy in Army fatigues, small children playing in a swamp, and we saw lots of chicken, horses, goats and all kinds of trash.

After the day ended we agreed that we couldn’t decide which was more interesting – the actual tunnel or the sights on the way.

Cabin Shoot

Cabin - 1

Forget the fact that I slept on this bed about 2 hours because I felt like I was sleeping on a slant with my husband next to me, I loved the vintage goodness of this cabin when we stayed at Mammoth Cave, KY. The kitschy-ness, adorable-ness was almost too much to handle, and I would love to come back. The negative: there was a little bit of a Friday the 13th vibe going on after dark so I was feeling a little uneasy. But that’s my own fault because it’s one of the first horror flicks that I ever saw as a kid. And I felt like I was hearing that Jason Voorhees hiss all night.

Anyway, for these shots though, they were all done during the DAY. 😀

But really, next time I go there, I’m bringing a hockey mask because even though it would freak me out, this cabin would be an awesome photo shoot!
