I would like to bring my son Sam. I think he would dig it.
Now, not to sound foolish, (something I'm good at) Let's say I don't know where these bogs are, which I don't, you can provide direction?
I kinda know the way out to Wells Mills but that's about it. The part of Barnegat I think you mean is probably a place I generally just pass by or go around.
Hmmm boy! That "Egg Harbor Hurry Up" sounds delicious!That is WONDERFUL news! Wells Mills is very near and dear to my heart AND my home - it's where I first really learned to appreciate the Pine Barrens about 25 years ago. Those of you who haven't been there are in for a real treat on Sunday. The lake is gorgeous; where I first learned to canoe. The trails are great - you'll see!
Eight years ago, I interviewed Cliff Oakley about his family and the cabin. If you're interested in his story, here's the link:
It is a good life to live so near the Bay, yet still in the tranquility of the Pines. Thanks for reminding me how lucky I am; sometimes I forget. There's lots of exploring to be had here too, and who knows, maybe one day I'll find that gold that Captain Kidd buried somewhere along the shores of the Barnegat Bay!A magnificent piece.
Look forward to seeing you.
I get nuts reading on all this stuff because my love of the shore pines exceeds all. I could have lived that life and never wanted for anything else.
These folks and baymen alike were incredible. Aside from where I am now, I've always felt my best up around Tuckerton, LBI, and I harbor fond memories of Point Pleasant & inland of there in the 70's. aside from my littlin's, I'd trade it all.
I'm Counting the hours. See ya.
